1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S350D Turbodiesel 4dr Sedan
Bought my S350 Turbodiesel about 2 years ago. Has been a great car! Theres obviously regular maintenance that needs to be done, but other than that a very reliable car. BUT YOU MUST GET ONE WITH A RE-BUILT ENGINE! The W140 Diesels were known to bend rods, mine was rebuilt by mercedes before i bought it so i was lucky. Fuel consumption is good, comfort is great, this car turns heads! I have 2 12 inch subwoofers in the trunk which add to the great bose factory system. I highly recommend this car, but make sure the engines rebuilt :)
We have owned our S320 LWB MBZ for 15 years this car has been solid reliable and great on fuel( strait 6cyl is a bit underpowered until u gear down and get the tranny involved). SINCE warranty,we have replaced;wiring harness, and the AC was not blowing out the vents that someone else mentioned but it was NOT 4K to fix.New head liner and the radio antenna and just recently struts($900) and catalytic converter, front suspension from wear and tear but I don't think u can fault the car for that. Also some window switches and now the left rear door window motor is out. Rear AC vent and some makeup mirror hinges have broken. This car still rides like a dream and has so many quality features!!
Quiet and solid and safe and comfortable!. Double paned windows... great road feel and I drive this car hard on curvy roads... Huge back seat space for 4 adults and still looks great!! Can still do 100 and feel great on the FWY!!
Cup holders were clearly a MBZ afterthought and my spilling coffee from their shallowness is what has messed up my window switches which are right there on the shifter deck.
Purchased new and maintained meticulously through the dealership. No worn out parts or service necessary, just preventative maintenance over the years. For a V12 this vehicle performs like it should; excellent fuel mileage for 12 cyl 3.5 ton car and amazing amenities. Rides nice drives nice still feels like new every day at almost 302k miles :) I recommend Mercedes to anyone!
ASR, BAS, EAS, all the computers that keep the car on the road in the most dangerous of situations! Great power, fun to drive, never gets old! Real wood and leather and dual pane glass make this car superior in today's standards.
$189k initial investment, have spent a little over $105k in the past 15 years maintaining her but well worth every penny!
I just bought a 95 s420 for real cheap. I was gonna buy a 96 e320 but saw & test drove it & fell in love with it ! i brought it home & changed tranny fluids & added 2 qt of LUCAS OIL it made such a difference! then i got rid of the stock intake system & replaced it with a cold air intake filter directly on the intake throttle feel hear that & LET THAT engine BREATH
Real nice super car, soft leather interior & a real head turner!
