1990 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 4 Dr 300TE 4MATIC AWD Wagon Review

1990 Mb 300te 4-matic — The straight six is surprisingly torquey. The 4 matic system keeps it glued to the road. We acquired the car in Jan.09 and replaced brakes, cruise module, changed oil and otherwise thorough going over. The exterior is pristine(original paint). Imported from Japan had low kms and the leather looks brand new. Only problem is the material pulling away from the b-pillars. Easy to fix. Mileage has been consistently over 25 mph and maitenance so far had been adding a bit of oil between changes and topping up the 4-matic's hydraulic oil. I love this car. It is solid on the road yet very comfortable. Only option missing is tilt/telescoping wheel.

Pros: AAA+++

Cons: None for me.

Mercedes 1990 300 E — The car has a sleek exterior, mostly sharp lines gives it a perstegious look. The tires are wide to have a better grip on the road. the engine has a fine rumble to it and its a solidly built vehicle. The cons are that parts are expenisve and it requires premium gasoline. The moon roof makes it fun to drive in the summer so no need for AC.

Pros: Prestegious, solid build, fun to drive.

Cons: cost of ownership, only premium gasoline.

My 300e — My Merc had 90K miles on it when I bought it Sept. 07. The previous 2 owners had taken great care of the car, averaging about 5K miles per year. They body is almost perfect, with just a few small dings, and very good paint. The interior looked showroom even had the original plastic covering front and rear door sills. Unfortunately neither owner had followed the recommended service schedule. They did service based only on mileage, and with so little mileage per year lots of things were dried up and worn out before they were changed. Tranny fluid and filter, fan belts, air filters were left in the car for years. Luckily, after replacing all of the fluids, belts, filters, brake pads, radiator and water pump everything is now fine and dandy. Car is Nautical blue with Palomino leather. Beautiful. Everything is stock, except for a 10 CD changer in the trunk and some coco fiber floor mats. Performance is mediocre at best - its just a 3 litre six, but once you get to 3000 rpm it starts to pull pretty good. Freeway speeds are effortless and smooth. Transmission is smooth and quiet. Brakes are very good, but pedal effort is pretty high. Stops are straight, and fade is minimal in normal conditions. Air conditioning is great, but it probably need a recharge soon. That could be a problem, as it uses the old Freon. There are NO squeaks or rattles, little wind noise and no loose or ill-fitting parts. Two things need attention. The cruise control is inoperative, and I need to replace both front door speakers. The crusie is way too expensive to consider -could be near $900 to fix everything, and the speakers will be difficult to replace and keep stock-looking. So, cost of ownership is high. I paid a high price for the car, and OEM replacement parts are insanely expensive. But the solidness of the ride, high build quality along with classic looks make it a great car.

Pros: bulid quality, looks, comfort, ride quality

Cons: high cost of service and OEM parts

1990 300 E — My 1990 300 E is a very well made car. The acceleration is a little sluggish sometimes, but when pressed, it can thrust forward when needed. The car is almost 20 years old and still drives and looks like a much newer car. The car has no rattles on bumpy roads which is remarkable for a car of this age. The styling is a little dated in comparison to the streamline models of 2008, but it's style is timeless. The car should hold its own in its classic look for years to come. I am amazed at how a mid-sized sedan can corner. Often it feels like the car is riding on rails around curves. The car is very nice to drive and to ride in. It's gas mileage is decent. I get around 22-24 miles to the gallon.

Pros: quality of build and reliability

Cons: when repairs come, parts are not cheap; my mechanic says reapirs should not come often

Best Car I Have Ever Owned — Just bought one with only 88,000 miles. The previous owner (original) really took great care of this car. Everything works, exterior and interior look better than my 6 year old car. Drives smooth, with very few rattles. A joy to own.
