Exceptional car except...
By overclocked on
2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Sedan
I love this car especially since it
consistently gets between 29 and 30
mpg at highway speeds of 75 with the
A/C on. One complaint I have is the
extensive use of cheap plastic. The
plastic vanity mirror fell off of the
plastic sun visor in the first year.
The plastic center console latch
stopped working this month. I also get
mysterious electronic malfunctions
periodically (3 - 4 times per year)
for the ABS and BAS. The malfunctions
seem to clear themselves up without
having to visit the dealer. And last
but not least, the A/C just stopped
working. An unusual amout of problems
for an otherwise outstanding car.
Gas mileage, quality, (except the
plastic used on the interior)brakes,
and the style of the vehicle..
get rid of that cheap plastic used on
the interior. I used to own a 1983
300DT turbodiesel and even though it
used some plastic, I never had the
problems I'm having with this flimsy
stuff. That car ran forever.
