My wife and I wanted a car that was
safe, fun to drive, and that would last
a very long time with minimal
maintenance. This car is awesome! 1998
E430 Sport w/ESP and many great
options. It is the 210W Chassis (95-99
model years?), one of the best series
of M-B ever. Two MB mechanic friend
both directed me to this year and model.
Electronic Slip Protection (traction
control), heated seats, auto w/wipers,
engine power, comfort(interior),
exterior(of course!), stereo, climate
control.....everything is better than
any other car that we've owned.
Brake pads and tires wear quickly
(25,000-40,000 miles is excellent!)
That's about it. Flexible service
schedule means annual oil changes and
very few things to do on this car.
