Rolling Passion

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


Driving this automobile has been an absolute joy.
It hasn't always been smooth sailing.
Have had to replace a motor mount and alternator; booth covered under warranty.
Other than that it's been very reliable and has allowed me many enjoyable miles to reflect on what this car is really about.
It does everything well.
Sure a BMW 5-series will out handle this car but as a whole this rolling rocket is pure solid power wrapped in a much more elegant package.
While driving you can feel as though the engineers have spent many sleepless nights designing this car; sweating every detail. Overengineered and it shows.
Passion for their craft has inspired me. I Will have this car a very long time.

Best Features

Love the 8 cylinder power and sophistication. Love the unflappable chassis. Great built quality. Timeless design. Yes, the car is overengineered, and components will probabaly break but when they work, it's flawless. Love the single windshield wiper.
