It involves injecting a fluid called AdBlue--an aqueous urea solution--into the exhaust-gas flow. Complicating the issue in the past has been the high sulfur content of the diesel fuel sold in the U. If you log an awful lot of highway miles, however, or think that gas is going to get a lot more expensive, or feel that better gas mileage might help save the planet, the E320 BlueTec may very well be worth the price. Before we go any further, we should mention that the 2007 E320 BlueTec is on sale in only 45 states.
I drove an hour plus took the time to get cash before going down Friday morning since checks are not accepted. When gas prices climb to four bucks a gallon, I'll gladly accept a diesel Benz, but until then, I'm a gas man. Too bad it would still take at least 30,000 miles to break even in fuel savings alone. Bad business and would never recommend buying a vehicle from this dealer. The E320 BlueTec is perfectly at home on the highway. Depending on my experience with this car will determine if I will buy another Mercedes but if all goes well I would recommend Star Motors.

The tech and mechanic who helped me were very informative and helpful describing the car options and operational controls. Mercedes says there's a second version of BlueTec that would allow the E320 to meet California standards. I got to the dealer. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. But as the miles wore on, the diesel engine--which is only slightly noisier than the gas V-6--lost its luster.
But even though throttle response on the E350 is sharp, it takes more pedal pressure for passing acceleration. WheelSystemFilter selectedWheelSystemList, null ; wheelSystemFilter. System may not detect some objects, obstacles or vehicles in the area into which the vehicle would move.

So for 2007, the E320 BlueTec is only available in the 45 states that have not adopted California's regs. DoorsFilter selectedDoorsList, null ; doorsFilter. For 2007 and beyond, diesel-engined cars have to meet the same emissions standards as gasoline-engined cars.
But as far as the sales personnel once the techs and mechanic arrived they left the scene. See Operator's Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings. The E320 BlueTec doesn't deliver as many smiles and doesn't save much money over the premium-sipping E350. SellerTypeFilter selectedSellerTypeList, null ; sellerTypeFilter. NewUsedFilter selectedNewUsedList, null ; newUsedFilter. Even though the fuel savings are significant, it's hard to ignore the E320's torque, especially since it peaks at 1600 rpm.

All together the dealers fees were outrageous and the extended warranty quotes were considerably higher compared to the extended warranty I bought with the car I ended up buying from another auto dealer using the same exact extended warranty company. Residents of California, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont will have to wait until next year, when the BlueTec receives a 50-state-compliant upgrade to its emissions system. That's not only a cheaper premium than any hybrid's, but it also provides a larger fuel-economy boost than most. When it comes to fuel-economy numbers, however, the diesel delivers. .
In short, the diesel feels faster. It wafts over bumps, and gentle pressure on the pedal easily adds 10 mph to the cruising speed. California has already made the switch. Yet its cruising range will outlast even the most steadfast bladder--plus, it's the more satisfying car to drive. The seven-speed automatic in the E320 BlueTec is the same as the one found in all other two-wheel-drive E-class models, but the diesel gets the low 2. There is not one singular whiz-bang part here but a combination of exhaust components and engine controls. The turbo lag got old, especially after stepping out of the quicker E350.
Always secure cargo using the floor-mounted tie-downs. Our E320's 0-to-60 time of 6. Business opens at 10, vehicle did not looked like it was even moved and I feel like I was duped. This system is effective enough to meet present federal requirements but not the more-stringent California regulations. The BlueTec isn't lacking; it's just that the E350 is terrific. The problem for automakers is that diesel compliance is more difficult. It estimates but does not predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead.
