Style And Performance In A Nice Looking Wrapper. — A responsive and nice handling car. The build quality is old school Mercedes Benz: built like a vault. I likie the looks of the car, it's nicely proportioned. It's a cheap car to own. I have not had any issues with it other than regular maintenance. Gas mileage isn't the greatest, but that depends on the right foot. The car is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Baby. We've Been Through So Much. Lol. — Performance-Slow off the line in high heat, Superb passing power. A beast in the 60-80mph range. 275hp V8. Build Quality-It's needed some stuff, but only because of its age. Been excellent lately. Appearance-Deep black finish makes it so it always looks good, doesn't get messed up as easily as other black cars I've seen. Interiors great, the color is still vibrant. Germans don't like cupholders. Cost of Ownership-about 20 mpg, so not bad... I get better gas mileage when I don't carry passengers or instruments, and in cooler weather. This car is a blast to drive!

190000km-no repairs.  top-speed on the autobahn : 220km/h easy !

E220 W124 Mb---best Quality Ever Made ! — Whenever i hit the garage ( wheel-change or oil-change), the mechanics get tears in their eyes because of the excellent quality of the car. now with 190000km down the only repairs i had were because of a stupid little accident 5 years ago. besides that an oil-change once a year - all ypou need for the 15year old lady. and on the autobahn 200-220 km/h no problem for the old lady. not for a quatermile dash but a fast and relaxed cruise on the countryside or the autobahn there´s no better car. you have a lot of space and if a signal-lamp needs to be changed you can do it yourself in 2 minutes. cost : 2 $.

Love It! — LOVE it. Not many cars can match the W124 for reliability, build-quality and low maintenance cost. Performance varies with models, handles like how a car should; bigger engine capacity surprisingly gives better fuel economy (possibly due to superior power to weight ratio); low maintenance cost makes it a very feasible daily drive or workhorse even for people who clock up alot of mileage; parts are cheap and abundant. Comfort is not compromised in this car, ample space overall in front, rear and boot space too; ride comfort is very good. Fuel economy cannot be compared to small japanese cars, this is a full-sized saloon; although expressway cruising can get back very good fuel economy. Car has sentimental value too, it is a "young-classic" and has already entered books for tank-like build quality and reliability.

Would Highly Recommend This Gem. — great car, I have owned 18 cars and held onto this one over the years dispite my husband. Its a head turner and the largest convertible you can buy. Handles great although there is some play in the steering. The car acclerates like a new car. Basic maintenance has me at 100K for this 1994 MB E320 Convertible.

Classic styling, good solid engineering.

W124 E-class Coupe - End Of An Era — The W124 series represents the last of the traditional Benz coupes - bulletproof engineering, bank-vault solidity and classic good looks. Lexus / Acura / Infinity entered the scene and changed the game in the mid-90s; it took Mercedes almost a decade to get back in the game with the W211 E-class. The Sports coupe and convertible models featured additional high-line appointments not present in the sedan/estate cars - interior and switchgear from the S-class.

I Drive A Used Mercedes Because I Cant Afford A Used Honda — in most cases concerning an older import such as my 1994 e320 versus buying the same year honda accord is virtually a no brainer. in some cases the benz is priced the same or a lot of times less. my engine blew in my 1998 toyota camry. this car was serviced religiously by me. started looking at hondas , toyotas , etc , etc,. finally looked at a few mb's. logic tells you in most cases as expensive as these cars are new ,they have been more than likely well maintained by the previous owners. thought , hey, they have the the autobahn over there where they build them. these cars are built for high speed and must be built to take such abuse! the american versions have had an easy life with our low speed limits!! as far as up keep and parts? i maintain it myself and an oil change is the same as any other car except you need 2 more quarts of oil.( thats a good thing). parts are available at my local autozone. my new brakes were 6.00 CHEAPER than on my 98 toyota! and easier to install! it getsa better than 30 mpg on the interstate at 75mph. a little weak on take off but comes alive at 3200 rpm s. hold on! im a bona fide benz guy from here on out. its not about being high falootin! its the best choice.and its the most logical.

E320 W124 Coupe - The Best Ever — A very solid, beautiful and fast car! The stability is great, but after all if you want to slide it, it won't be a problem. And it's not breaking down often. It has 6 cylinders, thats good! It's quite comfortable for a 4 seats coupe. It's sure one of the best car ever made!

Better Than A Damn Honda — has strong aceleration, good braking, and sporty handling. everything is extremely smooth, especially the aceleration. for a 1994 it is in great shape with 150K miles. intertior and exterior disigned well. it is pretty expensive to own, gas milage is alright, take premium fuel. I enjoy driving this car!

Great Car For A Diyer, If Depending On A Shop They'll Probably Ream You — W124 chassis models are great cars. Certain ones only had one issue, which was wire harness deterioration. This effected sensors and triggered the CEL check engine light also effected the EA electronic accelerator. Some other nuisances was the ASR or traction control. I didn't have these issues with my car.
