Best-made car I've ever owned

2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4dr Sedan


I bought my E430 Sport used after owning several VWs, since I have all but given up on American cars from the likes of GM, Ford, and Dodge. I really liked the German-made VWs, so I felt comfortable buying another German car, and Mercedes is a very prestigious brand. Let me just say that I have not been disappointed at all! My E430 purrs like a mountain lion, and is rock solid at speed. The car really comes alive at speeds above 90 mph. I love getting on an open stretch of road and opening it up around 80-85 mph. The rush from there on up to the top speed is exhilirating! Fuel mileage has also been a pleasant surprise. Fuel economy has averaged around 25 mpg with 50/50 highway-city driving.

Best Features

Smooth but powerful V8. Excellent mileage for a car of this size and performance. Whisper-quiet ride on almost any type of road surface. Trunk fully opens automatically when you hit the trunk button; no need to hit the button and then lift the trunk lid yourself.

Worst Features

Cupholder is a little flimsy when holding a larger than average cup/glass.
