Summary:

Super fine, solid and quick car

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong so far, so good.

General Comments:

A Mercedes 300e is a very comfortable and reliable car.

It is really great to drive. It feels very solid and safe, and is very quick too. Even today it is competitive.

I bought this car almost a year ago, and every day I love to drive it. I drove it on two vacations to the south of France in October 2009, and this summer to the South of Spain for a trip of more than 6000 km. Also I use it for work and daily driving. With the air con and cruise control on, it was no problem at all to drive 900 plus km a day. Cruising at 150 an hour is lots of fun.

The car is quiet, and the brakes are very good. It feels safe at high speed.

Only two remarks: the car is somewhat sensitive to side winds, and also the driver's seat is not the best you can imagine. There are better seats in lots of cars. It is a pity Mercedes builds such good cars, but does not put good seats in the year 1992.

Also fuel consumption is at a high level. But what do you expect for a car this quick, comfortable, spacious and solid. I take it for granted, and I am planning to keep it for many years.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Faults:

The heater control was replaced.

The sunroof motor got replaced.

New front brake disc's and pads every 25000 km.

New hardy-clutch every 50.000 km.

Frequent power window failures.

Windscreen wiper is weak point.

The power locks failed regularly.

Rust is the biggest enemy of this car, especially years 85 - 88.

General Comments:

The MB W-124 series is one of the best cars on the street, today still.

Best buys are 89 - 94 models.

Beware of rust.

Great cruiser, smooth ride, great mileage.
