Mercedes-Benz 300TE Reviews

Awesome car! These cars were so over-engineered and built as to almost never wear out. We drive "Betty" all over the Big Island with no worries about break-downs, etc. If you think getting your oil/filter changed is a service, you're heading for trouble, no matter what you drive. I service the car well, near-new tires, belts, hoses, etc. replaced on a regular basis. Use only Premium fuel...
Over all the car is very well made mine has 270,000 miles normal maint is required.
love the car but always seem to need something. Best family car EVER
