Mercedes-Benz 190E Reviews and Owner Comments
1991 Mercedes-Benz 190EVisitor, Denton, TX, January 07, 2013 15:01My car starts but will not stay started. Today I was trying to start it and the master cylinder backfired. Please advise Thanks, Tommu Lee
1993 Mercedes-Benz 190EVisitor, Montgomery, AL, December 12, 2011 15:33I have a 1993 Mercedes 190E. Nice driving car. Has many problems, mostly electrical. Only the driver side window works. Rear passenger tire is "shooting bullets". At times my car will not crank up in the cold. To get a/c, I have to turn on the heat and then turn down the temperature dial. The speaker on the back driver side is the only one that works. Very choppy while shifting gears. Shakes very hard while sitting at a light. Great steering and handling.

1990 Mercedes-Benz 190EHerschel, Birmingham, MI, April 24, 2010 15:04I purchased my 1990 190e 2.6L 6-cyl, with 176,000 on it in Royal Oak, MI from Karl Heinz Automotive, a private repair garage owned by a previous BMW-M-B mechanic who went out on his own years ago. From the records, it seems like the previous owner purchased the car about 10 years ago with 120K on it and had it as a 2nd car. Much had been repaired on the car including paint, the heater core and anything else that needed it when the time came. I was out of a job at the time (I came from the automotive business in the Detroit metro area- no surprises here) so the price the price was a godsend. The repair shop said "everything worked" which meant that it had the main things like the brakes, exhaust system., A/C, new Brillstein shocks, replaced recently and the head and valves had been done within the last two years. The previous owner had been a Tuskegee airman, now in his 90s, and I regret not having been able to meet him as the car was sold on consignment. The car needed tires and has a yet to be resolved problem with starting when warmed up and the tac rising to 2000 RPM, but it's been a pleasure to drive and my wife enjoys driving it as well. It's a classy old car and it treats us good, but I want to get the starting problem fixed before I destroy something beyond my ability to get repaired because of cost. I'll be back at work in a week or two and hope to catch up with the repairs. I love the car and if I won the lottery tomorrow, I'd get a new E-Class Cabriolet for the wife, but I'd gladly keep the 190 2.6 for me and enjoy fixing it up. H. H. Birmingham, MIRookie
1990 Mercedes-Benz 190Ebenz85, Gastonia, NC, February 10, 2010 13:13This car has been a joy to own. Transmission went at 120,000 miles and there have been a few minor electrical problems, but overall it's been great. At 180,000 miles my A/C is out and I need advice on what to fix.Enthusiast
