    Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA 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.

    Owner Reported Trouble Spots

    The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

    Body Integrity

    Squeaks, rattles, wind noises, loose or cracked seals and/or weather-stripping, air and water leaks.

    What Owners Say

    Air or water leaks

    "windows that needed adjustment to close correctly"

    Anonymous, CT (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400 3.0-L V6 turbo)

    "Water drain from windshield clogged and leaking into passenger side cabin"

    Anonymous, GA (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 3.5-L V6)
    Seals and/or weather-stripping

    "Service performed (filter changes) that were not sealed up correctly so water leaked at base of windshield when taken through car wash. Fixed at dealer no charge."

    Anonymous, FL (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E250 BlueTec 2.1-L 4 Cyl diesel)
    Squeaks or rattles

    "When the vehicle backs out slowly from an inclined driveway and sidewalk ramp, the vehicle makes one or two cracking noises as though the frame and windshield areas are being stressed from movement of the car."

    Anonymous, CA (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 3.5-L V6)

    "Car had multiple rattles. One in the driver's door is still there after multiple trips to dealer"

    Anonymous, UT (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E63 AMG 5.5-L V8 turbo)

    "Unusual noise when closing convertible top"

    Anonymous, NC (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400 4.7-L V8 turbo)

    "brakes needed to be re surfaced"

    Anonymous, AZ (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400 3.5-L V6)

    "Rattle in the transmission gear selector arm"

    Anonymous, NC (2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 3.5-L V6)

    "Shortly after purchasing this car in September 2017, I observed a fairly consistent and extremely annoying vibration/rattle which seemed to emanate from the headliner. I quickly discovered that pushing up on the headliner along the sides of the panorama roof would mute the noise. The dealer dropped the headliner several times, and once even replaced it entirely, but was unable to identify the cause. Eventually, I found that gently pressing upward on the mesh fabric roller shade for the panorama roof would also mute the noise, as would retracting the shade entirely. I then advised the dealer that I suspected the source was the roller shade or the housing for it at the rear of the panorama roof. Finally, I convinced the shop foreman to drop the headliner again and replace the roller shade. After having repeatedly gone in and out of service throughout the entire 2.5 years of my ownership (in 2019, my car literally spent as much time at the dealer as it did in my garage), replacing the roller shade in January 2020 finally fixed the problem. The car also exhibits a creaking/groaning sound from the driver's seat bolster control pod, which is located between the seat bottom and the center console. This noise was also first observed shortly after purchasing the car. It is intermittent, and the dealer has made repeated attempts to address it, and although it seemed to have been eliminated about six months ago, the noise returned when I picked up the car after the roller shade replacement. All of the above described work was performed under warranty, at no cost to me."
