- Excellent fuel economy, loads of torque, quiet as a church and as solid as a bank vault.
- Controls take a bit of getting used to.

I purchased my S350 and traded in my 2009 SL550 and 2011 GLK. I was at first concerned about going from a 400+ HP sports car to a V6 diesel, but within 30 minutes of real world driving I forgot all about my thirsty V8. The S350 has loads of torque which is what really makes the car feel powerful; other than a slight hesitation off the line, I don't notice a lack of power in regular driving. On the highway you would swear you had a much larger V8 under the hood. I don't miss the V8 at all, especially when it comes time to refuel. I am averaging 37 mpg in mixed city/highway driving with a heavy foot, much better than the 12-15 mpg I got with my SL.
On top of all that the car has an exceptional ride - very quiet, secure and incredibly comfortable....read morehide

- Lots of interior rattles, high cost DEF if dealer installed
Purchased As New
Car overall is great. Have 19,000 miles on it now, average 31.6 mpg, 37+ on highway. Some interior rattles can be aggravating. Easy to use navigation system, smooth ride, very comfortable seating for long trips. Easy to drive, diesel is quieter than expected. Plenty of power and acceleration.
Adding DEF yourself is easy and far cheaper than dealer charges. Overall really enjoy the car and would buy another....read morehide
