Vehicle1992 Mercedes-Benz 400-Class 400E 4dr Sedan
ReviewI 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!
Best FeaturesGreat 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.
Worst FeaturesBetter 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.

Why don't you change the engine oil the same way the M-B dealership does? Buy you an "oil evacuator" and literally suck it out via the dipstick tube. You don't even need to get under the auto at all. Google for one of these things. Mine is a "TopSider Model 5060".Report it
