Good Car - Could Use Some Improvements
By JHas on


2002 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Had car for just under 2
years and 27000 miles.
Love power/acceleration and AWD system
(with Blizzak snow tires, car will go
anywhere in any weather). No
mechanical problems to date. Car is
relatively anoymous and yet it commands
a certain respect.
Need improvement: 1. Front seats - in
order to get lumbar support, had to
order a special seat; worst driver's
seat that I have ever experienced (and
have had cars from many manufacturers
including, Jaguar, Nissan, Saab,
Mitubishi, VW) 2. Not having a
separate dash insert to play a CD is
ridiculous in a car costing this much

Best Features

Accelerates and handles brillantly. Not quite as nimble as my Nissan 300ZX, but far better than my Jag XJ8. Ability to handle any weather; superb brakes - well modulated, good feel and short stops; well built; quiet at speed; very good service(not quite up to Nissan and Saab)

Worst Features

1. Better front seats are a must! 2. Ability to fold down rear seat back to extend luggage space 3. Provide seat heaters that stay on 4. Provide both in-dash cassette and single feed CD. 5. Better gas milage would be nice, but I am getting what I expected - so I can't really complain.
