2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

My 2000 E-430 4-matic is a piece of
garabage. It has only 7,500 mi. Every
6 months it goes in for some major
repair.I've had the radidiator, fuel
tank, entire instrument cluster and
major AC components replaced and
repeated problems with the steering
column, among others.
Mercedes says "that is why they
have warranties". When I mention my
warrranty is about up, they tell me
don't worry everything is fixed. I
have zero confidence in that statement.
Unfortunately, I purchased the car.
When I inquired about some type of
accomodation on a trade in, they
refused. I guess they no longer build
a decent car nor care about customer
satisfaction.

Review

This has been the worst vehicle
for warranty repairs.

I have had both outside mirrors replaced, one
for a crack that appeared during the first
Wisconsin winter and the second for a bad
motor. I have had a water pump, a mass air
flow sensor, an oxygen sensor, a fuel tank
sensor, a window motor, a radiator bracket,
both front end tie rods, the driver's seat
leather cover replaced, and finally the
passenger side visor (the automatic vanity
mirror switch failed) replaced.


Best Features

The ESP - electronic stability program


Worst Features

Review

This is a great car for the money. I
purchased used with 7k miles and have
driven for 71,00 miles with minimal
repairs. All highway but hard. I push
through corners and speed limit and it
never lets me down in performance or
response. When I need to settle down
and act my age it drives like a family
sedan.Repairs have been brake pads@30k,
rotors@40k and one odd repair at 65k
fuel sensor $600.


Best Features

4Wheel drive (I call it cat traction)


Worst Features

coffee holder stinks and CD location.
