I agree with you. The designers did not put much effort in designing the new e-class. The front of the car is copied from the new Lexus GS-Series, and the back of the car is a Hyundai Sonata. The interior is much more improved than the 2003-2009 e-class (which were all the same car, minus the small exterior and interior changes for 07-09). Although, if you notice with the 2010 e-class interior, they copied off BMW with the center turning knob for whatever it does. I do like the interior of the new e-class, but the exterior lacks inspiration and development of a car that they hope will sell in these economic times. Even, the rich who can afford to buy luxury cars are cutting back on extravagant purchases. For Mercedes sake, I hope they can sell the new 2010 e-class, but I will not be buying one! I will keep my current e-class and keep driving it, until the wheels fall off! (lol).

LOL...wish you luck with your current E class, but according to my experience - it doesn't take long time until wheels fall off in MB E class world )). The quality of MB getting worse year after year. I had 2006 E 4Matic - the engine was changed after 8 months of ownership. Thanks God it was a lease. Now I have 2008 E RWD - strange noise from the rear. I actually was waiting for 2010 model and hoped it will be better than current one, but according to what I see ( I mean design ) - I doubt. I'll try CLS, if not - will go to BMW. Next spring new 5 series comes to market. Usually it copies design of 7 series. If this will be true - I like it.

I read that Mercedes reduced the list price of the '10 E-Class by that amount, so that MSRP is closer to the actual selling prices.
The corporate priority should put reliability and less hassle ahead of new features. Why keep adding new features if you can't get the ones you already have right? I think the high cost of ownership have really hurt German luxury car sales, and will continue to do so. I won't consider one until or unless I'm confident they're reliable.
#11 of 100 Will there be a diesel?

I looked at the announcement about the '10 E-class on the MB website, and they don't mention a diesel. Will they sell one in this country at introduction? Will they sell it in CARB states? Later? Never?

Yea, you can't go wrong with a BMW, i actually test drove a 5 series and it's an awesome car! Everything you could ever want it a car, the Beemer has it. My 04 e-class 320 has left me stranded twice, since I bought it brand new! The fuel pump had to be replaced twice, but it was under warranty. Now, I got this brake wear light popping up, but my serviceman, did say that my brakes needed to be replaced after only 35,000 miles and you know how much that's gonna cost, rite? It's almost like they program it to when you reach a certain mileage, its time for new brakes and actually, my brakes work fine. They have not been scrubbing or acting like they don't want to work! Anyway, I'm thinking I just need to buy me that new 2010 chevy camaro and cruise the countryside. I will be helping GM try and survive the car crisis!

would like to replace my parents 2000 E-320. I have some problems with 2010. besides the look. what is it with their packages. I have to order P-2 package just for the xenon headlight. that should be standard on a $50K plus car.

That's the way it's always been with E-Class. If you want Xenon and Keyless Go - you need P2 package. That's the way it is.
