Hi. My name is Steve and I a am a California native. I recently purchased a 2007 E350 for my wife. This is our first Mercedes (and first luxury auto). Most of the cars have been practical (honda accords) and this time I decided to purchase a used Mercedes instead of a new Honda again. We love the looks and comfort of the car. The E350 has 40K and was a one owner. I have a variety of other vehicles (2003 F350 4WD diesel crew cab long bed for towing my 37" Hitchhiker 5th wheel trailer, 1969 Ford Bronco and 1968 Ford Mustang convertible). They all are great in their own way although the Mercedes adds a new level of class to the fleet. I am sure there will questions and issues I have concerning the E350 so I thank you in advance for the help and advice.
