Review

I've always had a Honda or Toyota so I didn't think I'd fall for another model, but I love this Mercedes. Although it is 17 years old, you would never know it. The appearance is timeless!

1992 Mercedes-Benz 400-Class 400E 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought it used from a dealer with 35,000 miles. I've been happy with the thing since we started. Keep V rated tires on it for intended performance. Now it cost about $2,000/yr in maintenance, but that's cheaper than a new one. The power is great and handling supurb.


Best Features

The power and mileage are great for that vintage car. The ride and handling equally good. Comfort and trunk size great for long trips.


Worst Features

The boss must ride the brakes. We usually only get about 15,000 miles on a front brake job, and they chatter.

Review

To pay $19k for a car that was over 60k and get over 5 yrs and 100k - with about $5k total in maintenence is a good deal. Still runs like a champ at 184,500 miles - you gotta take care of it.


Best Features

My favorite characteristics are torque and HP, especially in the 45-85mph range, and climbing hills. Original wheels, but changed from 195/65 to 205/60 tires 50k ago and that improved handling.


Worst Features

The AM radio stinks, and the car runs hot, especially in city/summer conditions. The dirt shield and a 4.2LV8 take up lots of room and nowhere for heat to vacate, radiator issues and faulty wiring harness have been the key weaknesses.

Review

WOW - What a completely thrilling driver. This little car packs a most excellent punch. I am absolutely satisfied with the handling of the vehicle, almost like a sports car. With 140,000 on the clock the vehicle is as tight as most new vehicles. All round excellent vehicle, great for road trips ... very comfy.


Best Features

4.2L V8 PowerHouse Engine. Icy cold, fast acting A/C ... even in 110'F weather the car is comfortable early in each small trip. Comfy seats.


Worst Features

Bigger fuel tank ...
