1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Sedan 300SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had no problems with this car.
Other than the regular oil changes and
tuneups there is nothing else this car
needs. I could not be happier I love
my car.


Best Features

Where do I begin inside and out it is a classy looking car. But I guess its best feature is the way it handles. It feels as though you are driving on a cloud.


Worst Features

If buying this year check to ensure the Ac was fixed mercedes had some issue with this models AC units.

1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Sedan 300SE 4dr Sedan


Review

Extreamly well made and solid car. The
suspension soaks up every bump and the
double glazing helps to make it very
quite. Build quality in the cabin is
excellent - no squeaks or rattles
whatsoever.
Unfortunately I bought one that turned
out to have been unloved and it cost a
lot of money to put right. Head gasket
replaced, gearbox overhauled, water
pump and tappets replaced, brake disks
and drop-link arms on the suspension
replaced, CD autochanger replaced - the
list goes on and on. But I have now a
brillant car with all the major bits
fixed (I hope)! If you can get one that
has been serviced correctly then this
must be the best car in the world!


Best Features

Great suspension - soft on the bumps yet allows the car to handle the bends as if it were much smaller and lighter.


Worst Features

No air con in my car - this is a must! Make sure you also get leather and auto transmission for resale value.

Review

One of the finest marques produced.
Maintenance is high, which is the only
concern. If you're lucky enough to find
one that had all the major components
repaired, mileage should not be a
concern.The inline 6 cylinder design
should last for hundreds of thousands
of miles, providing you change the oil
at regulasr intervals. It's the other
maintenance concerns that can run up a
tidy bill. AC, transmission, etc. Other
than that. A fantastic automobile. The
ride is great, and the fit and finish
is second to none.


Best Features

The dash controls,ride, overall appearance.


Worst Features

None that I experienced

Review

This is my third Mercedes and all have
been unreliable and expensive to
repair. Nonetheless, I like the
ride/suspension, drive/steering, seats,
solid feel, and crash safety design of
Mercedes Benz. Problems on this car
have included failed fuel pump
commutator, leaking head gasket, failed
interior temperature sensor, failed
transmission (had it rebuilt), wheel
started siezing on suspension arm (had
it replaced), and other minor problems.
But, I would buy another [used]
Mercedes Benz (after checking consumer
rating sources for my particular model
of interest). My car has 131,000 miles.


Best Features

Ride, drive, seats, solid feel, and vehicle safety.


Worst Features

Mercedes Benz should try to achieve the reliability level of Lexus/Toyota (hope springs eternal). Free loaner cars should be provided at all dealers, even if car was not purchased at that dealer (especially considering the high service and repair costs [parts and labor]).

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


Review

After putting almost half a million
miles on it, it's still going strong.
If you ever needed a reliable car,
this is ultimate reliability. Although
minor problems do occur, other than
that, it's a bad horse which takes
beating. Poor mid-range torque but has
good high end torque. Changed to a
walnut sports steering wheel, added
K&N filter, sports muffler, 245/35 R18
wheels. Superb handling and a better
mileage. Drove a BMW 540i but my 300E
has better handling anytime. Awesome
grip.


Best Features

Handling. Definately handling! Plus grip, grip and more grip.


Worst Features

A better distributer cap and a more reliable power seat. Auto cruise improvement - not user friendly.
