1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E300TD Turbodiesel 4dr Sedan


Review

My 5th MB diesel (170/190/220/300 (1975)), bought new and kept almost 10 yrs. The 99 the only disappointing one, a pleasure to drive, but very disappointing quality, rust (repainted a few times by MB, but it is back 2 years later)and many electric and various problems that just should never have happened, wheel bearings, generator, mirrors, CD changer, lampsockets, sliding roof, airconditiong etc. For the money we spend every year with MB Toronto on maintenance (incidentally, excellent service, pricey, but no hassles !) I could lease another car !


Best Features

Wonderful car to drive, excellent response, no engine problems, cold weather start no problem.


Worst Features

Improve the parts and the body quality.

Review

This vehicle has been nothing but trouble since I purchased it brand new. Electrical problems followed by coolant and fuel line problems. It has been in the shop at least once every 2-3 months since purchase. Since warranty expired it costs $500 per visit minimum and sometimes up to $2000. The mileage has never been more that 29 mpg and it is a diesel! I will never buy another Mercedes because of this experience.


Best Features

None. Below expectations in all categories.


Worst Features

Make a more reliable car and stand behind it.

Review

I have driven MB for 20 years. The 1999 turbo diesel is a great car. It has plenty power on the highway. I am the second owner. It did have 70,000 km mostly highway. Replaced glow plugs, rotors, pads, front bearings, and the battery. I want to keep it and will replace timing chain before it hits the 300,000 km


Best Features

Reliable


Worst Features

Sunvisor is too small

Review

I purchased this car a month ago in VA, and drove it 1000 miles home. It is a beautiful vehicle with outstanding economy (35 hwy), amazing for a 2 ton car. It is quiet, smooth, and nothing is loose. From the inside you cannot tell that is it a diesel. We need to educate Americans about diesels. They are very mainstream in the rest of the world. They are no longer slow, loud, and smokey. Stop being so concerned about horsepower when it is torque that matters. The car is very quick. It looks like new. It had 100,500 miles on it when purchased.


Best Features

The fit and finish. Outstanding fuel economy. Lots of room for the family. This is a true road car.


Worst Features

None

Review

This car is great. 80,000 miles and still as smooth as ever. Most expensive MB Extended Factory warranty is a must though. Had several back window motors break. Other things from time to time. They came to ME within an hour and fixed it no cost each time. I drive it hard. Turbo really kicks it up a notch. Drove 4 maximas prior to getting the TD. Each one felt like it was falling apart at 35k miles. This car at 80K is just getting broken in.


Best Features

Black outside and tan inside looks incredible. This car looks great, drives great and gets great mileage. Custom 10''subs and a 300 watt amp plus a 10 gig Music Keg going into a custom Kenwood Radio is a kick A feature.


Worst Features

Remote control opener not the best, Add french fry catchers standard.(Always dropped stuff down side of seat and center console)Its hard to improve something that is near perfect!
