1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Sedan


Review

The twin-cam straight six has always been a great engine, and the variable cam version has to rate as one of MB's best engines. It pulls like a V8 and roars when told to do so. The engine is also bullet proof, as is the transmission, brakes, and suspension. All work like new after 112k miles. BUT, the car is best suited to milder climates -- like San Fran -- because the HVAC is total crap. I've lost heat in the winter and seldom had cold air in the summer, despite spending lots and lots of money on constant repairs. The locks are also a weak spot.


Best Features

As mentions: superb engine. Good ergodynamics. Classic styling.


Worst Features

Electrical and HVAC reliability should be up to Kia standard rather than at par with Yugo.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300D 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought my 95 E300D in Jan of '07 with 282,000 miles on it and 1" Benz 430 wheels with a spare in the trunk. I have put almost 20k more on it with 12K+ using Biodiesel B99/B100. On the Bio, this car is as quiet and smooth as a Corolla. It is also great with an Elsbett veggie oil kit. Plus, in LA stop and go, the car averages 25-27mpg, which is almost the same as my wife's 2000 Corolla. This car is a solid as they come. I hope that it never gets totaled.


Best Features

I can push or pull your Suburban up a hill.


Worst Features

Cup holders. If you buy one of these, upgrade the wheels to 17" for a better ride and better mileage.

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

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.
