Like Mercedes, But Reliability's Poor
By LTB on
Vehicle1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300E 2.8 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis 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 FeaturesRide, drive, seats, solid feel, and vehicle safety.
Worst FeaturesMercedes 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]).
