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


Review

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.


Best Features

Handling, fit and finish.


Worst Features

Cup holders (of course) and computer glitches.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Diesel, Quiet, beautiful ride. 30 MPG and 28 gal. tank gives you about 800 mile legs. Nice ride, 12-14 hour trips are a walk around the block

Review

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...


Best Features

Leather Seats, Cargo Net, Cargo Cover, Adjustable seats, Sunroof, 4-Matic system that kicks in when needed!


Worst Features

CUPHOLDERS! I believe they have improved the 4-matic system sensitivity and upkeep issues...

Review

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.


Best Features

Great ride both in town and on highway, very comfortable.


Worst Features

AC system controls.

Review

Vehicle I purchased for $6500 has
144,000 miles on it . Always
garaged, almost no visable wear
inside or out. I knew mechanical
items were needed and now fixed
which were
1. brakes($500.),
2. front CV Joints ($500. re-built, after
market-non-dealer),
3.general servicing of all fluids and
filters.

I turned off the 4WD function as new
4matic distribution valve is $2,000.

Now a great car for $7,500. total less
tax and license. New version of
same wagon is $44,000. !


Best Features

Hi-mileage luxury car for under $7500. can be a bargain for fixer- uppers, if carefully picked. I purchased factory CD ROM with all service manuals for $125.00 and subscribed to ALLDATA to receive all technical service bulletins to help identify vehicle repairs


Worst Features

I have another Mercedes station wagon, a 1979 300TD with over 500,00 miles on it, which has been incredibly reliable and long-running. No engine or transmission repairs yet, only brakes and usual small repairs.
