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


Review

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!


Favorite Features

Styling, size, dual power seats, versatility, ride, stability, safety, brakes, smooth engine. My car has 190,000 miles on it and is still "tight" and drives better then anything with this much mileage should.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders, better HVAC system controls/modulation, more reliable switches and electronics. Get them while they last, they are cheap used, just get one that has been maintained! Great second car for sure

1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300CE 2dr Coupe


Review

I've always had good experiences with MB's, and so far so good. High mileage car (192k) in perfect shape - some minor electrical issues (to be expected) but overall I love it. Styling is still fresh, and the twin- cam revs freely to 7000rpms making spirited driving a ball. Rear seat is worthless unless you're an infant, but I'm 6'4" and very comfy up front. Pillarless design is *great*.


Favorite Features

Twin-cam 24v motor makes good power, and overall fit and finish is second to none.


Suggested Improvements

Why didn't they do tilt wheels? Factory Becker radio is awful.

1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300E 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased my 1992 300E used with 120,000 miles. If you can not personally perform major mechanical work on this car, be prepared to pay massive repair bills. Also be prepared to love this car with all your heart. It is a smooth riding, classy, wonderful automobile. You will treat her like a dysfunctional child who grows up and needs all kinds of financial support. Because it's your kid, you'll pay the money because you will fall in love with the car. I have put over $10k restoring the car and it doesn't bother me a bit because nothing drives like it/looks like it/runs like it. You can't kill it but you will spend $$$$$ keeping her going. For me...that's okay....for now.


Favorite Features

Incredibly smooth ride. Tight steering and handling. Quite interior. Excellent curb appeal. She's a classy old princess...to be sure.


Suggested Improvements

Be sure to put Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S 205/60R15 on your 15 inch rims. The best tire I've ever driven on this car. The car performs better if she's driven/driven/driven. And don't worry about a few oil drops on the garage floor...it's par for the course.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

I love the single arm windshiepd wiper. In rain most water channels over the roof. The engine and transmission are a marvel. This car's visibility is excellent. The ride and bump handling are great. The braking is also very good.


Suggested Improvements

The front seat could be more comfortable and have more headroom.
