Never buy an early 4matic
By doggiemom on


1991 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300TE 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD


We bought this car with 147K on it. We
had it checked out and were told it
was in great shape. It came to us with
a failed transfer case leaking a qt of
hydraulic oil every 100 miles. The
repair was nearly $2,000 and the part
very difficult to come by. Now the
front and rear engine seals are
leaking and the engine has to come
out. That will be another $2,000+. The
water pump and alternator failed
within days of each other. There have
been numerous hard start problems.
This is all within 4 months. The car
is fun to drive but I don't trust it
to go more than a month without
needing some hideously expensive
