1998 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4dr Sedan


Plain jane exterior hides an exceptionally well crafted and highly reliable machine. Quick tracking, rapid acceleration, sure grip lay beneath a church choir skin. Lacks the flare of its sizzling sisters and brothers; but, delivers the message of a final destination worth visiting. Currently has 125,000; acts like the day it was born. Wolf in geeks clothing, including the pocket protector.

Best Features

1. Bose sound system 2. Instant acceleration 3. Comfortable seating 4. HP to weight ratio (same HP and price as STS; but, better performance, top end, and speed plus 600lbs less

Worst Features

1. Dumb down the technology 2. Manual fails to reveal all electronic and mechanical features 3. Make it more owner-repair friendly
