What a Mistake!!!!!
By Rick Groughlin on


2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4dr Sedan


After being with Lexus for 7 years,
I wanted to try something different. I
purchased a well-serviced E430 Sport,
with 48K miles. Other than the minor
issues, the ABS went out at 52K (common
problem). At 58K, I thought I needed of
a new transmission, but it turned out
that I had to replace the transmission
mounts, driveshaft joint, and a
transmission sensor. For the 60K mile
service, the car needed engine mounts
and a power steering rack on top of the
routine service. The result: No
warranty = $4200 out of pocket. Right
now, at 70K miles, the car is in for a
rear main seal and A/C compressor

Best Features

Interior design, sound, the tri star, and the fact that I will be taking delivery of my L Sportline GS430 in two weeks.

Worst Features

Build quality, reliability, seats are too hard, V8 needs more power. It is a shame that Mercedes builds a car like this.
