Too Costly To Maintain — Good performing car when it is working; but this car has been a nightmare since 5/08-Over $18,000 in repairs spent as of 12/10, yes I am not kidding; I must have had a louse screw to complete the repairs; for example; in 6/08-r/r-antenna mast, emission parts, brakes, lub and oil at a cost of $2,661.25 (I think I got ripped off a little bit); 8/08-Throttle Actuator, PCV Hose, Shift Linkage Bushing, Distributor Caps @ $1,629.74; 9/08-Engine Mounts @ $660.67; 10/08-r/r Radiator, fan blade, used fan clutch (never buy a used part) $1,423.72; 6/09-Oil Pan Gasket, Valve Cover Gasket, Bosch Plug wire/Set, Power Steering Pump rebuilt @ $2,046.34; 9/09-r/r-Control Arm, Shock Absorbers, OEM-Link Arm, Suspension-Rear Left @ $911; 9/09-Repair Radio Volume Knob (yes they all go out in the orginal radio and I actually found someone to fix it) @ $60; 2/10-r/r camshaft position sensor, r/r-crankshaft position sensor; r/r distributor cap; r/r ignition coil, fuel injector; r/r-vacuum hoses valve cover to intake manifold for parts and labor @ $2,245.08, milage at this time was only 96,879.; 3/10-r/r antenna assembly motor @ $509.98; 5/10-replaced vaccum hose on transmission including trans service @ $155.48; 7/10-replace oil pan and oil sender unit plus lube and oil @ $553.36; 8/10-Replace Wiring Harness (all of the Mercedes need this one to be replace for this year and a few other years) @ $437.55; 11/10-Drive Belt Replaced, Front Pads Replaced, again power steering pump needed repair (should have bought a new one, but under warranty) @ $762.36; 12/10-Transmission currently being rebuilt approx. $1,400 to $1,600; Do not buy a used E420; this car has always been taken care of.

My Fine German Motorcar — I have wanted a W124 chassis E Class since I was a teenager. When I saw the brilliant, emerald green E320, I had to have it. Although I never drive in snow, with good tires it handles ok in the rain and well on dry pavement. My friend's '94 530i had less body roll, but my Benz kept up with him on country, mountain roads. The front seats offer fantastic support ; I always feel relaxed and fresh after long trips. It's smooth as glass on the highway. Although it's never left me stranded, I have had to put a lot of preventative maintenance into it and that's not cheap. Great stock stereo with CD changer. When I drive my "boaty" Buick Park Avenue, I am cruising; when I am out in my Mercedes Benz, like a gentleman, I am motoring.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Handling & Performance

Cons

Expensive To Maintain

E420 1995 Mercedes — Performance & handling is excellent; On the freeway I get 25 miles to the gallon; Problem is cost of ownership; The parts are very expensive, emission parts such as the Throtle Actuator is $1,200 new that does not include the cost of labor; so you need to shop on the internet for one that is rebuilt or used and they all go out in this model. The radiators go out on this car and again the fan clutch is an expensive item. They never made replacement ignition wire sets for this model, do not take it to a dealer the wiring alone at the dealer is about $700 not including labor and plugs; get the after market wiring for about $300(Bosch); Break jobs are very expensive on this model; electrical issues are fairly common such as the attenna mast or relay switch in the dash along with fuses. As the car gets older you need to adjust the shift linkage (bushing). If you have a big pocket book to keep the car up this car is great otherwise look for something else.

Very Solid Beautiful Convertible - Safest On The Road — I have now owned two of these Mercedes E 320 Convertibles - best Convertible I know of - solid, built like a tank, beautiful styling and durability. The only weak point I know of is the engine wiring harness - mine had to be replaced after 93,000 miles and this part was not what i expect from Mercedes quality - otherwise I think any newer model like the CLK can't touch the E 320

How Quickly It Becomes One Of Your Proze Posessions And The Feeling You Cant Live Without It. — This car floats on the interstate at 70mph/ 2500RPM like you're flying. Parallel park it and watch people as they walk by: as many looks as any car in front or behind. Do not drive this car (especially a red x tan one) if you cant live with attention. Plenty of power and 20-plus MPG. Few cars have this much panache at 15-plus years. Imagine when it's 30. This is what $70,000 bought in 1995. Think Elizabeth Taylor at 45.

Pros

Nice car.  Fast.  Most reliable car I've ever had.

Cons

Too much jelly, not enough road feel.

Luxury Sedan. — I got this car so I would have something other than a motorcycle. It was too much plush for me. Handled just like one would expect. Had a strange gas pedal. Went fast, was ultra reliable.

Very Comfortable But Not Overly Flashy — Very solid car,handles very nicely and is quite comfortable. The thing is so big it's sort of like driving a boat.

Pros

Looks.  Comfort. Low maintenance.  Cheap parts (if u know where to go).

Cons

Needs a powerful engine, 3.2 litre should be minimum.

Smooth Mercedes — I had the 2.2 litre engine. Slower than a 1.8 liter Toyota Corolla. Solid car. Extremely reliable engine. Apart from the slow-ass engine, the car was perfect.
