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


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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger fuel tank ...

Review

I bought this car with 77K miles on it after my 1986 300E was hit from behind at 45 MPH by a Ford Explorer ( lady picking up toy on passenger side floor for child in car seat) The 300 folded nicely and after a year of PT I bought the 400. I have very much enjoyed the car. The only issues that really was bad is the wiring harness on the engine was a little to "enviromentally friendly" and literally started breaking down in operation. It was a 1K replacement with replacement and the 90K mile service. Make sure this was already done if you buy one - or ask for a discount because it NEEDS to be done now!


Favorite Features

Great power and good mileage. This car gets up and flies! Mileage is about 23. My 300 was 24 - but 1/2 the power. Car looks like it is 5 years newer than it really is in design.


Suggested Improvements

Better seat ajustment for lower back support. I'm 6'3 and head room is tight - but acceptable. Would like to not have to remove the wind pan below engine to change the oil.

Review

This is basically a 300E with the power of a V-8. When driving at 80mph on the freeway, the engine is only at 2400 rpm's. It moves and handles well.


Favorite Features

How it is built to lean into turns.


Suggested Improvements

They've already taken care of that with the new E430's.
