Pros

great drive, comfy

Cons

weak connecting rods

135

Its A Mercedes. Enough Said. — Its a diesel, so its a little sluggish off the line, braking and handling are decent but keep in mind that this is a very heavy car. Its comfortable to drive, and it looks good. Relatively cheap to maintain, except it likes big repairs. It blew 2 head gaskets in 1 year, and this mercedes diesel is known for bending connecting rods. I'm at 300k, and still going, but you never know.

W124.030 1992 300e — Third Owner, purchased in June of '09 with 88,600 Miles Records dating back to '91. From the post delivery inspection by the dealer prior to sale to the misc. part replacements to this date, no stone is unturned on this vehicle. 3.0 Liter Inline 6, Automatic 4 speed transmission sedan. ~180 HP--~200 ft/lb of torque. car cruises seamlessly and moves when it needs to. Incorporating the Sportline suspension options would make the car track worthy. Anticipate around $1,000 a year to properly maintain a W124. Styling is timeless, comes standard with any the aged Mercedes. A simple walk around the vehicle, not even operating it, reveals a quality built vehicle with every detail having a purpose that will last for decades. Take care of the vehicle and it will take care of you. Washed and Waxed on a weekly basis, the car is serviced and tended to in an anticipating fashion. Modifications: -Early C-Class Polished 15" 8-Holed rims -Euro Amber Corners -Euro Headlights -Euro Wiper Assemblies and Valance Panels -JVC Mp3 Unit Couldn't be happier with this stately sedan and am looking forward to the years of ownership to come.

Pros

Luxurious interior

Cons

nothing worth mentioning

155

Sporty 2 Door Luxury Coupe — Very nice interior and very quiet. Great for long trips or daily commuting. Build quality makes you feel like you are in a large executive office when you step in and close the heavy door. Engine had some power so it was fun but car wasn't particularly fast due to it's weight. Interior pieces look and feel very nice but occasionally need to be replaced with time.

Pros

Unique, reliable, fast once you get it moving, incredibly smooth, not too far off from newer cars

Cons

Heavy, bad gas mileage

65

My First Car, I Love It... — I love almost everything about this car. It looks great, Its incredibly reliable for it's age (16 yrs/ 308,000miles), and its not lacking (too bad) in the performance department. The torque it puts out is actually pretty good considering the normally-aspriated 187 hp I-6 but off the line (automatic at least) it sometimes lacks cause auto starts in second gear and it's pretty heavy so I sometimes have trouble geting up to speed as fast as others, but once you get it going, it GOES. I think the design in itself is classic and it will never really look "old". The luxury and design standards on this car really aren't too far away from some of today's car. I also really love being one of the not-very-many who actually drive a W124 E. Only negatives besides some performance weaknesses Ive noticed so far is the not-too-great (pretty bad) gas mileage (about 20city/25hw). Otherwise I love driving my car...:)

Pros

Fuel Economy. Handling. Looks good. Very reliable.

Cons

Sedan. Not incredibly fast. Acceleration doesn't force you into the back of your seat per-say.

45

Drives Great. Good Fuel Economy. Great Handling. — It's a sedan. That pretty much says it all. However, as far as sedans go, it's near the top. It accelerates reasonably quickly, but it handles like a dream. Turning radius is insane. The car looks pretty good too in jet back with tan interior. Overall, a nice car.

Pros

I picked sporting and fun but don't race her officially but might have a heavy foot sometime

Cons

fuel consumption but they are known as gas guzzlers

25

Its A Merc — Its so quiet for 141,000 miles, motors nicely, very smooth ride but would prefer leather seats. Would have another any day. She used mainly at the weekends but fuel economy is amusing/dire better than the Jag by 3mpg but that could be my heavy foot again. In sport she shifts nicely and quietly out of the way.

Pros

Solid, comfortable

Cons

Cost of ownership

265

Cheap Luxury, Expensive Upkeep — Car is very solid and comfortable to be doing long drives at high speeds on the freeway. Parts are expensive even at mechanics prices, so don't buy one if you can't afford to fix it; because the cars are getting older and will start needing parts replaced.

'92 300e — It's an Ambassador's ride, but THE worst snow car ever! Smooth as silk on the highway, gas is ok, VERY good juice for a 6. Fun(ish) to drive and looks like a Benz SHOULD! I know my kids are safe in this tank!
