The E430 debuted in 1998 as a for the similarly V-8 powered E420 of the chassis. As the 2 nd most powerful sedan after the E55 AMG, was introduced in 1999, it provides than enough power for and high-speed cruising while all the comforts typical of a Mercedes. I driven the car for more than months and am very satisfied its performance, comfort, and most reliability, despite its mileage 110,000 miles.

Performance: the introduction of the E55 AMG sedan in 1999, the was the most powerful W210 E-Class sedan in production. Its 4.3 V-8 engine cranks out 275 horsepower and 295 of torque over a plateau of RPM, giving it a 0-60 MPH of 6.2 seconds and a top speed well its electronically limited speed of 130 per hour. However, despite its credentials, it achieves EPA fuel ratings of 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway in its year or production. Thus, is no need to sacrifice fuel for high performance and vice-versa. Of actual fuel economy vary, but my average is just 25 MPG throughout my driving. However, in city driving, I got 16-18 Acceleration is rapid, and you feel it you floor the accelerator, as I did numerous The E430 flies once you on it, thanks to its broader, flatter curve than its replacement, the That results in ample power, whether on a country or on Germany’s Autobahn. Combined its 275 horsepower, the E430 makes for an highway cruiser, perfect for trips. If you plan on using car for substantial city driving, car is not for you as it gets awful fuel

in the city, particularly in stop-and-go

Handling: Although not as sporty in as its closest equivalent the BMW 5-Series, the is still very comfortable on roads. In addition, the car stops on a highlighting its excellent braking

Exterior and interior: Like all W210s, the E430 has been on the outside to attract a younger, progressive clientele, with a appearance than the W124 it The car is also significantly larger the W124 E420 it replaced, it a more luxurious appearance. In the front end has been redesigned, four headlights rather the two on earlier generations. In my opinion, the E430 is much more and solid-looking than the present also known as the W211. its all new appearance, it appears and feels as a Mercedes should be.

Being a car, the interior feels comfortable, and you won’t get tired after a long trip. is seating capacity to comfortably 5 adults, 2 in the front and 3 in the back. front seats are power-assisted, 10-way power seating the headrest) and three memory per front seat.

The also comes standard a Bose premium sound Although the E430 lacks a CD in the passenger compartment, there is a changer in the trunk. In addition, is a first-aid kit in the rear center which also has 2 cup holders. In the E430 has 6 cup holders, 2 in the rear armrest, 2 in the front center and another 2 in the glove box. Not to express up-and-down for all 4 windows, and side mirrors, in which the are located between the center

console and the transmission.

Pricing: The E430, which a sticker price of between and $54K when new, on the year, can be purchased for anywhere $10,000 for a 1998 and $25,000 for a depending on its mileage. Expect to pay more for the 4MATIC (4WD) regardless of year, and options further increase the price.

Mercedes-Benz cars have a for their excellent reliability, those made before the merger. Even after than 9 years and almost miles, the E430 does not when starting up or driving. Of you may want to purchase an extended plan on the E430 just in anything goes wrong, as the like any other Mercedes, is to service.

However, the is not subject to the EPA Gas-Guzzler tax. rates are also significantly than that of a typical Replacement tires, wipers, and parts are somewhat more than those for American or cars. Also, oil changes are expensive, as the engine takes 8.5 of synthetic oil. I personally use 1 0W40, which costs $6.50 per quart. Expect to pay at $70 for the oil and filter if you want to change the oil at least $80 to have it done at an garage, or at least $160 if the is performed at the dealership. However, to the Flexible Service System, the instrument panel will you when you need to have the oil which will typically

be in the region of every 6,000-12,000 Periodic servicing, such as although infrequent, will be without a warranty.

Overall verdict: Cheap and a muscle car in a business suit. also great on the highway, but gas in town. For less than the of an economy car, you can buy an E430 still looks like
