Looking for a used Mercedes - Suggestions?

Greetings all,

First time poster getting right down to it. Stepping out of a 2006 BMW 325xi and looking for something a little roomier with the family expanding and also looking to give Mercedes a try.

When I was looking for my BMW I had the luxury of time and enthusiasm since it was my first real car. I looked at all models from nuts to bolts. Plus, I was more familiar with BMW's models and with MB, I'm not.

Now, I'm hoping to tap into the community here and draw upon the collective knowledge to at least point me in the right direction to narrow down my search so I'm able to focus on researching a cross section. I'm hoping to at least avoid problem models.

I'm a SE Pennsylvania resident for 4Matic is a must along with decent acceleration. Other than that, my nice to haves are bluetooth and button start and tighter steering/suspension.

I'm looking hoping to spend around 35k though a little south would be nice. Also hoping for 2009 or newer and ideally around 40k miles. I'm out of town 2-3 days a week so I only put about 7k miles a year on my vehicles so it will be a 6-8 year long-term keeper/kid hauler. So far I was thinking 2010 e350.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Well I think an E550 4matic might be just the ticket. Rocket fast and very capable in the snow along with an excellent safety record.
