Paramount MB 4matic by SWFLGUY on 04/22/2009. Trim: 2002 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Okay, a Benz is not your father's American cruiser. :) Yep, the seat may seem "hard", but just wait until you have taken a long trip in the car and see how you feel after the trip vs. the typical "cushy" ride from US cars. I absolutely love mine. With the V8 it will get up and go and do it in a refined and confident manner. With the 4matic the snow and harsh winters here in Wisconsin are no problem at all for the car. It goes when the 4X4's are stymied.
Cons: Okay, some of the controls are a bit awkward and confusing at first, other than that, it's all good.
Overall review: After over 68K trouble free miles, I remain impressed with the car and it still turns heads. I know that it may not be for everyone, but if you want a secure, trouble free car that will always get you where you need to go, and want to arrive in comfort and style, this is your ride. There are so many pluses for the car, the Bose music system is definitely a huge plus. Give it a drive, and you may find that it fits you just right. It is a fun, confident, spirited drive!

The E 430 Special Edition by Lifee , Oakland, CA on 12/12/2003. Trim: 2002 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Slow acceleration, but the response is great. The ride is quiet and smooth. It handles with ease. I have a 4 year bumper to bumper warranty. Tele Aide service is great you are never alone or lost. The intergraded telephone hands free system is something I will never go without.
Cons: The windshield liquid tank had a leak which was repaired at no cost to me. You need to slam the doors twice for closure. Tight seating for the driver. Should have CD changer in the dash like the Audi TT. Heated seats should be standard with the E 430 SE. All telephone calls are on speaker phone.
Overall review: I would buy this car again. It is a good solid car. The car is safe.
