300 te now a dinosour

Vehicle: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300TE 4dr Wagon

These wagons have always been among the most handsome cars on the road. For a 1992 model, they were generously equipped and the 92's were the first with standard dual airbags. Compared to newer cars I have owned, the transmission is slow to respond and jerks. The A/C system temp is very hard to modulate, either full on or too low. As these cars age common problems are: Cruise control/power windows/mirrors, central lcoking, valve cover gaskets prone to leaking, rear air suspensions fail eventually, cooling system fails eventually as well. All these repairs are pricy but once fixed, won't happen again for the life of the car. Bargain used but get one that was pampered!

Beautiful, efficient design

Vehicle: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300TE 4dr Wagon

The 88-92 Mercedes 300 series is a nice meeting point. The design is efficient, elegant and not too complex. The newer models have more stuff that really is not necessary. These years have all that you need for a luxury ride and are still rooted in the old Mercedes tradition of being well overbuilt. The wagon in particular is the best deal because it has the biggest engine, suspension and brakes standard. Also, the long wheelbase gives a big car ride. The 103 engine is turbine like, exremely reliable, and revs nicely for surprising performance. The transmission gives very positive high RPM shifts while remaining very smooth a low speeds. It's also not too big or too small abd u-turns well.




Mixed bag, but i still

Vehicle: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300TE 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD

Great car to drive. Handles just like a Mercedes ought to: goes right where it is pointed and takes any road surface in stride. Loves bad roads. Bit shy on power, tho, especially at low RPMs and at elevation (I live at 5000 feet). I've had a few problems: 4- Matic transfer case replaced twice, broken front spring, quite a few computer glitches and injector system problems, cruise control failed. Very high quality interior and body. Tires don't wear very well; 30,000 miles max on Michelin Pilots, usually less.

Great car

Vehicle: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300TE 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD

One of the best road cars I have ever driven. Quiet, peppy (for a diesel) and a fun car to drive. Spent 33 hours in one continious trip and still comfortable. If your interested in one, make sure you find one with a factory replaced engine or one with the piston rods replaced with the updated ones.




Power & safety

I have loved my Benz. Yes, the 4-matic is sensitive and requires maintenance and a few repairs, but this car has POWER and you really feel SAFE, which is important when I carry my precious cargo(5 yr old child)! I installed a K & N air filter a few years ago which increased the MPG to AVG. 21-22! Not bad for a car of this size and year... I also hear the 1998 E320 is a great wagon...

Great car. Solid, safe, well designed. Only thing less than perfect is the MB air conditioning system. It's never quite the right temp... Repair can get extensive and expensive, but are very infrequent. Averages out to be reasonable car to own.
