1991 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Coupe 300CE 2dr Coupe


Review

It's a beautiful vehicle to look at and to drive. MBZ doesn't make 'em like this anymore, or so everyone says. This model year got the new DOHC 3.0L engine, so not much more quick but very fast. Mine is black on black, not my favorite colors, but distinctive. It had 94K on it; I sorted out a few things, put some new injectors into it and it runs great. Am looking for wagon equivalent now just to haul stuff around.


Favorite Features

Style, build, quality, materials, pillarless design, great leather


Suggested Improvements

As would be expected, certain aspects have been improved in succeeding models (fuel efficiency, e.g.) but design and build quality now lacking.

Review

I have owned my 300CE for 2 months, but I love it already. Excellent handling for a heavy car, good acceleration. I had NO2 Michelins installed, so the ride is superior, but the AC/Heating starts up slowly. Fuel economy is compromised, providing an inferior 14-18 mpg. Fun to drive, has a lot of character, turns heads. Not a car you see every day. Dash - limited in controls. Love leather, very styish interior. The exterior is beautiful and distinguished, paint looks brand new. Long lasting, mine has 115K, will run to at least 350K. No rattles ever, quiet and insulated. No mechanical failures in its whole life. Way cheap, a good one attainable for <5K


Favorite Features

Great character, elegant styling, comfortable, fun to drive. Get compliments and even buy offers. Very reliable. Love getting into it, feels like aristocracy. Back seats more comfortable than front! Huge boot/trunk Road trips are easy, city runs too. Love my colours - Navy/Tan


Suggested Improvements

Hate to end on a bad note, but I could use more power, shifts are minutely jerky (Automatic), and gas mileage suffers. Big ca, can be hard to park/drive if you don't know what you're doing
