1995 Mercedes-Benz W124 E300 Diesel 3.0 diesel from Australia and New Zealand
The car that will take you to the moon and back
I heard once a saying that this Mercedes will take you to the moon and back. Well, now I am starting to believe that, because this vehicle is as tough as nails.
Nothing ever goes wrong with this car, and it's so competent in every aspect, that I would not be afraid to go up in the air and fly this thing - go figure.
Every now and again, as I drive and notice certain cars on the road, I wonder where are they all gone? Because newer cars, they just disappear and you never see them again. And this is the legacy that this Mercedes-Benz has left us with.
It is a heavy duty unit of commercial quality, that will stand the test of time, and I will never drive anything else.
All I have to say is Thank You to Daimler-Benz, for a premium product, that has given me so much joy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The moon would be a short jaunt! I looked for years and found a W124 300d. It is amazing. I have been running it on 100% biodiesel for 2 years without a single problem. Nearly 50 MPG and it is free! The W124 was the last good Mercedes, and they're bullet proof.
