I own a Mercedes Benz 300e that I bought for my wife for $1700. At that point it had 249,000 miles on it. Before we owned it, it had been sitting for some years and had a acceleration delay issue. Once we got it back on the road I added fuel injector cleaner and drove it hard on the highway. Now the issue only appears before its fully warmed up to operating temperature. She did not want it back and after a while I ended up driving it for work (she stole my Range Rover!). I would beat on it on a regular basis but now miraculously, it drives better than ever! As a matter of fact, it will not die!!! I decided that I liked it but just couldn't get over driving a four door so I bought a 300ce in hopes that it will be just as tough but cooler being a two door coupe. We will see what happens, I'll let you know!
I've had my 92' 300E with the 3 liter engine for close to 15 years now and it now has 248,000 miles on it. I’ve only had the standard repairs to perform for a car of this age (radiator, alternator, belts) all self repaired/replaced. The only small annoyance is the need to add oil, about 2 quarts/month, but I've accepted it. The car still runs strong and rides well. It’s getting close to time for a replacement but it’s a tough car to replace what with its proven reliability through all the years. I'm looking at another E Class, just a bit newer. Mercedes did a good job with this class
Car is very dependable when it's running. Strong engine at 170K miles, but I do find that it has a problem with the air conditioner sometimes blowing and sometimes not. It happens quite frequently. I also have noticed that it leaks transmission fluid if it sits for more than a week or so. Those are the two problems that I have encountered with this vehicle at this juncture. I love the way it handles and its heavy enough to handle the road very well. I would buy another one with less miles if it came available.
After having the car on road and driving it a lot I had to replace the original raditor belt tenisoner and alternator also last year replaced the orginal voltage regulator Love this car gets driven almost 70,000 miles a year
auto genial en todo
Having problems with it starting in the morning when it is cold...
117000 miles and no leaks, drips, or bad concerns. New brakes ,rotors and tires, but I am uncertain what a 120K mile maintenance should entail and cost. First time user and new Mercedes owner. Vehicle is a 300E 4Matic. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
