1990 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 300E 3.0 Inline-6 from Thailand
A timeless classic luxury tank of a car
Faulty warning light (handbrake light still up even when I put the handbrake down).
Dried out brake pads.
No lights on the dashboard.
A missing rubber ring for the antenna.
Just bought it used, and it's in great condition for 22 year old car with surprisingly low mileage!
Handles like a dream, even though the steering wheel is a bit heavy compared to today's cars.
A textured steering wheel definitely makes me feel like I'm in a spa or something very comfy, and it never feels slippery.
All the faults listed above are very cheap to fix, and the whole car feels sturdy and rigid, yet provides a comfortable massaging ride.
The performance might have some hiccups, since it's a luxury model, but it still pulls and is capable of cruising at 100 mph with a smooth ride and little body roll.
Good fuel consumption.
The interior screams "Swiss cabin". It's packed with wooden panels, heated seats, power seats with memory and tight leather, and all the necessities you need and nothing you don't want, with seamless ergonomics.
This car can go back and forth to the moon several times, and it'll still running; its reliability is legendary!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
