1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E420 4.2 liter from North America
A solid, well built, powerful machine
I have had very good experiences with this E 420 1994 Sedan. I have driven back and forth from New York to Florida 18 times. I have had to change the mass air flow meter, O2-sensor, cam shaft position sensor and fan clutch. I sincerely believe for the the amount of driving I have done with this vehicle, the above repairs, I thought were reasonable. Cost $2,000.00. This machine has 184,000 miles on the clock.
This car performs like a rocket.
Seats, when properly adjusted, are very comfortable both for long and short distance driving.
Smooth ride. Quiet. Cruising at 120 mph, you are in the Concorde.
Handles very well when cornering.
28 miles to the gallon in cruise control at 80 miles per hour.
0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds.
This engine is a monster.
Brakes are soft and reliable/stops on a dime.
Please note, a car is like a good woman; take care of her and she will never fail you.
Change your oil every 3 months regardless.
Tune up once per year, and use platinum tip plugs.
Replace your ignition wires every 60,000 miles.
Change your transmission oil as well as your coolant every time you tune up your car..
Change the gas filter too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
