This 1995 E300D is a Mercedes classic with
legendary style and bulletproof reliability. 1995 was the last year of the
nine-year run for the W124 chassis in the U.S. market, making this vehicle the
high-water mark for the refinement of the line. For many Mercedes diesel
enthusiasts, this particular model, along with the W124s that preceded it,
represent the perfect balance between the reliability of the old and refinement
of the new.
vehicle is performing to high standards. Steering, handling, acceleration,
braking, shifting, etc. are all performing well. It's really a joy to drive!
606 engine is really very impressive. Plenty of power. . .great around town,
but it really excels on the open road. Both the 606 engine and the 722
transmission have proved to be extremely reliable over the years (as I suspect
you already know if you're reading this ad). I know of one individual with this
car with over 400,000 miles and counting on the original transmission! Recent
transmission fluid and filter service confirms that the transmission is in good
condition. And while it's impossible to be certain, it's likely that many of
the miles are highway miles.
are in excellent condition with lots of tread remaining; rear tires are BRAND
exterior is in overall decent condition, though there are imperfections upon
close inspection. Visual impact from 10-15 feet is quite good. I think the pics
give an accurate representation.
frame and the body are rust free with the exception of the beginnings of rust
at the rear jack points (not visible with caps on, but this should probably be
addressed at some point). And there are two small holes in the rear wheel wells
that have been patched and had undercoat sprayed on.
front suspension was recently carefully inspected by my mechanic. He noted that
it's been well attended to, with many parts replaced. The only item to be
addressed is the right lower ball joint. While there is no movement, there is
mild intermittent squeaking. It should probably be replaced in the
interior (seats, dash, trim, etc.) is in very nice condition. The one exception
is the front part of the arm rest, which is worn away.
climate control works reasonably well. Heat is piping hot, variable fan speed
works as designed, the blower motor does not squeak, and the AC is ice cold.
However, there is a leak in the system (not diagnosed as of yet), so periodic
recharging is required. Also, the air flow at the vents does not seem to be as
strong as it should be, even after replacing the cabin filters.
is one glow plug that is not working, but the car starts without any
difficulty. There is a block heater, but I doubt that it would ever be needed
(some like to warm the block on cold mornings. . .I've never bothered).
original Becker audio system works great. And there is a CD changer mounted in
the trunk. A cassette adapter works well for iPod, smart phone, etc...

following items are not functioning as they should: (1) Left Rear Window (needs
a new regulator. . .the motor works); (2) Sunroof; (3) Exterior Temperature
Gauge. (4) Auxiliary Fans. The auxiliary fans are certainly not needed when the
AC is not running or when running the AC on the highway. Even in stop and go
traffic with the AC on, the temperature gauge says well within safe levels.
But, on a very hot day climbing a steep grade with the AC on you would probably
need the fans. Under most driving conditions, you can safely live without them.
New fans can be purchased for as little as $68 each; there are two of them.
REASON FOR SELLING
am I selling the car? What I like to do, in addition to the 91 300D and the 92
300D that I own, is to acquire and get acquainted with different Mercedes
diesels now and again. I had always wanted to own a 95 E300D but never had the
opportunity, so this became my latest "additional" car. I've enjoyed
learning about it and working on it, and especially DRIVING it, but now it's
time to pass it on to a more permanent owner so that I can search for my next
car. I have no particular need to sell the car and am very glad to enjoy it
until it does sell.
bottom line: this is a classic W124 diesel sedan, undoubtedly one of the best
cars Mercedes ever made, in good condition for a fair reserve price. (FYI NADA is
$4555, Kelly Blue Book is $4665).
attempted to provide a reasonably full description of the car, partly because I
want prospective buyers to be as informed as possible, and partly because I
despise Craigslist ads with no information. Feel free to call, text, or email
with any questions. I will answer promptly and to the best of my ability.

Think of the letters AMG and you'll probably end up picturing a performance sedan with a big V8. Such has become, after all, the Mercedes turning division's calling card. But with the introduction of its 2.0-liter turbo four, AMG is working at turning that notion on its head.
Tue, 27 Sep 2011 11:29:00 EST
The highly potent engine produces 355 horsepower and is presently installed in the A45 AMG hatchback, CLA45 AMG sedan and GLA45 AMG crossover, giving Benz's smallest family a full range of performance models. But that might not be the full extent of the high-strung four-pot's use.
Speaking with AMG boss Tobias Moers, Britain's What Car? magazine reports that Affalterbach is considering slotting the same engine into larger models, particularly performance sedans like the C-Class. As we recently reported, Mercedes is already preparing to up the power from the turbo V6 in the C400 to slot a C450 Sport in below the C63 AMG. The C450 is expected to offer around 367 horsepower where the CLA45 AMG et al pack 355, but the lighter weight of the four-cylinder engine would likely offset the truancy of those extra dozen horses. Of course such a prospect would be much further down the pipeline than the C450 Sport which is expected to arrive much sooner.
If you have, like us, been salivating at the notion of a new generation of Maybach and Lagonda ultra-luxury crafts built by Aston Martin, we've got some bad news: According to reports emanating from Germany, talks between AML and Daimler have broken down.
Tue, 19 Nov 2013 08:00:00 EST
The proposal under negotiation would have seen Daimler outsourcing production of the next family of Maybach models to Aston Martin, which in return would benefit from Mercedes-Benz platforms and engines - not only for its svelte GTs, but also for its own future Lagonda line of limousines and luxury SUVs. That, and a boatload of money - or at least that's what AML was reportedly seeking, an issue that served as the stumbling block over which the deal reportedly collapsed.
That's not to say the two parties couldn't still reach some sort of a compromise, but short of that, Daimler may opt to either shut down Maybach altogether, find another partner, or take another stab at building new models internally.
Daimler and Beijing Automotive are officially going steady, with the German company set to take a 12-percent stake in the Chinese brand tomorrow. The two are already tied up in a Mercedes engine plant in Beijing, of which BAIC will increase its stake in, from 50 to 51 percent. Daimler will also get two seats on the Chinese company's board. BAIC may also gain the ability to produce cars on Mercedes-Benz platforms, according to Automotive News Europe.
The investment in BAIC comes ahead of that company's initial public offering, according to a report form Bloomberg, which indicates the deal will be inked tomorrow in the Chinese capital. According to the report, if the circumstances are right, BAIC may turn around and invest in the Germany company "soon."
It's not entirely clear just how much the 12-percent cut is costing Daimler, although it seems reasonable to assume that, as it's ahead of the IPO, the parent company of Mercedes is getting a bit of a bargain.
