  • Hello
    I am in the market for CPO 2011 E350 with good options.
    One that I found is 2011 E350 Bluetec CPO with Premium2 and sport pkg. about 25,000 miles.
    It's listed as $45,872.
    Is this a reasonable price?

    Thank you all in advance.

    So long as the car is "certified" and is in pristine condition, I would go for $43,500. It is a diesel, which is not necessarily high in resale, but those engines last forever!

    If you plan on keeping it for several years, I would pay $43,500.

    Good luck!

  • Thank you for the reply abacomike!
    So should I go for that price excluding tax, any other fees or OTD?
    Also, do u have any other advise?

    Thank you,
  • abacomikeabacomike South FloridaPosts: 3,751
    I would pay that price plus tax, etc. just make sure the car is certified and is warranted by Mercedes for 6 years and 100,000 miles.

  • I see. Cool. Thanks.
    BTW, I thought the CPO warranty is 12 months extended to factory warranty so wouldn't it make 5 years and 100,000 miles?
  • abacomikeabacomike South FloridaPosts: 3,751
    You might be correct, double check that! But if it's a super clean car and has had all of it's services, then that price would be right about what you should pay. It also pays to get the service/maintenance pkg. Diesels need to be cared for properly to ensure years of great performance. See if the will throw that in for you!

  • I'm looking to buy 2013 E350 4Matic with Premium 2, Lane tracking, package with Steel Grey Metallic exterior in Illinois. The MSRP is $62,425. What is the best deal I can get this month, any year end savings? Please let me know. Thanks.

    I bought a similarly equipped e350 but not a 4matic and got $8600 off a month ago.

    Right now, there is a $4000 incentive on E350's, however I don't know if it applies to 4-Matics - you should check with the dealer - it might only be on the rear wheel drive cars. I heard that there is a $2000 incentive on the 4-Matic. Again, you need to check on this at several dealers.

    Let's assume you can get a $2000 incentive on your desired car. Invoice is about $58,000 so subtract the incentive from invoice and you are at $56000. I would offer $56250 and see what they say.

    If you build the car here on Edmunds, they will show you what the average person is paying without that little known incentive. This assumes a $2000 incentive. If it is $4000, subtract $4000 from invoice.

    Good luck!

  • Hi,
    I am in the market for an E350 sedan either new (2012/2013) or CPO 2010/2011, black exerior, light color interior. Not sure where to start and how to determine the best price for the car?
    Any help is truly appreciated!
    Thanks!
  • 2013 E350, with P2 Package, Lane Tracking, Wheel Locks, Wood and Leather Steering Wheel, Diamond Silver Metallic, Sport Package, Burl Walnut Interior, Comfort Box, MB-Tex, Split Folding Rear Seats, Rear Trunk Lid Spoiler, Wheel Package. MSRP: $62,445. Cash Price: $54,445. I also added on MB Tire and Wheel policy, Dent Zone Policy, LoJack, MB 5 yr or 50k mile prepaid maintenance, Resist-All for interior and exterior, and Cargo Tray for a combined $3,664, including a $900 combined discount. With TTL and other fees, the OTD price was $61, 927.96. I had no trade-in. The dealer got me 2.99% for 66 months, with a credit rating of 801. I'm keeping my old car, though, a 1996 Ford with some 170,000 miles. She's been good to me...

    Im considering the same car, without rear spoiler or split folding seats...> Where are you located?
  • I went to the dealer in Grapevine, a suburb of Dallas.

    I just purchased a 2013 E350, with P1 and P2 Package, Lane Tracking, Parktronic, Blindspot, active seats (messages back and legs while driving), vented seats for AC and heat, sports package with AMG rims, leather seats, cargo box. The car cost 64K, I got a discount of 7K from USAA (4K from USAA and 3K from dealer), that brought it down to 57K. I paid 4K in taxes (no trade in) and 2.6K for two year 75K extended Mercedes Benz warranty. The dealer got me 1.9 percent load from GTE credit union. USAA is offering 2.2 percent.

    Not sure if I overpaid for the 2-year additional warranty up to 75K because I read in some places between 2000 and 2400, and I paid 2.6K including taxes. But I'm happy because it will allow me to keep my car longer, and if I trade it in after 5 years it will add value to the trade. Rides greats, super quiet. I cannot feel the engine running while stopped. And it feels like those Cadillac of yester-year (very smooth and comfortable.
  • Sounds like a nice car. But the extra warranty usually won't transfer to a dealer. If it is still covered you'll get some prorated cash back. It will transfer if you sell privately. Check out pentagon federal credit union! Last I saw was 1.5 for 60 months. U just have to donate 15 bucks to their charity and ur in like Flyn. I own a 2007 e350 4matic. Nice car. Traded my accord v6 for it. Paid 32500 in April 2010. No xtra warranty but cpo for extra year. My front axle went at 34000 miles right after warranty ended. I only had to pay labor of $1005!!! Said it was a 3000 part. Damn 4matic!!! It happens a lot apparently
  • I ordered my Mercedes E350 and it will be coming into port on February 6th. I was wondering if anyone knows how much the conquest money will be for February?

    I just finished ordering my 2014 E350 Sport Sedan which has been redesigned for 2014. Production is scheduled for mid-March and delivery sometime in April/May. They discontinued the P2 Package and replaced it with more a la carte options. Also discontinued is natural beige leather (a terrible decision on their part).

    Base MSRP IS $52,000 (according to my dealer)

    I ordered the car as follows:

    Iridium Silver Metallic
    Black Leather (required with ventilated seats)
    Premium 1 (same as 2013 option)
    Keyless-Go Package (includes electric trunk open/close and keyless start/entry)
    Ventilated Seats
    Lighting Package (full LED headlights and LED daytime; curb illumination; high beam assist; adaptive lighting; multicolor interior ambient lighting)
    Wood Leather Steering Wheel for Sport
    AMG Wheel Package with sport Steering Wheel
    Rear Spoiler
    Illuminated Door Sills
    Wheel Locks

    MSRP expected to be $65,000+

    Looking forward to taking delivery. The 2014 Sport will be significantly different from the luxury model - no more Star hood ornament and CLS 550 instrument cluster - new dash and new seats.

  • You are going to love your new car. But the 2014 E-class is a design refresh. The next-generation E-class will arrive in 2015. And unless you forgot to list some additional options, the $13,000+ addition to the base price seems high.

    Well, I forgot the lane-tracking package for $900, so add that.

    $52000.00 +

    $900.00 (Lane tracking)
    $4500.00. (Premium package)
    $1500.00. (Lighting package)
    $850.00. (Keyless Go w powered open/close trunk)
    $1700.00 (leather)
    $760.00. (Metallic paint)
    $550.00. (Wood leather steering wheel)
    $750.00. (AMG wheel package)
    $350.00. (Rear spoiler)
    $450.00. (Ventilated seats)
    $800.00. (Illuminated door sills)
    $910.00. (Shipping and transportation)

    As you can see, it adds up. Keyless go package includes some of what P2 pkg used to have above and beyond keyless go.

    These prices are estimated and will probably be higher with the devalued US dollar.

    As for design refresh, this is a refresh for the luxury version, but a major change for the sport version. I was told that the predicted body change for 2015 has been delayed for 2 years. That's why I'm buying now rather than 18 months from now.

    I just got off the phone with my sales manager at my :( dealership whom I know personally. He tells me that there won't be a body change in 2015! He said the Mercedes Benz marketing and sales people were at his dealership last week for meetings about upcoming vehicles. The question about the E Class overhaul which was originally scheduled for 2015 has been moved back because of the more than 4500 new parts and changes being made to the 2014. Normally it would have been a refresh, but this was more than just a refresh.

    Dashboard is almost a duplicate of of the 2013 CLS 550. Electric steering; ECO start/stop, foot release for trunk, thicker and more comfortable seats, 7" display (was 6"), new air vents, new lighting front and rear, addition of 100% LED lighting package, entirely new front end for sport model, entirely new sheet metal for rear quarter panels, completely new ambient lighting, increased use of natural woods, to name a few.

    The most recent info puts the revamp of the E Class in 2016 or 2017.

    That's what I have available at this juncture.

    Production on the 2014's begins after March 3rd. My car is scheduled for production between March 15-31. Release date for the 2014's is tentatively scheduled for May 1, 2013.

    Mike.....that sounds like a sweet car. Can't wait until you get it to hear about it.

    Would love to get my hands on your "nearly new" trade-ins" sometime.

    Would love to get my hands on your "nearly new" trade-ins" sometime.

    All it takes is a one way trip down to south Florida, graphicguy. The one I have now is a Diamond White 2013 with natural beige leather, Premium 2 Pkg, rear spoiler, AMG Wheel Pkg, Lane Keeping and Blinds Spot Pkg., Wood/Leather Sport Steering wheel, Wheel Locks, Rear Comfort Box (in trunk), MSRP was $65,000.00. I have 4,500 miles on it and by the time the new one gets here, it will probably be closer to 6000 miles.

    I expect him to give me about $51,000 for the trade - the car has no dings, scratches, etc. and is actually showroom condition. I usually make out better with a trade since I don't pay sales tax on the trade - saves me about $3000 in taxes. I would have to sell it for $54,000 to break even. A new one just like the one I have is selling for $57,500 (assuming conquest incentives).

    So I usually just trade them since they give me top trade value for the cars I trade each year and then sell them almost immediately on their lot and make a few thousand for themselves.

    I was up to the dealership this morning for a carwash and reviewed the order they placed. It will be the perfect car for me assuming I like what I see. If I don't like it, I will just keep this one.

    Mike....sounds like a sweet car. If I were in the market, I'd fly down, write you a check, and take a coupe of days to drive home. :)
  • abacomikeabacomike South FloridaPosts: 3,751
    FYI!

    That pull ahead program is for leased vehicles only, unfortunately. As for special incentives like they mention, you can't use those in conjunction with USAA BUYING SERVICE, which is a $2000 below invoice deal - and I can use my $1000 Mercedes Club bonus with USAA. So I make out better the way I do it - requires the dealer to sell me the car below invoice.

    I'm hoping there will be some additional incentives to bring in E Class owners to trade their E's on the newly revamped E.

    My dealer ( I work with the GM ) is always up front with me on every incentive I can qualify for.

    My fingers are crossed this time for the loyalty incentive from Mercedes Brnz Credit.

    Thanks for the info, GG

    Mike...I had read on several occasions that BMW and Mercedes were in a fight to gain market share in the U.S. Heated competition is always good for the consumer.

    Is it in "bad taste" to ask your dealer for the VIP money from Mercedes?
  • abacomikeabacomike South FloridaPosts: 3,751
    Is it in "bad taste" to ask your dealer for the VIP money from Mercedes

    No, not with the relationship that I have with my dealership. But, you cannot combine certain incentives with other incentives. As I mentioned before, I can combine the USAA "below invoice price" with the Mercedes Benz Club of America Coupon for $1000. I can also combine the Mercedes Benz Financial Services Loyalty incentive (if it becomes available again) with the other two incentives. But you cannot combine any other incentives or discounts with those three.

    When I traded in my Lexus (which I hated) for the 2013 Mercedes, I did not take the conquest incentive because I made out better with the USAA pricing below invoice plus Mercedes Benz Club coupon.

    When my car comes in from Germany in late April, he will probably consider the VIP incentive, but I will still do better with USAA pricing, depending upon the pricing incentives they have available on the 2014's. Sometimes, at the beginning of a new model year, they give an amount below MSRP as their incentive, so the VIP incentive would be better for me. Whatever I do better with, that is what he gives me.

    He does not mind selling me cars for very small profits or no profits because I send him so much business - besides, he always has a very good customer - according to him, his best customer.

    We'll see what happens - I won't know until late April.

    Never checked in here for advice before I made the move, but I recently leased a 2013 E350 Bluetec a few days ago. My first ever lease. I had been tempted a week earlier by a special sitting on the showroom floor - a P1 pano Bluetec with a $489 lease sign in the window, but with $3750 down. I really wanted P2, and a different color (special car is black on black).

    I now have a white on black car with P2/pano/parktronic/lane tracking/power outlet/folding seat/spoiler. MSRP over 63K, they gave me a fair price for my old car, I threw in $3500 from that, payment is ~$570 + tax, 24 months, 10K/yr (I live close to work). I hope that's a fair deal, seemed to be cheaper than anything I had seen so far. I know they are blowing out these cars for the upcoming facelift, but I like the quad light design more.

    Hey Mike,
    I am looking at ordering a 2014 E350, but my dealer has no info, no delivery, nothing. Have you confirmed that yours has been built. I have a couple friends who just returned from Germany where they took delivery of a 2013 E350 Wagon and they said the 2014's were not in production yet - that was last week - they were at the plant!
    Also, I am interested in the Diamond White, but have never seen one. Is it more Ivory than White?

    I did order mine - 2014 E350 Sport Sedan in Iridium Silver, Gray perforated Leather, Lane Tracking/Blind Spot Monitor, Ventilated Seats, Wheel Package, LED front Lighting Package, Rear Spoiler, Wood Steering Wheel, Wheel Locks, Comfort Box, Keyless Go Package, Premium Package.

    It was ordered 5 weeks ago and is scheduled to be built April 2nd.

    The ordering info has been available to dealers for 6 weeks, so either your dealer is an idiot or he is lying to you. My dealer already has 40 of them on order. Mine is expected to be here on or about the first week of May.

    As for Diamond White, which is what I have now with Saddle Leather Interior (natural beige leather is discontinued for 2014), it is about $760 more than regular metallic paint, and about $1600 more than Polar White. The Diamond White is a bit off white whereas polar white is a true bright white. If the cost is not detracting you, get the Diamond White. Much more elegant that a white enamel.
