"I have had this car for 3 years, it runs great. Never had any major mechanical problems, only wear and tear. I finally replaced the original water pump that had 210,000 miles on it! Just an example of how reliable this car has been. I get about 28 mpg city and 35 mpg highway."
"This car runs awesome at over 200,000 miles. As a diesel owner, it breaks my heart to think about owning anything other than a Mercedes Diesel. I've owned this car since 2000 and have loved it! Great looking, great running, great great car for the money. For an older car, this thing will run me forever and I will have to run it until it dies on me. Great on the highway, wonderful on fuel, and can even run on bio-diesel (big plus with gas prices). If you have the chance to buy one - go for it. Still running great 17yrs later."
"My mother passed last August leaving me with a 1993 300D Turbo Mercedes Benz. The car was in perfect mechanical condition with 76532 miles but needed a paint job. I was offered $8500 for it. After getting the paint job I have been offered $11000 for it. I would have never believed that the value would sustain itself like it has. I know in part it is because of the low mileage and that it uses diesel gas. Great car!!!"
"Purchased this 1992 turbo diesel Mercedes new. It still looks like a million dollars! It is the best driving car on the road. You cannot beat it. It is still a delight to drive. It has features that many of today's cars can't touch. Solid as a rock. Amazing car to be 20 years old."
"I bought this car used for 1/3 its original price. It has been a outstanding car. The last over engineered vehicle built by Mercedes Benz according to Wikipedia. I drove it for 7-1/2 hours with very good comfort and handling. Average 32 mpg. Nobody beats the safety and engineering of a Benz. SAFETY first then reliability/fuel consumption all in one."
