1991 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Wagon 300TE 4dr Wagon


Review

I bought mine 1 year ago and have put 20k on the car with no worries. It had 152k at time of purchase. This is my fifth older mbz and is my favorite one of them all.
Fun to drive, great reliability and the interior layout is practical.
I have seen the 3.0 liter inline six go 400k plus with just a top end rebuild.
Things to be aware of: head gasket and engine harness failure.
A small price to pay in overall upkeep, for a car that is safe, has classic lines and can handle high mileage with proper care.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Wagon 300TE 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

We bought this car with 147K on it. We
had it checked out and were told it
was in great shape. It came to us with
a failed transfer case leaking a qt of
hydraulic oil every 100 miles. The
repair was nearly $2,000 and the part
very difficult to come by. Now the
front and rear engine seals are
leaking and the engine has to come
out. That will be another $2,000+. The
water pump and alternator failed
within days of each other. There have
been numerous hard start problems.
This is all within 4 months. The car
is fun to drive but I don't trust it
to go more than a month without
needing some hideously expensive
repair.

Review

This car was purchased with 23K
miles in 97. I initially was shocked
with some of the repairs i.e., motor
mounts relaced again after 5K.
Electrical flaw in the hatch $600. The
radiator neck broke twice along with
the fan and polybelt. Then at 76K the
4matic went out which was the
biggest hit of $2300. Other than
those items the car is a workhorse. I
plan to keep it for another four years
then sell it and buy a 2000CL500.

I should be able to afford one by
then.


Best Features

I use a wheelchair and the cargo space is great for carrying items. When you are sitting in the drivers seat it feels like any other sedan and not a soccer mom.


Worst Features

It would be nice to have more power.

Review

This car looks great, holds everything,
is extremely comfortable and sturdy,
and is totally reliable. I bought it
with 96,000 miles on it and expect
years of trouble-free driving. It's fun
to drive too -- peppy and with a sporty
feel. I LOVE it and recommend it to
everyone.


Best Features

The cargo space! Plus, Mercedes' paint jobs are great. People always are shocked that it's a '91 -- it looks new.


Worst Features

I couldn't put a combination CD player/cassette tape deck in the dash, so I had a CD player installed. Otherwise, the car is perfect.

Review

This is my 4th Mercedes-Benz product
and it has been troble free. Never
has it stayed over night in a shop.
Maintance is more expensive than
domestics but the quality of the job
is far superior because of the
dealerships' high levels of quality
control. If the car needs new breaks
the dealer does it right the first
time, every time.


Best Features

Abiltiy to travel cost to cost without ever feeling tired, excellent ergonomics and orthopedically correct seats, and safety that rivals most new cars. You wont have that sea sick undulating feeling other "luxury" cars give you.


Worst Features

Bring this model back. The newer ('97 to present) E class wagons are built for much less than these tried and true cars were and it shows in reliability stats.
