1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 300CE 300 gasoline fueled


This car's value cannot be purely represented by money


I had the 90000 mile tune-up completed last week. My dealer charged $3000.00 but had the car 4 days and provided a new Buick loaner.

This is my dream car and no amount of money could replace it in my heart.

I have had no minor no major complaints.

General Comments:

This automobile is very fast, quiet, smooth and exceedingly comfortable. It drives unlike any other car I've driven. To day I've personally owned 187 cars, trucks and motorcycles, this machine is a work of art.

That's nice you get a Buick over your Mercedes, very classy.

I agree you shouldn't get a Buick when taking your Mercedes in no matter what year it is. I have 3 Lexus one, being a 1992 SC400 and when I take it in, they provide me with a brand new Lexus at no cost. Lexus service is amazing. It's way cheaper than my S500. Going to sell that car soon. Can't take Mercedes costs much longer. Can make you go broke no matter how rich you are!

I'm struggling to see how this was chosen as one of the two best-written reviews of this car. I own one, but if I didn't this review wouldn't have told me anything I need to know. And what kind of person pays $3,000 for a service on a 1992 automobile. is this for real?

That's a high service cost mate. It's only £200 for the top service over here in the UK.

1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 300 E 3.0L I6


The best overall Mercedes with the exception of the new 2003 E-Class


The tumbler had to be replaced on this one and my 1989 300E. Other than that nothing.

General Comments:

I feel that the W124 300E is a complete package. Classy looks, solid build, prestigious history, great performance, great ride. This car was definitely built to cruise the Autobahn.

I had an 1989 300E that I gave to my brother. It was mint, but I wanted the updated looks of the interior/exterior of the 1992. Mine has the 8 spoke wheels which make it look sporty.

I long for a 500E/E500! An all alloy V8 that weighs only 18lbs more than the cast iron I6 with suspension and brakes by Porsche.

I just took a head on accident in my 1986 300E at a fairly high speed, head-on and walked away with only airbag burns. This car is fast, safe, and reliable. The 300E is a great car, all around.

My best purchase, yet


A few holes were in the muffler - which I chose to replace.

The antenna motor needed replacing.

General Comments:

This car has the most stability and comfort of any car I've owned. I feel extremely safe when on the road. It's very quite and smooth.

1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 300E 3.0 inline six


Buying one 8 years old is better than driving a new $20k car


Slow oil leak, need to replace the head gasket.

AC works only on the center vents.

General Comments:

Very nice driving car.

Fun to drive.

Nice weight in the steering wheel with that high quality feel.

1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 300E 2.6 liter


It's a piece of garbage


1. Engine quit when put in gear.

2. Air conditioner failed.

3. Transmission has erratic operation.

4. When sitting for 30 minutes or more after running, it's extremely hard to start.

5. Radiator hose fitting broke, causing extreme overheating.

6. Voltage regulator failed.

7. Battery exploded.

8. Power seat switch failed.

9. Fuel filler cover door broke off.

10. I get 15 miles per gallon in town, and 18 on the open road.

General Comments:

For a named auto this is a POOR example.

I have spent more on repairs than the auto cost me to buy. The "Ergonomic seats" will break your back on trips over 100 miles long. Other than that, it's a pretty car.

I own E300 from 1989 (W124), and I still think, this is one of the best cars ever made.

Small problems appeared, yes, but car is a car.

Honestly, I never heard that a MB had so many problems at the same time. It must be a production failure or it was bought as a used car. If it was bought as a used car, well, you never know what has been done to it.
