"I purchased a 1991 for my Dad and it has been a dream car from that day to this (2015!). Owned three subsequent MBenz and I'll never own another, compared to this car they aren't worth your time, effort, energy, money or GRIEF. > 190,000 MI on it and the only problems I had were when I lent it to someone else and it came back to me with a host of pricey problems (weekend trips to Vegas and no maintenance). However, have happily spend the $$ to get it back up to snuff; it is the best road car ... ever. Fun to drive, with a ride that still is astonishing (oops, officer, I really didn't notice I was going 100!) I have religiously taken it to MBenz dealer for repair (although they did forget to put the oil back in it once!), and that is likely part of its longevity. Use genuine parts and get them put in by someone who knows what they're doing. It's worth it. And no matter how many times they ask, no I won't let anyone, even your mechanic, pry it away from you! Oh, yeah, one last thing; that little "jerk" into first is right; it's just something you get used to; you WILL NOT win any races off the line ... but 20 yards later ... watch out!"

"I bought this car with 100,000 miles on it for $3,800. It uses premium gas but gets combined 24 mpg average.(I record my mpg every fill up). Its had an oil leak since I bought it, so I put a quart of oil in it every month or so. Its comfortable. It drives great. I can't believe the price KBB says its worth. I wouldn't sell it for anything less than $3,500, and all the other people out there selling this car agree."

"Outstanding German engineering, this car just keeps running! Never broken down on me, many clean examples for sale online with over 200k MILES on the clock. After production ceased in 1993, Mercedes-Benz admitted this car was over-engineered themselves and has an excellent galvanised chassis with crumple zones. Safe is the word! Very comfortable, try pick one up with leather interior and a front armrest (person preference). It's reassuring to see the three-pointed-star on the bonnet whilst driving this "beast", as my friends call it. Extremely comfortable and would give a modern car a run for its money on the road. Bad point is that after the 20 year mark you may need to repair suspension/track rod ends/shocks, although get one with FSH and you're laughing! Shocks/track rods can be bought for under £100 and mine's not been in a garage yet."

"I've owned my 190e for 3 years and am in love with it. Seriously it amazes me that this car is from 1993 cause it feels, drives and looks like a car from around 1998-2000. Its got power everything from seats to mirrors which is dope. This car also has alot of giddy-up, as I have raced and beaten my friends who all own cars from the late 90's. Pretty much anyone who I have given a ride to comments on the car and wants to know if I will sell it one day. Sadly for all of them, I just laugh and say "not a chance""
