Severely disappointed
By Carlos on


1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E420 4dr Sedan


Bought this car used from the original owner in 2002, with only 16,000 miles on it, and thought "what could go wrong with such low mileage". Plus my intention was to only drive this car to and from work, which averages about 8,000 miles/year. Well, first the electrical wires to the driver's side front headlights kept "coming lose", which cost $400.00 to fix. Then the A/C went out, along with oil leakage and transmission problems, which totaled to $5,000.00. I wish I have stayed with buying Toyota or Subaru, which are far more reliable.

Best Features

Interior luxury, Bose sound system, powerful V-8

Worst Features

Better suspension, more reliable wiring and A/C
