Unbeleivable that this car can have
something go wrong every six months
like clock work. I drove my Lexus for
over 125000 miles with one repair (air)
In 84000 miles I have had to replace
both rear window motors, engine sensors
twice, air fan unit,and a oil seal--a
friend told me he carries oil in his
trunk. I won't make this mistake again.
Rides well, trunk is large and overall
fit and finish looks good.
The mechanical quality is just not
there. My mothers 98 Jag is even
better than this one.
1998 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E320 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD
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
Minimal external noise - and just a
great drive. Moon roof is a nice
feature on a spring day.
This has been a fantastic car. I'm
considering a new E320 or E500, but I
can't bring myself to sell this one. It
had a few small problems with bulbs
blowing out. The local Benz dealership
fixed the problem after several
visits. Fortunatley, it was covered
under warranty. The ride is exceptional
as is everything else about the E320. I
think I'll stay with the E class because
it is easy to get around in the city yet
still has a big car feel.
The heated seats are a must! The moon
roof is a great addition as is the NOAA
weather channel and the ASC.
I will opt for the CD player and the
navigation system this time.
