Before having a baby, we were looking at several cars, but this car caught my attention. Very solid by its build. Safe and with an engine that could whip some other E's and other models having a 3.2 ltr 24valve inline 6 . I think this is the best engine in its era Mercedes ever built. Just keep up with the regular service intervals and you're OK. Very solid and very safe. So far I had the car since '95 until today, and it's still running strong and solid!
Engine. Comfort, safety, and very solid. Looking at the car itself tells it all. You won't find a lot of these cars on the road.
I owned a 1993 300TE for three years and really enjoyed the vehicle. Functional, comfortable, safe and decent mileage for such a large rig. Look for the safety net option when shopping for used models. Cost was $1100 when new and it is a great additional safety feature.
Seats 8, safe, quiet, good mileage and really comfortable on long drives.
This is one of Mercedes finest works.
The 1993 Mercedes Benz 300TE 4 Matic.
It comes with a 3.0 liter 217
horsepower V6 engine. Mine features
Leather, Sunroof, 3rd row, cell phone,
power seats and much more. The
acceleration is very good. I calculated
that going to 60 took 8.2 seconds. (I
was manually shifting with
the "2,3,D.") Another feature is the
roomy truck and the fold down 3rd row
seat which is very convienent.
Leather seats are very comfy
Sunroof is fairly large
3rd row seat is very handy
Fold down 2nd row is great to use
I think that it should have a computer
that tells you not only the temperature
and the time but your average miles per
gallon, range, and things like that, as
featured in my 1987 BMW 325i.
