1998 Mercedes-Benz E320 Reviews
Absolutely love this care. It's quick, great fuel mileage and fun to drive.
*Note Canadian location (Zip codes will not stick on RepairPal for Canadian users). Purchased 2nd hand in 2002 from know owner with 80K. Good engine, replaced balljoints, struts, 2 tie rods, 2 brake jobs, 4 window lifts, blower motor, blower regulator and housing, 15 headlamp bulbs, 2 drive belts, 1 door hinge. FM radio does not work below 12 Celcius, Major rust problem on entire car, shock mount just broke off the mount assembly rendering it a financial write off. Car is rarely winter driven - located in non salt winter region. Profoundly dissapointed considering the car has been very well maintained and driven with care.
