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...

(Zerex G-05 and distilled water)
steering fluid and filter
catalytic converter (Magnaflow)
leaking resonator pipe with straight pipe
expansion tank cap

in RI, safety inspection valid through May 2015.
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.

The current Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG may be in the autumn of its years, but it's still one of our very favorite sport sedans. Ever. Yes, its paddle-shift transmission may not always follow orders, but with stupendous levels of thrust from its charismatic naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8, ebullient rear-wheel-drive dynamics and that noise, we frankly don't care that it's getting on a bit.

As a sendoff of sorts for the current generation, Mercedes-Benz has just introduced a new Edition 507 model at the Geneva Motor Show, with 507 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque - an increase of 56 horses over the standard car. Mercedes credits the substitution of low-mass internals from the SLS AMG gullwing for the power bump, a tactic shared with the AMG Development Package upgrade that has been subsumed by this Edition 507. 0-60 is quoted at 4.1 seconds and top speed at 174 mph.
The Edition 507 borrows its aluminum hood from the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe, along with spidery new 19-inch wheels in either titanium gray finish or matte black with shiny rim flanges. As seen on our gallery car above, a sports striping package is also featured, as are glossy black grille, daytime running lamps, spoiler and mirror caps.
The Aston Martin Lagonda SUV concept revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show didn't earn the plaudits the company is used to when it reveals new models, and it has lived an uncertain life ever since. Thought to have been scrapped along with the entire revival of the Lagonda brand, then thought to have been resurrected due to Chinese, Middle Eastern and Russian demand, another year passed before we heard more definitive talk about an Aston Martin expansion when AutoCar reported that the Lagonda could be built on one of Mercedes-Benz's AMG SUV platforms.

A report in Automotive News Europe indicates plans have gotten serious, its unnamed sources saying that the English carmaker is talking to Daimler "to extend their cooperation to building an SUV." Neither Daimler, Aston Martin nor Investindustrial, the managing partner among Aston Martin's ownership consortium, would comment. But with Investindustrial having pledged to expand the range, competitors like Bentley, Maserati and Lamborghini getting into the SUV racket and clear demand from current and future customers, it's easy to believe Aston Martin is working hard to put the pieces together.
One further potential bump on the road to an Aston SUV is the company's search for a new CEO. Ulrich Bez relinquished to top spot at the company at the end of 2013, and Aston reportedly will not finalize its model strategy without a new CEO in place.
The next time you're waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, see if you can spot a Porsche Cayenne or Panamera zipping between aircraft on the busy tarmac. The high-performance German vehicles aren't there practicing for an upcoming autocross; they are tasked with whisking some of the airline's most important customers between flights so they can keep their busy schedules intact.
Launched nearly two years ago, the program has proven popular with the automaker, airline and passengers as all benefit from the unique arrangement. Atlanta-based Porsche is able to showcase its cars to Delta's frequent-flying Medallion members, the airline is recognized for providing unusual perks to its high-value customers and those fortunate enough to be surprised with a quick lift are able to make connections without a stressful run through the terminal. Based on its success, the airline is rolling our similar programs in New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis this month.
And don't think Porsche is the only automaker working with an airline to entice its frequent flyers. Mercedes-Benz ran a program over the summer that offered purchasing and leasing incentives to MileagePlus Premier members of United Airlines, and the two are currently shuttling top fliers around Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the automaker's S-Class and GL-Class models.
