Reasons to Invest in a Mercedes E Class


A Quiet Ride


The E Class features either a four or six cylinder diesel engine, offering a smooth and quiet ride. If you already own one and this doesn’t seem to be the case, we urge you to make the trip down from Balham to our Mercedes specialists. There may be something wrong with your engine, which requires Mercedes diagnostics and subsequent Mercedes repairs, or long overdue Mercedes servicing. Engine noise can be a sign of emerging problems, which could lead to failed MOT testing. So it pays to nip it in the bud!


Impressive Performance


…but quiet doesn’t mean that the performance is anything but punchy. Both engines offer a lot of power, which brings about fantastic acceleration, top speed and handling. If you’ve noticed a drop-off in speed over the time you’ve owned your vehicle this is grounds for investigation by a Mercedes specialist. Certain Mercedes repairs, and indeed annual Mercedes servicing, will insure that this performance stays sky high and unhampered.


Tech Savvy


It simply wouldn’t be a modern Mercedes without sophisticated integration of technology, and the E Class doesn’t disappoint. It packs in electrical seat adjustment, a Garmin sat-nav and a high-resolution, 8 and a half-inch touch screen as standard. As with anything electrical, sometimes thing can go wrong with these attractive and useful features. So if you find yourself with a concern, give us a call. We regularly assist Balham drivers who are experiencing tech faults. These only sometimes are significant enough to cause the failure of MOT testing, but they can be a real nuisance – and thus warrant Mercedes diagnostics, Mercedes repairs or fixing up during the annual Mercedes servicing we provide to vigilant owners.
