1998 Mercedes-Benz E320 4MATIC Reviews
My 4Matic wagon is a great car with almost 200K miles on it. While I have had some minor repair work on the car and the repairs are very expensive, I knew that going into buying a Mercedes and an old car. I am surprised by how many negative things I have seen about these cars and yet my experience has so far been very good.
Especially love the 4Matic: during heavy rains on the interstate, the car feels like it is on rails--a very nice change from my old Volvo 740 Turbo.
