"The engine still purrs and has great pick up. You can not tell it is diesel exccept for the classic diesel sound. When it does need repairs they can be costly, but it is well worth it when you balance the safety and the reliability of the car. My Car is over twelve years old and I still get a lot of compliments on it. This could easily be a car to pass down for generations if one takes care of it and sees the beauty and reliabilty in the car. Not to mention, I love the exceleration power and the smoothness of the suspension. Now, the suspension does not handle like a brand new cadillac, but it is now a brand new car. If you are newly married and are planning on having a baby I know you would sleep better knowing your wife is in the E300 TD."

"I have had this Mercedes-Benz for almost four years and it has been great. No problems with the vehicle or its designs. It looks and drives great. The oil is a pain to drain, although I take it to a place and they charge 20 dollars to open the bottom cover. Interior is great and very comfortable. I have the black leather and dark cherry wood. The outside is silver and looks classy. The car runs beautiful; she runs well for all 60,000 miles I have had her for. So far the best car I have ever had; coming from a 2005 Chrysler 300M and BMW 3 Series"

"Unsurpassed comfort and durability. Five hundred mile non-stop trips are a breeze. Seats firm and supportive and infinitely adjustable. Rock solid feel. Mileage from mid-20s around town to high-30s on the open highway. Nobody tailgates a diesel, an added safety benefit. Engine will outlast me and maybe my grand daughter. Instrument cluster not overly busy. Articulating front cupholder is a quirky work of art. Climate control system not a strong point for rear occupants. Otherwise, I love it.."
