Super fine, solid and quick car
Nothing has gone wrong so far, so good.
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
