Just a general question for the group.....We bought a 2000 E 320 4
matic for my wife to replace a 12 year old Audi 90Q which was a
wonderful car.....My wife was not impressed with the A6....for some
reason...but I didnt argue...its her car.
We got a pretty cherry E320, mostly as she liked the way it drove and
you see zillions of them around here...this one came from Mercedes
Lease. She wanted 4wd ..this one was available...bada bing..
Now the question..this thing has been in the shop 4 times for
problems..its only got 35000 miles on it..but there has been steering
noise...rattles, other problems that I would call nitpicks..but Im
starting to get that feeling that this car is going to have problems.
The Audi was a tank...had the original clutch at 143,000 miles...but
never dissapointed us or left her stranded. I am meticulous about
maintenance, oil change, fluid change, brakes.....etc.
Been there done that with cars...researched it pretty good..its
starmarked..and the dealer has been very good about fixing and
Is there some sort of quality problem that has cropped up lately? I
had 3 of my work colleagues swear by the Mercedes...we keep cars a
long time...or am I being a little paranoid?
