This car has many standard features for a 2001, some rather subtle, that some brand new cars don't have. It has supreme traction in the snow and rain when fitted with proper tires. This E-class rides smooth as glass around town, has seating for 5, and can also easily carry 3 golfers (late for a tee time) 128 mph down the highway. There's even a button to flip the rear headrests down to increase visibility while backing up. I could go on forever, but long story short, the 2001 Mercedes-Benz E430 4matic is a keeper.
Simply put this car has power and
handle in the worst weather condition!
It's almost unreal how well it got
through snow, rain, etc in the Northeast
(Boston). It also carries the legend of
the three pointed star ( great ride,
comfort, dependability,room,etc ). I'm
glad I didn't go the ML route and the G
wagon just isn't my cup of tea. The
e430 4matic is all the 4 wheel drive I
need. My family loves it. I highly
reccomend the Starmark warranty because
you will want to keep this one for a
long time. The A6 4.2 or older A8 AUDI
is not even close to this one. If you
need a awd sedan you'll now what I'm
The Power, handling, heated seats,
comfort, and overall ride.
CD player in the trunk is just not
practical. No one buys this car for the
fuel economy but any improvement not
compromising the power would be ok.
