2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Wagon

The more I see station wagons and their body styles, the more they grow on me. This 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Wagon is an older example, but I think it has plenty of potential to keep living a great life.

This is a 4 matic wagon (it’s got the Benz all wheel drive system), so it could be a terrific year-long car. At only 115k miles it seems like a sneaky sneak deal. It does have a rebuilt title, which I try to avoid generally, but I’ll drop the CarFax below so you can be your own judge.

The 2011 model year was only offered with a 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. At release, the base price was ~$57,000.

In testing by Car and Driver, it looks like it ran a 6.8 second 0-60. That’s definitely no AMG wagon time, but it’s serviceable.

Today, econobox 4 bangers with a tiny turbo run that though. I mean, I guess that’s good a thing. A 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Wagon is cooler though, no matter what they tell you.

Although 12 years old, this wagon has retained its good looks. The e-class sedan from the same generation has as well. It’s one of the best-looking gens in my opinion, and everybody else’s, factually.

This wagon comes well optioned, “fully loaded”, according to the post. Decoding the VIN (WDDHH8HB9BA516604, CarFax linked further down), shows it’s got standard features, plus:

  • lighting package (bi-xenon headlamps, adaptive highbeam assist, active curve illumination)
  • Harmon Kardon (HD radio) surround-sound system. Better include a solid mp3 media interface.
  • rearview camera
  • heated front seats
  • hilariously dated navigation system
  • obvs keyless entry

Also a non-standard bonus (depending on how you feel about the whole up-badging thing *grimace*), looks like there is an AMG wheel package. I mean, they look nice, but I don’t know. Hard not to be a snob sometimes. (I’ve never owned a car worth more than $25k for what it’s worth…)

It’s time to get into the good stuff now, those rear seats! You can fold them all down so you can have >100 soccer balls in there. The exact right amount. In all seriousness, it’s a ton of space and is perfect for weekend/beach trip outings.

The really really exciting part is the rear, rear seats. That’s right, these e-class wagons are 7-seaters! I honestly had no idea until a buddy sent me this listing.

This reminds me of Tesla’s newer jump seats, except there’s actually a place to put your feet here. Who’s over 30 that’s not going to feel nostalgic riding in one of those seats, waving at all the other drivers in stop-and-go traffic? This is the real sauce of this car.

The panoramic sunroof is a nice touch, keeping the interior looking somewhat modern. Being in some newer cars that have these, the kids at least really appreciate them. Sometimes that’s the whole reason for a thing.

The interior and front seats are looking pretty crispy. About as clean as can be expected, and not showing hardly any wear.

The middle rear seats (because dope third row) show the same story. The car really does look like it’s been well-kept.

Okay, so what’s the deal with the salvage title then?! On 04/17/2019 the car was declared a total loss. The CarFax does not state why, unfortunately. At the time the car had 62,000 miles.

It’s now been over 40,000 miles since it received its salvaged title and got back on the road. Reading through the CarFax, it seems like the vehicle has been maintained pretty well. I don’t know guys, this is kind of a tempting car. Especially with 3 kids…
