I have taken ownership of a new 2017 Mercedes E-Class 220D at the end of March. The £50,200 car has been fantastic...for the first 1000 miles. The Good: Consumption average around 46mpg Air suspensions are fantastic. Driving quality is excellent both in Sport+ mode for fun and Comfort for ..well comfort. The Driving Assistance is a really nice feature to use during motorway driving and you can cover longer journeys with less stress and fatigue. LiveTraffic is terrific, you really get from A to B faster with less traffic. The Bad: -Car boot door not always opens or closes as it should. -Media player sucks so much that I just turn it to radio. Looking for a song is really a tedious task. -Central Console keys are layout for the European version, so all most important buttons are hidden on the wrong side. -You are a beta tester for the Driving Assistance, so always keep an eye to sudden accelerations or sudden disengagement of the auto pilot -Speed limit signs are at times missed or not in sync with the actual Navigation data. -Internet radio takes 5 minutes to buffer and keeps re-buffering often, even in Central London. The ugly: A tension bar must have come off inside the sunroof system and now when driving, the car feels like a plumber's van with loose metal pipes at the back.:fail The widescreen(optional 495GBP) behind the steering wheel shows blinking icons with screen artifacts. To use some online services you need to buy Vodafone 4G data plan. If you buy Vodafone 4G data plan, you only get 3G data connection, so forget about doing some serious work from the car or entertain the family as it is too slow to even open the BBC website. On top of that mercedes.me will offer new services in June, such Tidal Music Service and In-Car Office Great fun to experience these 2 new services with such a slow internet speed in the car. I manage to use the Parking Pilot only once as it is really hard to get the car to find a space and have the time to park by itself. The only time that the car managed to find a space the Parking Pilot scuffed one of the alloy while performing a simple parking manoeuvre. The cameras/sensors seems not to communicate that well with the park pilot. :fail The car has lost its intelligent light system, ILS. As the notification system puts it: The Intelligent Light System is inoperable. Basically the car only switch to beam or high beam only the right front light. That's really frustrating as I can't even legally drive the car at night. I really want to like the car as it is great: I can manage to use my mobile for 4G data, I can cope with my wife complaining about the boot's door not opening or closing, I can even babysit the Driving Assistance and not have the digital key working for my phone after paying £250 for it. But the fact that the car's core components are literally crumbling after 1700 miles, that's really unacceptable. Last week I booked the car in for tomorrow to check the sun-roof and widescreen issue, but as the ILS failed just today apparently I need to book another appointment, with the only slot available in 4 weeks time. I got told to speak to the service manager and see if they can fit in the repair of the ILS as well. I'll keep you posted.
