Very nice luxury Mercedes.

The weight of the car is nice and handles well on the road. The feathers the car comes with are also very nice such as the massaging seats and led lights. The car is comfortable on the road and allows you to go from sports plus to econ mode. The company is very reliable.

It is a safe car that will warn you when you are too close to another car or object.

My E class is a great fuel efficient car. Although it is a big sedan, it is quick and does not eat up a lot of gas. It has a lot of great safety features.

A locknut in the steering rack may break under high load, possibly causing the steering to become stuck in one position.
Consequence:
A car that cannot be properly steered has an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering rack, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 25, 2019. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

The Occupant Classification System (OCS) may not be properly calibrated, resulting in the front passenger air bag not being deactivated if a child seat is in the front seat.
Consequence:
If a child seat is in the front seat and the passenger air bag is not deactivated, in the event of a crash, it can increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion, free of charge. The recall began November 26, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

The cover for the starter battery may not cover the live positive electrical wire, and in certain crashes, the vehicle's strut brace may deform and short circuit the battery.
Consequence:
If the battery is shorted, the emergency door unlocking would be deactivated for an outside responder and the short circuit could increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy:

The seatbacks of the front seats may not properly lock on the right side of the seat.
Consequence:

Remedy:
