The Mercedes e350 is a popular luxury sedan that has been a favorite among drivers for many years. Despite its high-quality build and excellent engineering, the e350 is not immune to common issues that can arise with regular use. In this article, we will discuss some of the most common problems that e350 owners may experience and what we can do to help you fix or prevent them.
One of the most common issues with the Mercedes e350 is electrical problems. This can range from minor issues like faulty switches or bulbs to more serious problems like malfunctioning sensors or control modules. Some drivers have reported that their car’s warning lights, such as the check engine light, come on for no apparent reason, or that the car’s electronic features, like the audio system stop working.
To fix electrical problems, it is important to diagnose the root cause of the issue. Our certified technicians have years of experience and are skilled at diagnosing the most complex electrical issues. In some cases, the electrical problem may be caused by a faulty component, such as a sensor or module, which will need to be replaced. In other cases, the issue may be caused by a loose connection or damaged wiring, which can often be fixed by our certified technicians.
Another common problem with the Mercedes e350 is transmission issues. Drivers may experience rough shifting or hesitation when accelerating, or the car may fail to shift into higher gears. These problems can be caused by a variety of factors, including low transmission fluid, a worn-out clutch, or a damaged transmission solenoid.
To prevent transmission issues, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule. Regularly checking and replacing the transmission fluid can help keep the transmission running smoothly. If you do experience transmission problems, it is important to bring your e350 to Bavarian Rennsport for a diagnostic as soon as possible, as neglecting the issue can lead to more serious problems and costly repairs.
The Mercedes e350 is known for its smooth ride and excellent handling, but over time, the car’s suspension system can begin to wear down. Drivers may notice a bumpy ride or an uneven tire wear pattern, which can be caused by worn-out shocks, struts, or bushings.
To prevent suspension problems, it is important to regularly inspect the suspension system and replace worn-out components as needed. This can help improve the car’s ride quality and handling and prevent more serious problems down the line. That's why we include a visual inspection of your suspension during every service appointment, including oil changes.
Engine Oil Leaks
Many e350 owners have reported engine oil leaks, which can be caused by a variety of factors, including worn-out gaskets, faulty oil seals, or damaged oil pan. Oil leaks can lead to low oil levels, which can cause engine damage and lead to costly repairs.
To prevent engine oil leaks, it is important to regularly check the oil level and address any leaks as soon as they are detected. In some cases, replacing the faulty gasket or seal can fix the problem, but more serious cases may require more extensive repairs. During each service appointment, we include a complimentary visual inspection of the engine bay for oil leaks.
Brakes are a critical component of any car, and the e350 is no exception. Drivers may experience issues like squeaking or grinding brakes, or the brake pedal may feel soft or spongy. These issues can be caused by worn-out brake pads or rotors, a malfunctioning brake caliper, or air in the brake lines. To prevent brake problems, it is important to regularly inspect and replace worn-out brake components. If you do experience brake issues, it is important to schedule an appointment with Bavarian Rennsport as soon as possible, as neglecting the issue can lead to more serious problems and even accidents.
In conclusion, while the Mercedes e350 is an excellent car with many impressive features, it is not immune to common problems that can arise with regular use. By following the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule and addressing any issues as soon as they arise, we can help you keep your e350 running smoothly and prevent more serious problems down the line.

Bavarian and their staff went above and beyond with my Huracan service and repair. I was stranded on the side of the road near the shop and they immediately responded (in the rain as well) to get me up and running and back to the shop. Kind and professional. Highly recommend their shop and personnel.
When I had a recall and some routine service done on my vehicle, I was informed I needed strut replacement estimated at $2400.
I don’t usually shop for automobile service, but since Bavarian Rennsport was nearby, I called them. They responded quickly allowing an appointment for inspection and a quote within a few days. Their professionalism and thoroughness were amazing.
I had revealed the previously quoted estimate and wondered if I had been wise to do that. Bavarian Rennsport came back with news the vehicle needed a pair of struts and brake fluid service, however, their quote was considerably less than what I had received previously. Not only do I have a smoother ride, but I’ve also discovered a service treasure.
I am very satisfied with the work done.
Bavarian R S has state of the art diagnostic equipment.
The technicians are very knowledgeable and friendly.
The booking system is very user friendly
I took my 2020 Porsche Cayenne in for the 30,000 mile maintenance. I was impressed by the professionalism and caring that the Shawn and the Service Technician displayed. It is very rare and exciting to actually experience a business that cares about the customer as much as they do. I recommend them to other Porsche owners without any hesitation.
Superb service, awesome owners n staff.
BR really care about my car and me. My 2008 Mini Cooper has never been in better hands.
Car was in for several issues, when a very serious problem with the engine was discovered and taken care of.
I’m grateful to the owners and staff at BR for taking care of my car in a such great manner.
Had a six year old battery on my BMW that needed replacing and registered Shawn and crew took care of me quickly.
Felt weird initially taking my 2009 vw jetta into this place with Porsche, Ferrari and BMW cars all over the place but they treated me as ever other customer gave me pictures and went through my entire car. Would definitely go back.
My first experience with BR was truly exceptional. I didn’t understand their appointment procedure and ended up waiting extra days for the job to be done, but the ultimate outcome was nothing but positive. Amazing operation.
Italo and his team completed a thorough PPI on a 2015 Mercedes E63S for me. Super thankful I had it done, they caught a number of issues quickly and pointed them out. Very professional service and pricing is on point. Saved me major $ and headaches. All the high-end Lamborghini eye candy at the shop didn’t hurt either!
The shop provides excellent and meticulous service to keep my vehicle in top shape. The owner does go the extra mile to satisfy the customer’s needs. Highly recommend their service compared to other local shops and BMW dealerships.
