The last of the previous E Class model. A very good car. Well built, stylish comfortable and economical. Spacious inside, cost effective and looks good. Dealer excellent, well organised and extremely helpful. Best car I've had and as it is used for business fits the bill perfectly. Would like to see MB bring out a long wheelbase E Class.

New E-Class 350D Sport. Superbly built with some very clever technology especially the fully automatic headlights. Wonderful engine providing awesome performance through a silky smooth 7 speed auto gearbox. Very comfortable and quiet cabin. Only disappointment is the stereo which for a £36000 car is not good enough.

good load lugger - starts on the button first time - ride somewhat too firm but accept in does have sports suspension!
Early niggles with boot lock - plastic mech tended to shatter!
160k miles - turbo still ok.
270 CDi Engine - still powerful - no smoke - no oil burn.

Had a problem with losing power and it took the main dealer two weeks to solve - and they are still not sure what they did that solved it! For an older, big car I am reasonably pleased. it's a balancing act - comfort v. costs.

A well built practical comfortable and economical luxury saloon that has 130,000 on the clock and still looks smart and is regularly asked to do 500-600 miles in a day which it does without leaving me tired or stressed

Needed a new water pump (slight leak, not an emergency). Can only base on fuel cost. I'm aware that some cars of similar spec. are more economical. a sixth gear would probably improve fuel consumption.

Good car overall, but a step backwards from my previous model e320 as the sports seats are uncomfortable and the grip from the 18" wheels is terrible in anything other than dry weather
