1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD
Chose this over Lexus, BMW, and Audi.
I live in the Rocky Mountains and get
a good amount of snow. I've always
been partial to Audi (Quattro), but
thought I would give the 4-Matic a
try. Not a single complaint with the
drive. Couldn't find a suitable BMW
with AWD and a quiet ride. The bigger
Lexus' were only available in RWD and
still felt too Japanese. I've had 23
vehicles, including all the luxury
brands, in the last 12 years and this
is my favorite.
All the creature comforts. Never cared
for Bose, but this sound system is
nice. Never felt safer in a vehicle.
I realize that driving is a serious
task and one should never participate
in dashboard dining, but for American
versions, lose the crappy center
console contraption and include a cup
holder big enough for a Slurpee.
