1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E420 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had this car for 4 years and this is the best car I have owned. No problems,just regular maintenance and oil change. It is very fast and classy. This is what the Benz should look like. The newer E-class is ugly and suffers poor reliability - not a true Benz! Ask any Benz mechanic which is the most reliable model ever built and he will tell you the same thing. A Class of its own!


Best Features

The classy exterior

Review

I have owned my E420 for 1.5 years now, and love it. I previously owned 2 BMWs, and consider the build quality of the Mercedes to be superior. No squeaks or rattles on a 10 years old car! The engine is turbine-smooth, the suspension is silky, and fuel economy is better than many V6s. This is a car that I could see myself driving for another 100,000 miles.


Best Features

Incredible engine - above 3000 rpm it sounds like a race car (but not too loud, as the car drives very quietly). Super high quality interior materials - the interior looks beand new at 10 years old. Not a lot of gadgets to clutter the car (or break - important when you buy an older car).


Worst Features

The only improvements I could offer would be a slightly tighter suspension, but the stock suspension is built for luxury, not sportiness. A slightly higher final drive ratio would make the car even quicker, but fuel economy would suffer.

Review

Amazing car. Gifted with a elegant yet aggressive V8 engine, this highway warrior floats down the road with ease. With proper car and maintence this car runs forever and is built like a tank. The styling is some what conservative but the interior and trunk are large, as with every merecedes. I've driven this car primary for highway travel were this flashy V8 amazingly exhibits better gas mileage than my V6 300E! It's a breeze through traffic and BLAST on the open road. Looking for some muscle but need to be comfortable driving with bussiness attire... this is your car.


Best Features

Heart pounding V8 ... spins thwe tires with ease ... Large european edition headlamps ... clean styling ... for a powerful V8 this car has execellent mileage so long as it is coupled with conservative driving


Worst Features

More aggresive suspension. Cup holders and cabin storage. Bigger wheels. Redesigned seats.

Review

My love for this car has had its moments. There is no ride like a solid benz. The acceleration and tranny is smooth and the motor is more than adequate to have a little fun. Super quiet ride and hard to believe it gets more than 22 mpg. The downside is it is over engineered. I spent a great deal of time and money combating the dummy lights. As I have 155k miles on my 420, these cars will run forever but be prepared to pay for it after 120k miles.


Best Features

Acceleration, dual auto down windows, seats, handling and tank like feel in the cabin.


Worst Features

Better cup holders, tilt wheel and de sensitize the check engine light. $60 every time it trips to read codes and usually 2 hours labor to tack down hiccup.

Review

Around 115k miles my 'check engine' and 'ARS' dummy lights came on, costing me aboiut $2k in repairs. Other than this recent problems, the car handles great and has acceptable acceleration qualities.


Best Features

Acceleration and handling.


Worst Features

No cup holders, and an occasional problem with the tail lights always going out.
