    I'm hoping the nice folks on this forum can answer my question...

    We're looking for an 01 or 02 E320 wagon to haul my 3 kids and their friends back and forth to school and to activities. We would use the third row jump seat on a regular basis. Can you tell me if there is a/c in that area? I know there are vents for the second row passengers but don't know about those in the jump seat area.

    I really appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you!

    No third row a/c in my '07.

    To regularly carry anyone in this third seat is torture for all but the smallest humans.

    And, no baby/toddler car seat hook up either.
  • Hi there,
    i have a mercedes E320 2003 and the problem is i am not able to change radio stations(the ones saved on memory) from my steering wheel buttons, it only searchs manually once i click the next button from my steering wheel,but i wanted it to switch between the channels saved on memory.
    is there any way to make this?maybe from the menu?
    i appreciate your help.
  • Drive a 2002 E320 in Wisconsin. Have used Michelin snows for years on rear wheel drive wagons with great results. has nice sets of wheels and tires which will arrive balanced and ready to go your wagon.
  • Can someone explain the huge difference in specs for the cargo volume between the current gen wagon and the previous gen? Current is 24 cubic feet, previous is 43. The dimensions of the two cars are not vastly different. Is it all due to the sloping roof of the newer wagon?
  • am ready to trade my 2004 E500 AWD in and looking at possible new Benz purchase.Dealer sold only one so far and none in inventory. Seem to br rarer than hen`s teeth.Has N E one had N E experience wtih the newest model?..Very disheartened when told the beautiful " shooting break" would not be coming to the states .What a beautiful design.New E350 engine to be 300 hp V 6 .Hate 2 wait.

  • New e350 awd in Palladium`s a very nice riding car ..slightly underpowered for its size. Electronics relatively easy to learn..did get extended warranty as well as wheel/tire warranty (remember the pot holes)..Will keep u posted RolandThrust
  • I know this may be outdated now but I just bought a 2001 E320 Snow-white Wagon in April 2011 with standard rear wheel drive, and a low 102,000 miles- it's like a dream! Powerful V-6 221 hp, 5-Speed Tiptronic shifter. I think it is the most enjoyable car I have ever owned as it appears well maintained.

    I live in the Portland Oregon area my entire life. Apparently some younger people had the Mercedes in LA and put low profile chromed alloy wheels on it with low 'flat-runner' tires onto the vehicle. At first I thought it looked too much like a 'boyz-in-the-hood wagon- Snow-white with grey leather interior, and the pristine white with chrome trim looks so clean, but it draws rave reviews everywhere I go. Even police officers comment that they want one just like it and “where did you find this awesome looking car!”

    As a 6'1" 57 year old middle aged American male, I find the seats to be nearly like from heaven! I am sorry to hear that you wife finds the seat laps too long- as most auto reviewers over the years will complain of seat laps as too short and especially in many Japanese import autos. There is nothing worse to an average height driver feeling like he is falling forward off the seats because they are too short. I'd say if the seat laps feel too long, buy a nice luxury leather cushion for the lower back and this will push the lower derier forward a bit- adjust the seat back to lean slightly forward to make up for proper back support. If an adult is that small and shorter legs, I guess the only real sound solution is to buy a smaller car with shorter seat laps or to have a custom seat lap fashioned.

    If you can afford a new car like this Mercedes at $50,000, you should be able to find a custom auto interior shop that can refashion the seat lap for the driver.

    Good luck,

    Hi - I am considering a used 2011 E350 wagon. I was wondering if any owners of this vehicle could share their thoughts, likes/dislikes, etc.?

  • rockypaulrockypaul Posts: 104
    Love it. Too many improvements over my 07 to list.

    Things like push button seat folding flat, rear camera, hard drive nav etc.

    Bought as soon as the new model came out in 11.

    Thanks for the response rockypaul. I have never owned a wagon (other than when my parents had one when i was a kid 30-35 years ago). I first considered an SUV, but I think I have convinced my wife this wagon is the better choice: (1) wagon drives much better, (2) we don't need to tow anything, (3) wagon is close, if not equal, to SUV in weather/snow, (4) wagon has a third row of seats if we need extra seating for our kids' friends in a pinch.

    Can you tell me what your problem ended up being? We have a 2004 E500 that seems to have the same issue. Thanks !
