1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car, my first Mercedes, and while driving down the road, with the family, the front drivers side coil spring came flying out. This also caused the ball joint and the tie rod to give up the ghost. Asked Mercedes for help with the bill, 1700.00 and got a resounding NO!. Seems like this should be a recall, and or Mercedes would live up to the mechanical default without me having to hire a lawyer. Won't own another, I will but something that doesn't self destruct while I'm driving down the road.

Favorite Features

Has plenty of power.

Suggested Improvements

It's supposed to be the wolrds best engineered machine, I would beg to differ with that idea.
