Any female drivers on these boards?

I don't see many ladies driving MB around the NY area. I may see a few in a C300 once in a blue moon but that is it.

There are around 10 E350's in my company's parking lot and all are driven by men.

I wouldn't say the same for BMW. I see a lot of ladies driving the 328's.

What gives?

In Dallas Texas, 9 out of 10 E350 drivers are women. At least in my area.

Maybe the ladies are in the back and the man driving is a chauffeur.
Regardless, I see about as many women as men in my area. Even more women than men in MB SUV's.
Maybe the question is the number of women driving "sports sedans" vs. SUV's in general.

My wife drives BMW and Mercedes. I can admit she drives much faster and more aggressive than me.

Interesting it seems you guys have more female Mercedes drivers than we do! As far as aggressive driving, our wives would probably outrace us any day lol.

My wife is the primary driver of the E350. I mainly drive a 335i or Triumph Street Triple R (motorcycle),

Our previous MB (C230) she was the main driver. She is more of a MB fan and I'm a bit more of a BMW fan.

2007 E350 4Matic, 1990 420SEL
Female driver/owner of 2 Mercedes!

I live in CT & am driving in NY all of the time! I've owned MB vehicles for the past 22 years. I love my older vehicle, a 1990 420SEL. It's a classic beauty! 4 years ago, I traded in my 1985 190E stick shift for a CPO 2007 E350 4Matic...big mistake. My "New" car, at 65k miles, was recently diagnosed with a bad engine balance shaft & a transfer case that needs to be replaced. $10k worth of repairs needed in one dealership visit. At least the heated seats work. Needless to say, I'm happy to still own and rely on the old faithful 1990 boat!

Yay, a female driver on the board! Ha! Sorry for what you had to go through with the E350! The cars of yesteryear were definitely built of a higher quality than those that are around today. The same goes for a lot of things! IMO! I still miss my 92 Lexus SC 400, which I sold a year or two ago. RWD is not a good idea for NY. Go figure!

How true

Last week I made my weekly trip to nearby large city. Within 3 blocks of my house, a driver made a sudden left turn in front of me. First time I have ever had to press the brakes hard enough to feel the ABS kick in. Ended up a foot from the offending car.
Coming back, I was on a four lane with a "5th" turn lane, thank God. I happened to be watching the car in the right lane just ahead of me and all of a sudden the driver moves into my lane with no signal or anything. If the the turn lane had not been there, I would have had to let the car hit me or pull into oncoming traffic. Ironically, all of us were driving about 5 MPH over the posted limit of 55, so no real reason to pass the car ahead.
The irony was that the traffic was no heavier than normal.
It's the season to drive carefully, very carefully. Watch the road, not your phone or navigation or screens on your car.

Was there during 1991 Persian Gulf War. Rules were relaxed so that some women could drive themselves and shop at stores alone. The ex-patriat American women were not looking forward to when the US troops left and rules returned to pre-war.

If a lot of guys like you think this is unacceptable, that itself is the real progress made. :thumbsup: Governments are usually slow to react to changes in public mood and perception.

2017 E400 Wagon Black/Black MB Tex P1 & Sport Wheel Package
I have been driving MB's since late 80's when I bought my 1972 380SEL beauty that I gave up when we moved from NY area to Texas in mid 90's.

Since then, my husband and I have only driven MB's.

We have C class, M class, E class for 10+ years plus our current
10 GLK & 13 E wagon.

I keep saying as we get older, this is the "last" one and the one's we are driving may be as we do plan on keeping these for some time.

A lot of women MB owners in my 'hood!

Wife and I are both driving E class lately. She's taken the 63 wagon and I'm stuck with the 550.

Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia does not have a democratic government. What the public want is not necessarily what they will get.

I feel like I always see ladies driving C Class or a SUV. There are a quite a few ladies where I work who drive MB's mostly all C300s and a couple who drive E350. I've never seen a lady drive a 550 of any kind or a high level AMG. Now when it comes to BMW cars or SUVs I see ladies driving those all the time. Idk why that is but I'll keep a closer eye out since I find that interesting.
