Dislikes on my 2016 E350

1. Can't permanently turn off ECO system.
2. Overly complicated infotainment system.
3. Combined single wipe and wash push button.
First wipe is dry when trying to just clean w/s causing potential for scratching. Mine is already scratched. Also may accidentally engage turn signals or high beam.
4. Very harsh ride can feel every bump.(MI roads)
My wife's car is a Honda Accord and is much more user friendly.

Drove a 16 E350 Sport a few weekends ago, a very attractive car and I agree eco/start stop is annoying as all hell. The moment I disabled the extraneous features (lane departure, blindspot monitoring etc) I began to enjoy the car.

We have a 2016 CLA loaner from the dealership right now. The ECO system can be turned off. We did and it has not reactivated on restart. If you scroll through the menu, you should be able to find it. I cannot imagine they would not have the same option on the E class.
