Mercedes-Benz 300SE Problems
High mileage vehicles may develop a transmission fluid leak from one or more of the oil seals.
One or more door windows may stop working due to a failed window regulator. Replacement of the failed regulator will be necessary to correct this concern.
Due to wear, high usage vehicles can experience ignition lock and tumbler failures. The ignition lock cylinder will generally require replacement to correct this concern.
The tie rod ends, idler arm, and/or drag link components of the steering linkage may wear prematurely. Please keep in mind the wheel alignment should be checked and adjusted when any of these items are replaced.
Leaks may develop from the differential seals and/or cover on older or high mileage vehicles. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit when these leaks are addressed.

having problems with the sunroof. It opens when I unlock my doors
so far so good with my 1993 Mercedes 300SE. Bought it from 2nd owner. It has 189,000 still running smooth. The overdrive didnt work when I bought it . Do believe the shifter is the issue. Something may be stuck inside there. rear main engine seal leaking tiny bit of oil. Interior in nearly perfect condition. paint still very good. Trying to figure out Overdrive issue...Any suggestions email Trav2089@yahoo.com
the design is truly classic.Beautifully solid and quality car.
One of the best Mercedes ever made. This is my third Mercedes, the 1990 300 SE, and I am about to spent $4000 to get a paint job. Car runs great and I have only 160000 miles. The design is truly classic.
Elegant lines going to a great front end. Can't wait to see it like new and drive it for the next twenty years.
Beautifully solid and quality car. Every line on its body has purpose, nothing is clumsy or mediocre. Nice extras like all the little map lights, leather everywhere, everything that is wonderful about this car makes up for the things that take alittle extra money or time to maintain.
A well maintained 300SE will last a million miles, a neglected one will be a money pit. Make sure you buy one that wasnt mistreated.
This car has one of the best transmissions ever made.
Hundreds of safety features, windows roll down if car is submerged. They will never build this kind of quality again.
