1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300D 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my 3rd M-B diesel and is just a rock solid car. 15 years old and looks like new, yea, there are a few little issues with fuses etc, but who cares when you get about 38 mpg overall. Rides great and has plenty of power for a diesel, keep them serviced and they'll run for ever!


Best Features

Awesome mileage!


Worst Features

Cup holders, better electrics.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Sedan


Review

My experience was not good at all, I paid more in repairs in one year than the car was worth. I bought it with 113k miles and within one year I had to replace the transmission, head gasket, neutral safety switch, ignition tumbler, blower motor regulator, combination relay. I'm sure there is more that I am forgetting. Of course, the previous owners might have played a big part in these issues, but after reading the online forums apparently most have these issues. According to my mechanic the wiring harness also crumbles but I never waited for that and sold it to buy a Honda.


Best Features

Beautiful exterior styling


Worst Features

Leaky gaskets, poor gas mileage, outdated dash for a 95 vehicle, zero cup holders, very minimal storage inside because of it has no glove box, expensive parts for a car that tends to break too often.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 2dr Convertible


Review

I had a Subaru Sti and replaced it with this. This is truly the last great Mercedes convertible! More like a rolls than a BMW. Elegant without being flashy. Great smooth transmission without a too big engine. Plenty of power but really a luxury car, not a sports car.


Best Features

Build quality, suaveness.


Worst Features

Seats are comfy, but not quite as sweet as some newer models. No cup holders.

Review

This car is my first real luxury car, and I can honestly say you get what you pay for. The car is now 15 years old and I love driving it more and more each day. It is a classy, well built, dependable vehicle. Have put maybe $700 worth or repairs into it in a year for front struts and tension pulley, that's it. Oil changes are a little more pricey, but only need to be done every 7500 miles. Have learned to do a lot of minor repairs myself with the help of manuals and internet. Trust me if you ever ride in one you will see why I am so in love with my baby. Rode in a 2003 Benz and my car's ride is definitely smoother.


Best Features

Classy interior and exterior. Well built car, that will treat you good if you treat it good.


Worst Features

Cup holders would have been nice, along with a real glove compartment, which were both added in later models.

Review

The twin-cam straight six has always been a great engine, and the variable cam version has to rate as one of MB's best engines. It pulls like a V8 and roars when told to do so. The engine is also bullet proof, as is the transmission, brakes, and suspension. All work like new after 112k miles. BUT, the car is best suited to milder climates -- like San Fran -- because the HVAC is total crap. I've lost heat in the winter and seldom had cold air in the summer, despite spending lots and lots of money on constant repairs. The locks are also a weak spot.


Best Features

As mentions: superb engine. Good ergodynamics. Classic styling.


Worst Features

Electrical and HVAC reliability should be up to Kia standard rather than at par with Yugo.
