The main problem with these older Mercedes is people who cannot afford to maintain them get them because of the cheap price. These cars can take allot of abuse and you will not see many cars from 80s and 90s still on the road. But everything requires up keep, even new cars.

After 200,000 trouble-free miles, my 300E was totaled in a 50 mph rear-end strike by a Chevy SUV. All four doors still open perfectly despite the car being crushed up to the rear window.As an engineer I understood the strength of this body, so I bought another 1993 300E 3.2 to drive for another 17 years. A wonderful solid car, albeit not flashy, just excellent.

Vehicle: 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300E 4dr Sedan

I purchased my 1993 Mercedes Benz 300E after doing a lot of research on this particular model. The W124 series came out top of the list with all owners for reliability, comfort and believe it it or not, low cost of ownership. Being 45 years old (me not the car) insurance was much less than i expected - a bonus! I have 218,000km's on the clock which appears to be nothing on these vehicles, which are still on the roads with much higher km's - some have over 1 million on them! amazing but true. They are popular in Europe as Taxis. This vehicle pioneered the motoring industry as you now know it. A great used car purchase for anyone looking for quality at reasonable cost. Drive & love

The 300e drives beautifully in town or on the interstate. It's extremely solid at speed. Repair costs can be frightfully high, though. In addition to the regularly scheduled maintenance, you should budget at least $1,200/year for ongoing repairs, as replacing even a minor part will easily set you back $500. I would still recommend the vehicle, but not to those who are looking for something maintenance-free.




Continuous engine repairs

I like driving the car. But... things continually keep breaking in the engine department. I spend about $2,500 per year paying to fix things that broke. E.g., last summer new throttle actuator, $2,000. The repair bills take the fun out of owning this car. I will never buy MBenz again.

Vehicle: 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300E 4dr Sedan

A nearly perfect car with a great engine, timeless exterior styling, and a high-quality interior. As this model year 300E was mis-badged, it is undervalued. 1994 and 1995 were badged as an E320 which is what this car should've been called. There is a big difference between 1986-1992 300E's and 1993-1995 300E (3.2) / E320's because of the engine difference and nobody seems to know that this one year has the new 3.2 liter engine. As a member of two Mercedes Benz Clubs, it is not unusual to find similar cars with 200,000 to 400,000 miles on them, and still look and drive like new.
