What a Mistake!!!!!

2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4dr Sedan
Review
After being with Lexus for 7 years, I wanted to try something different. I purchased a well-serviced E430 Sport, with 48K miles. Other than the minor issues, the ABS went out at 52K (common problem). At 58K, I thought I needed of a new transmission, but it turned out that I had to replace the transmission mounts, driveshaft joint, and a transmission sensor. For the 60K mile service, the car needed engine mounts and a power steering rack on top of the routine service. The result: No warranty = $4200 out of pocket. Right now, at 70K miles, the car is in for a rear main seal and A/C compressor replacement.
Favorite Features
Interior design, sound, the tri star, and the fact that I will be taking delivery of my L Sportline GS430 in two weeks.
Suggested Improvements
Build quality, reliability, seats are too hard, V8 needs more power. It is a shame that Mercedes builds a car like this.
