1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E420 4dr Sedan


I turn heads and people can't believe
what you can get them for. However, my
gripe is that in six months, it has
been in to the dealership five times at
least. Starmark is great but beware
many things are not covered, I have
paid $1000 out of pocket already and
claimed $2000 more. And I also have
the popping seat frame on acceleration
etc. as another reviewer mentioned.(not
covered by starmark). This is truly a
love/hate relationship and my local
service dept. hasn't impressed me with
misdiagnoses only to be fixed at
another dealership. Hope you all won't
be as unlucky as me. In closing though
this car is a wonderful combination of
luxury and sport feel.

Best Features

Good power and handling. Truly one of the most classically beautiful cars on the road as its lines are superb. Plenty of room with very usable instrumentation. Has that heavy, solid feel yet is agile and fast.

Worst Features

Too many gadgets breaking down at same time at 80k miles(xenon headlamps, fans, a/c system, dash lighting, power seat switch, fuel light switch,hoses ruptured, etc.) everytime I accelerate and decelerate my seat pops in and out of its track, is that safe?
