  • What's New for 1998

    All-wheel drive comes to the Mercedes' E-Class lineup via the E320 sedan and all-new E320 wagon. Like the rest of Mercedes' model lineup, E-Class cars formerly powered by an inline-six engine now receive a more fuel-efficient V6 unit that is also supposed to improve the cars' low-end response. The 1998 E-Class cars receive the benefit of BabySmart airbags which are able to detect the presence of a Mercedes' car seat in the front passenger seat and disable the front passenger airbag. BrakeAssist is also a new feature, which aids drivers' stopping distance in a panic-stop situation.

Not that bad for a

Okay, I read a lot of complaints about this car, but it's not really that bad if you take care of it. Maintenance costs are fairly high if you don't know how to do simple maintenance yourself. It's not only the labor that is expensive if you have to bring it in, it's also the parts. The best fuel economy I've gotten on this tank is 27mpg driving from Minneapolis to Chicago in the summer. If you're trying to be frugal, don't buy this car. Otherwise, I pray every day that nothing breaks on it. Meanwhile, I really enjoy driving this E320 4matic. Just take good care of it, do all the maintenance in advance and it'll run fine.




Love this car...

Love the car, hate the repairs. When they hit they're expensive--I'm looking at $2,272 repair for AC (in Texas a must have) and a steering gear replacement --the part alone is $1,597 labor only $191. Ouch. The car is a fun and tight drive never been stranded anywhere driving long commutes daily.
