1993 Mercedes-Benz 400-Class Sedan 400SEL 4dr Sedan


Review

I have to remind myself Iam driving because the ride is so smooth ,you can easily fall asleep behind the wheel.And is so quite it's like watching a silent movie when you roll up all the windows and turn the radio off, and I own a 93 400sel best ride of any car I ever rode in by far. I keep up on service like clock work which sometimes make you wish you had a Chevy . But if you never been on a Majic carpet ride you better go get a s-class now ,It's still turns heads and get thumbs up from people when I pass by them . The best car ever made ,that's my opion and by far the best ride unless you own a Majic carpet .

Review

One of the biggest, heaviest, safest, most comfortable cars ever made. Longer, heavier, more fuel capacity, etc than the next body style in 2000, the W140 body M-B's were, and still are, some of the best road cars ever made. If you drive long, fairly straight and for long distances, this is the car for you. On the highway I get 20-22 mpg, same as the highway MPG for the 2007 Toyota's, so how can you go wrong. This car will make you feel you should be riding in back, not driving it.


Favorite Features

Ultimate stability and road handling, Quiet; there is no road noise, no engine noise, no tire noise, nothing unless you turn on the radio or 6 CD changer.


Suggested Improvements

The 4.3 L in the 400 can be a bit light, if you want to push it, but the 500 and 600 really drink the gas, so it is up to you.

Review

I am the original owner of a black 93. I love almost everything about the vehicle. I have kept up with the maintenace and have never been dissappointed. The fit n finish are second to none. Mine still looks like it rolled off the show room. The only probs I have had are with the pass rear window not working/rolling up. Mercedes are also very expensive to maintain otherwise, I have yet to find another vehicle with the build quality besides the new ones. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone as they are pretty resonable at it's age.


Favorite Features

Timeless design and interior appointments. Dual pane glass pneumatic doors.


Suggested Improvements

More resonable service.

Review

I love this car! I was not comfortable buying such an old vehicle, however this car rides better than a cadillac and performs like a corvette. If you a lucky enough to get one at a good deal, do it.


Favorite Features

The buttons all over this car make the entire vehicle controllable by the driver. The seats are amazing at versatility. The last but not least is the suspension, I feel like Im in a limo.


Suggested Improvements

The radio has a problem with codes and other BS. Visibility is limited in rear.

Review

Nicest car I have ever driven. 145000 happy miles. It is a very hi tech machine, don't buy one unless you are willing to fix things right, and that is not cheap in the 140 body style!


Favorite Features

Room, ride, back seat size.


Suggested Improvements

I really need Heated seats!
