1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4dr Sedan

Review

This car is an amazing piece of machinery and is the last year of the reliable Mercedes. This car having a 4.3 liter V8 just made the car a sleeper, especially considering that it had no badging anywhere. The transmission shifts almost seemlessly. It has great power and good handling, but this particular car stood out from the pack because of the real Brabus exhaust, and the replica Brabus 19" wheels. The car sounds fantastic and it isn't overly loud. The interior of this car doesn't have the flare of Mercedes of old, but it's simple and functional, and that's all you should need. The exterior is much like the interior, simple but nice to look at, especially in the white color mine was in.

Favorite Features

The power is really suprising, especially considering it's a 4.3 liter SOHC. The ride is great, even though it was lowered. The Bose sound system sounds great in this car, nice bass and just a good balance. The gas mileage is great for a V8; I was getting 21mpg with mixed driving.

Suggested Improvements

The interior could be more exciting to look at, especially the gauge cluster. The trunk could be a lot bigger considering the size of the car.
