2002 Mercedes-Benz E430 Reviews
I've had my, 2000 E430 for almost 2 years & I'll never drive anything else. I Take it to the dealer once a year and that's it. I barely passed the 100,000 mark & yes it's true. the tranny is acting funny. Just take it in and have it worked on. I'm a firm believer if you drive a Mercedes, be prepared to fork it over and i do. This car literally saved our lives. We were driving in the pounding rain at night, my wife was talking to her daughter when all of a sudden the car started doing a 360 on the freeway, the rain. She started yelling about dying & I was waiting for the impact, that's when the car took over, all the stabilization systems kicked in and i couldn't do anything about it. The yellow diamond lit up as well as the other system. It shifted itself into Manual shifting and stopped on its own, Quickly. It then transferred control to me. When we got home she was full of rocks, mud and debris. I still gave her a big kiss. She saved our lives that night. Mercedes Benz, is the safest car on the road. I know now. So when it comes time to put money into her, I do it with a smile. because i know I'm investing in the safety of our lives.
