Well, my 2017 E400 Coupe has been causing me nothing but issues since taking ownership of it as a new/demonstrater vehicle, that the service department for my dealer either takes several attempts to resolve or still can't resolve. Including bluetooth interface issues, ongoing suspension problems, unexpected cabin noises; all reeking of a poor quality product. Of those faults, the squeaking coming from the suspension/running gear seem to be the worst.
Since taking ownership, there has been a varying level of high pitch squeaking coming from the...car, I've had the vehicle back to the service centre numerous times with no resolution. I'm taking it in today again to see if they can offer me solution. So far they have, swapped the rear suspension from left to right, to identify where the noise was coming from, which resulted in them swapping the right suspension. The noise persisted and has moved to the front now as well as the back. Various other trouble shooting options have been explored including removing and refitting the tyres, glaceing the brakes, etc. But still the issue remains. Obviously, as a consumer in Australia, you are covered by certain consumer protection laws which relate to provision of products being 'fit for purpose and operating as expected. I'm seeking a resolution from Mercedes Australia, before I look at the options that are open to me.
Amazing car - simply the best
Wow this is just so much car. I've had it almost 3 years and I love the technology, the styling, and just how it drives. It really sort of flies down the road it is so smooth. Mind-blowing amounts of tech that DO take getting used to, but once you do it's an absolute pleasure. Automatic everything. With the drive assist I can drive 2 hours to see a friend and arrive with no fatigue at all. I don't see why anyone would drive anything different than this its a wonderful car. Amazingly everything works after 3 years with the exception of one s...ticky door lock knob. Interior is very spacious with the gear selector on the steering column. I LOVE IT and I will probably keep it after the end of my lease as the newer ones are less attractive and larger in size.

Simply the best
Simply the best vehicle you could own, it was voted safest car in 2017 in the world, and I can see why, its semi autonomous driving ability, makes every other car feel out dated, its glass dashboard makes you feel you are the starship enterprise, its seats are simply sublime, the ride and power are excellent, it has a style and presence on the road that no other car comes close to replicating. Every panel fits perfect, every bit of material is of the highest quality. There is not one fault I can find with this vehicle. The only way to experience this is go drive one for a weekend, and indulge in the luxury that only german engineering can provide.
E350e, Useful Electric Motor, Great Multi-BEAM LED Headlights, autonomous tech ok
There's plenty of stuff written online about the new E-Class (W213). I'm going to try to put stuff out there that isn't already online, in particular for the E350e plug in electric hybrid.
To test battery vs gasoline, I drove the car on an identical course at 1am in the morning so that traffic wouldn't be an issue.
The car ran in full electric mode for 22.9km (ie: almost 23km) from fully charged 100% to 11% at which point the petrol motor kicks in.
On exactly the same course with the car in E-save mode (ie: not using any net...
Mass of technology poorly thought throgh
I bought a new E220d coupe earlier this year on the basis of the clams by MB that it is the most'intelligent' car in the market. This may or may not be correct. What is clear is that ithe technology is very poorly delivered and highly confusing to use.
Starting with the users manual (500 pages) being almost unintelligible. The manual also describes instruments which don't actually exist in the car.
Functions can be manipulated by numeroously duplicated instruments spread over the control surfaces. In the central consol there is a touch ...pad sitting over the top of another instrument that does the same thing, but just gets in the way. The GPS works occasionally, but not in certain regional areas. I have given up entirely on the voice activated GPS. Even something as simple as the radio is made to be increadably complex, but fails to have a scan function.
I have this amazing car since 3 weeks ago and to be honest it is amazing car I’ve ever had. It is a high-tech and so comfortable car. I bought it from Mercedes Benz Melbourne and also many thanks to James at Mercedes Bens Melbourne. Has a 4 cylinder engine but it is so powerful compare to other 4 cylinders cars.

This has to be the nicest and most comfortable vehicle I have ever driven. It is so smooth and has too many safety features to mention.
Very economical and just looks amazing. This car handles and turns beautifully. You will not find a better car. This is luxury at it's best.
