1998 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

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.


Best Features

The exterior design, the way it drives in the snow and on dry pavement. All the features and amenities (Xenon lights, sun roof, rear sun shade, stability control, tilt/telescope wheel with memory, headlight illumination after parking, 5-speed automatic, overall very solid car.


Worst Features

Plastic trims are very frail. My rear view mirror cracked in two places, wood trim craked in two places, passenger airbag cracked. Electronic knobs on the radio stinkss (goes louder when turning it down) and some switchez like the power seat adjustment switches kinda messed up. Parts are expensive.

Review

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.


Best Features

Minimal external noise - and just a great drive. Moon roof is a nice feature on a spring day.


Worst Features

bulbs seem to blow alot. Cup holder.
