Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.
Emissions
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

Long a luxury sedan benchmark, the E-Class places comfort, function and good reflexes above glitzy flash. Passengers are treated to a plush ride, comfortable and supportive seats, as well as an impeccably finished interior.

Yet the driver's wants aren't neglected, with responsive handling, taut body control and ample power from the E350's 302-hp V6. This car pampers and proves it can dance as well. While not overtly sporty, the Mercedes is athletic and has the chops to qualify as a sports sedan. Highly capable handling is aptly combined with great balance and composure. This makes it all the more commendable for serving up a fabulously cushy ride and an extremely quiet cabin too. Expect 21 mpg overall from a rear-wheel-drive E350.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Display screen goes blank

"Has to be reset periodically"

Anonymous, TX (2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 BlueTec 3.5-L V6)

"The backup camera stopped working when the car was put in reverse. The dealership mechanic repaired the issue."

Anonymous, CA (2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 BlueTec 3.5-L V6)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"Not connecting to phone"

Philip O., FL (2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 3.5-L V6)

"The car has a Command knob which controls features like the GPS display and radio/stereo. It is known to commonly fail because the shaft of the knob is made of a cheap plastic. The dealership charges over $1000 to replace the knob...I bought one online for $250 and replaced it in about 15 minutes by watching a YouTube video (normally, I never do car repairs!). Another alternative is to replace the plastic shaft itself with an aluminum one available online for about $25 (the part probably costs a dime to manufacture). However, this repair is more intricate, so I opted for the $250 option. I find it absurd that MERCEDES-BENZ built these devices with a cheap part made of plastic when, for literally pennies, they could have made it from aluminum. But, I guess they like charging their customers over $1000 for something so easily fixed."

"Engine ran rough and check engine light went on .MB service codes diagnosed some sort of ME module that software that they said need to be upgraded i,e, replaced at my expense ($600.).After I took back the vehicle it had a brief "relapse" within a week or so. They took it back in and ran another diagnostic (no charge this time) and told me the codes indicate I need a new fuel pump and filter. The car is running well, so I plan t get a second opinion. Also advised to have fuel injectors cleaned but I ma also going to get a second opinion about that too"

Engine mounts

"Here's a vehicle that has under 30,000 miles and was drive in smooth Florida roads it's entire existence. Yet IO was told that the motor mounts need replacing. I have had vehicles with more mileage driven on harsh roads and never had the motor mounts need replacing."

Oil leaks

"The engine seal had to be replaced. The part was only a few hundred dollars but several days of labor cost thousands."

Jon P., NC (2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 BlueTec 3.0-L V6 diesel)

"The five previous minor oil leaks showed up under the front of car on cardboard we kept on the garage floor. When we took the car in for service, the leak was from the turbo seals which wee replaced with minor loss of engine oil. Our timely noticing the leak and getting service kept engine damage from taking place. Then this May 15, 2020, at about 123,600 miles, the dash notice to check the engine oil level at the next refueling came on. Arriving at home, I checked the oil dipstick to find the oil level over two quarts low. To be safe, I added a quart and took the car in to our local MERCEDES-BENZ dealer for service. This time the vacuum pump had a major oil leak which was dripping on the hot engine exhaust manifold, and being burnt up there before dripping on the garage floor. The vacuum pump and seal had to be replaced."

"Left xenon headlight turned to pink. Had to pay $325 for new one, but white color of lamp totally different from other lamp. Waited 4 months for burn-in as directed by dealer but no change. Corporate MB USA agreed to replace other headlamp free of charge, but this headlamp did not match replacement on left, but was closer to the one it was replacing. So dealer re-installed original right lamp and put this one on the left to replace first replacement lamp. Still not great match between right and left side. I think I got shafted by both dealer and MB USA! Very disappointing, cost and disturbing experience."

"Engine was very noisy when purchased. Local dealer brushed off my concerns telling me the clattering noise was "normal for the model year". Later, either first or second service visit, the dealer service department told me they had an internal recall on a specific set of engines which required a full bearing replacement in the engine. Apparently the bearings had been slightly oversized for the shafts and rods, thus requiring replacement. This meant a full overhaul of all bearings, but not to"
