1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD


I know my MB's trust me on this. The 96-99 E class is by far the best years of the E class. DO NOT buy a 2000 or newer. I have 215k on mine. Paint is starting to fade a bit, a little rattle in the Cat Conv other than that, it drives and runs like new. Chrysler ruined the name from 2000 to like 2007 or roughly around there. They tried to infuse their technology into the E class at this time and failed miserably. A 2000 E class is a K car with a MB star on the hood. The 99 is heavy, solid, and feels German. It's a little underpowered, and don't buy a 4matic if you are worried about gas. If you value your family's safety, want to to stay out of trouble, and want to look cool, buy a 99

Best Features

AWD Jeep like in the snow seats, solid feel, brakes. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

Worst Features

Could use a little more low end torque, radio sucks, thats it though.

Hi, How do you know that the 2000 E320s were the first to lower in quality after Chrysler? I'm looking for a nice E320 and just want to be sure when ruling out a 2000 model. thanks
