2012 E350 4Matic
What are some of the most common, serious issues with the 2006 E350? I am interested in making the switch from my C to a E and just looking for pointers in terms of potential issues to look out for before purchasing. Any advice would be highly appreciated.

My 06 350 4matix has been problem free so far for 110,000 miles. I have been very diligent with maintenance and started increasing my budget plan at 100K so I can , if I choose to, keep the car for another 8-10 years. I've recently replaced both batteries and had transmission, brakes, radiator and every fluid serviced wether it was on the service schedule or not. Also, you will read many worrisome posts about the expected balance shaft failure. The reality is that among those cars affected, which mine is, the service life expectancy is no different unless the previous owner has not followed the lubrication specifications and interval requirements. So, if you cannot verify that with the car you are buying, then be prepared to accept the risk. I'm sure there may be others who will disagree and warn you away from an 06 but my experience and research has yielded different results and I preferred the 06 features and less complicated technology for the long-term ownership plan.

I recommend this topic be frozen by the moderator and placed in a sticky of "best of" and restarted so as to maintain the focus.

Just a suggestion,
Peter

E550
Thanks for all the insight. My E550 is telling me service D in 12 days. I guess I'm not the only one confused by the D when everything else shows numbers. I will try to call up what is needed on my 2008. Correct me if I'm wrong, on the 2008 you must hit the reset button 3 times and not hold it for 5 seconds?

2003 E320 RWD
Hello,

I have a 2003 E320 RWD (Canadian) I inherited from my dad. I am afraid that while playing with the FSS I may have deleted what service it was calling for, last I recall was a Service F. I read the manual and it says if you delete codes by accident you should consult the dealer to have it brought back. Does anyone know how I can salvage this mess? My bad 100%, but I hope to get the right maint done as that is what dad would have wanted. Thank you

At this point in time, it won't matter all that much. Just ensure you are keeping up with the filter and fluid replacements as per time/mileage recommendations. I did the same thing years ago and just pressed on. The age of the vehicle will now require maintenance that falls outside the guidelines anyway. I am back on track as per FSS.

Is there a way to confirm individual service items using FSS or do you have to confirm the entire service?
