1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Wagon


Review

Purchased model year 1995 E320 wagon in 2003 with 63,000 miles on it. Although it is a wagon, it drives like a sedan and is actually quite fun to drive. The cargo capacity cannot be beat. Primary issue is maintenance and reliability. Just about every part that can break has broken. Spent more on maintenance and repair than original purchase price. From overhauled transmission to the litany of sensors gone bad, this car is not any better than a usually maligned "American" car.


Best Features

Speed, performance, and firm response when driving


Worst Features

Engineer parts for longevity

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Wagon


Review

Great car that feels sturdy and smooth. Purchased the car with 69k and Head Gaket, front engine seal and front timing chain cover was all leaking. After fixing those items it started to have electrical problems. The engine wire harness was brittle and arcing under the top engine cover. Then the center vents in the dash stopped flowing air. To fix, $300 up to $1200 depending on the 6 vacuum pods (10 hours labor).


Best Features

Remote head rests and heated seats. The car rides and steers very nice after changing out the steering coupler. Solid feel for a 12 year old car.


Worst Features

Poor gaskets, bad engine wire harness, bad air conditioning evaporator. At present rear diff. is leaking as is rear engine seal and trans is moist....whats next??? Older Mercedes = Leaky Car. They should learn how to make better gaskets.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300D 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my 4th Mercedes, my 3rd diesel. Wow, they got this one right. It's powerful, reasonably quiet, dead simple to maintain, and the parts aren't bad at all. Bought her with 235k on her, and did ball joints, tie rod ends, brake line ends, and an epic cleaning. Changed the oil and coolant several times, cleaning out the sins of the previous owner. I've put 10k miles on in 6 months, and nothing but smiles. I hit 40 mpg on a 800 mile road trip in October, and nailed 41 mpg on a 400 mile trek later that month! The daily commute gets 36 mpg in the summer, down to 31 in the winter. She's big, she's bad, she's comfortable, and the wife even likes her. Worth the steep price.


Best Features

Traction control is spooky good. Antilock works great. Love those heated seats. Cheap to insure, cheap to run. Galvanized body is holding up well. Compatible with low sulphur diesel!


Worst Features

Sunroof does not look to be correctly aligned when closed, but does not leak. Headlight wiper motor burnt out in icy conditions. Why didn't it pop the fuse?

Review

Hey, I "acquired" this fine vehicle back in 1995 and it has been a wonder. I've driven it everywhere and have had no mechanical issues. Example: I had to mysteriously travel from Florida to NY numerous times, stopping only for gas and the occasional White Castle. I put 9K on the car during one such trip, and she was running like new when I got back. Talk about reliability! I wish other things in my life were this reliable. My wife, girlfriend, son, and mother could all stand to learn something from this car. Hey, unlike my son, this car is a winner. If you have to evade people and institutions via long-term, interstate travel, you can't go wrong with the 95 E-Class


Best Features

Ride, interior comfort, and style. Hey, there are cars in this world with class, and there are cars in this world with no class. This one's got class.


Worst Features

It was price new, and the financing terms left a lot to be desired. But like I've always said, high interest rates hurt only those who choose to pay them. Maintenance is also over-priced, but generally effective.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300D 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had the E300D for about 10 days now, driving 800 miles. Nice, solid feeling, very comfortable. Gas mileage seems to be around 32mpg city and highway combined. Very well made- the car is in excellent shape for being 10 years old. Handles ok in snow, may be better with different tires.


Best Features

Favorite features include the MB tex seats, radio/CD system, and the single wiper. Headlights are bright, and the fog lights even brighter.


Worst Features

Keyless entry system. I miss that.... Could use a better way to set the fan speed on the climate control system.
