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...

leaking resonator pipe with straight pipe

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.

It's been more than a year since we first saw the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 Bluetec unveiled at the 2012 New York Auto Show, but it looks like the compact diesel crossover is finally starting to roll into dealerships. Those wanting to buy a diesel GLK will only have to pony up an extra $1,500 over a base, gas-powered GLK350, as the GLK250's starting price is listed at $38,590 (*not including $905 destination charge).
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 11:01:00 EST
The turbocharged 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel produces 200 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, and Mercedes-Benz has also provided some fuel economy numbers for this model, with claimed EPA estimates of 24 miles per gallon city and 33 mpg highway. There is no listing for the GLK250 on the EPA's website yet, but the figures represent significant increase over the GLK350's lackluster 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway figures, which are for the rear-wheel drive model. The GLK250 comes standard with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system - a $2,000 option on GLK350 - meaning that if you want an all-wheel-drive version of the 2013 GLK, it's actually cheaper to opt for the diesel model. Head over to the Mercedes-Benz site for the full 2013 GLK-Class configurator.
Alex Rodriguez, in case you haven't heard, is seemingly the new Most Hated Man In Baseball, ostensibly replacing commissioner Bud Selig (for now). Rodriguez was slammed with a 211-game suspension due to his role in the MLB's latest steroid scandal in which "A-Roid," as fans have taken to calling the former superstar, was cited with steroid use and attempts to hide his involvement by "engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate" the investigation, according to the MLB's official report.
Wed, 13 Feb 2013 12:30:00 EST
Why is this on a car site, then? Because Rodriguez' name is attached Alex Rodriguez Mercedes-Benz in League City, TX. An Ad Age report cites Mercedes-Benz USA in saying that A-Rod owns "about half'" of the dealership. Mercedes, for what it's worth, isn't going to any to any lengths to distance itself from its dealership or its controversial namesake, saying, "We never promoted the fact that A-Rod owned a dealership, so there's really nothing to 'distance' ourselves from. And since his activity is not illegal but rather prohibited by MLB, there's nothing actionable here."
With the scandal still a fresh piece of news and A-Rod's pending appeal, it's difficult to tell what sort of effect, if any, his name will have on the dealership's sales. Ad Age contacted the GM of Alex Rodriguez Mercedes-Benz to get the dealership's view, but no calls were returned. According to Mercedes, any name change is up to Rodriguez and his partner(s) at the dealership. Somehow, though, we think A-Rod has other things to worry about beyond his dealership's name.
Fun coincidence. On the same day that Audi announces the unveiling of its new S3 Sportback at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz steals the spotlight by confirming that the all-new A45 AMG will also receive its official debut early next month. Starting life as the entry-level A-Class hatchback, the A45 AMG gets the full AMG treatment, which includes numerous performance, handling and styling upgrades.
Under the hood sits an AMG-tuned 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 breathing through a sport exhaust system helping the five-door produce 360 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired to a seven-speed AMG dual-clutch transmission and power is sent to the ground using 4Matic all-wheel drive. Mercedes-Benz says that the A45 AMG will be able to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in under 4.5 seconds and it will have a top speed of 155 mph; in the land of hot hatches, it doesn't get much hotter than that. For added performance and handling, AMG has retuned the A-Class' suspension and steering systems and equipped The A45 with a three-stage stability control system that is specific to this car.
Surprisingly, the exterior styling of the A-Class was already sporty enough that the new model doesn't receive too many changes to become the A45 AMG. The biggest alterations include black accents to the chin spoiler, rocker panels and mirror caps, black wheels with red-painted brake calipers and rectangular dual exhaust outlets. Inside, it doesn't take a trained eye to spot the differences. The flat-bottomed sport steering wheel and the numerous red accents throughout the cabin (including the seatbelts!) really help to make this AMG interior stand out; front passengers will also get sport bucket seats that appear to be more than supportive enough for even the most spirited driving conditions.
