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

1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Sedan 300E 2.8 4dr Sedan


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]).

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.
