300 TE Now a Dinosour
By Sean Craft on


1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300TE 4dr Wagon


These wagons have always been among the most handsome cars on the road. For a 1992 model, they were generously equipped and the 92's were the first with standard dual airbags. Compared to newer cars I have owned, the transmission is slow to respond and jerks. The A/C system temp is very hard to modulate, either full on or too low. As these cars age common problems are: Cruise control/power windows/mirrors, central lcoking, valve cover gaskets prone to leaking, rear air suspensions fail eventually, cooling system fails eventually as well. All these repairs are pricy but once fixed, won't happen again for the life of the car. Bargain used but get one that was pampered!

Best Features

Styling, size, dual power seats, versatility, ride, stability, safety, brakes, smooth engine. My car has 190,000 miles on it and is still "tight" and drives better then anything with this much mileage should.

Worst Features

Cup holders, better HVAC system controls/modulation, more reliable switches and electronics. Get them while they last, they are cheap used, just get one that has been maintained! Great second car for sure
