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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

It would be nice to have more power.

Review

A great car for snow country use. Love the ability to bypass chain installers. Downside is the lower fuel mileage caused by the 4matic system.
