"I am the original owner of a 1992 300 TE 4-matic. It seemed expensive in 1992 at $52,000 but it does not owe me a penny. I have put on 144,000 trouble free miles since. In 2007 I bought a new E350 4-matic (the same color) for $52,000 (amazing) because I was becoming fearful of long trips in the old car, but I kept the old one even though several folks wanted to buy it, because I like the style better, it is better built, the straight six is quieter and smoother than the V6 in the new one, the 7-speed transmission on the new one is annoying and constantly shifting, and it has better visability because of its square design and fewer annoying headrests. Yes, I have had things repaired over the years but on the whole the maintenence has been no more than expected. The paint, leather, and carpet are like new. I only have 5,000 miles on the new one and only use it for long trips!"

"smooth driving and quiet engine! One of the finest vehicles ever owned! Mercedes did a beautiful job engineering this one, lesser brands still have not been able to achieve what Mercedes had 20 years ago!"

"I have owned my teal colored wagon for 12 years. I purchased it from my brother-in-law in 1998 and it had 98,000 miles on it. It currently has 314,000 miles and rides better than my 2007 Toyota Camry. I love it's style and reliability. Parts are expensive but performance is amazing. This car originally sold for $58,000 in 1991. It was worth it!!!!! My mechanic, who is German, said this model was best mercedes made."
