Road Trip in My 2012 Sprinter 3500!

This weekend I hit the road in my 2012 Sprinter 3500! We put in over 2100 miles visiting family in Pennsylvania, attending a SprinterFest East and making a quick trip to New Jersey. We towed a pretty heavy trailer the whole way and spent some time sitting in traffic. I think 12 mpg overall isn’t too bad!

Special thanks to Sun Motor Cars for hosting all of these Sprinters!

2013 vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 Sedans – Photo Comparison in White with Tan Interior

redeisgned Mercedes E-Class

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Classes started to arrive yesterday and today was my first chance to take a closer look and a test drive. The changes to the interior are subtle but noticeable. The ambient lighting, additional aluminum accents and central clock give it a richer look. There are changes to the steering and ride quality that make it more quiet and comfortable. The most noticeable changes are to the exterior and it looks great! The new nose reminds me a lot of the CLS-Class. Here are some side-by-side comparison pictures so you can judge for yourself!

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars!

2014 E-Class AtlantaOur first shipment of 2014 E-Classes just arrived! I have been looking forward to seeing the changes in person and so far I am impressed. It looks sleek and modern. Hopefully they will be inspected ready to show by tomorrow afternoon! I will park one next to a 2013 E-Class and compare.

Distronic Plus now with Steering Assist!

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class should be arriving any minute now and it has some exciting new technology! This is the first of our vehicles to get the Steering Assist upgrade to the Distronic Plus. Now the radar can keep you both an appropriate distance from the vehicle in front and in the center of your lane. This system uses the electromechanical steering to stay centered as oppsed to using the brakes like Active Lane Keep Assist. I can’t wait to try it out! Also, doesn’t the 2014 E-Class look great in this video?

I just drove the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 Bluetec! It was great! I felt like it had plenty of power and pick-up. I can’t wait for it to arrive at the dealership (hopefully within the next couple of weeks).

The trainer who has been driving for the last 3000 miles says his best mileage has been 37mpg on the highway and below is the current trip odometer.
