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
hood star (really, what's the point of owning a Benz without a hood star?)
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.

Most automakers have realized by now that a good infotainment system is a must-have feature for many buyers, and have, as a result, invested increasing amounts of time and money developing these technologies. But some automakers are going above and beyond in-car entertainment and navigation technology by focusing on wearable technology as well.
Mon, 10 Feb 2014 09:30:00 EST
Nissan has emerged as one such company, developing its own alternative to Google Glass and performance-oriented smartwatch. But Mercedes-Benz is also putting itself at the forefront of wearable tech - not by developing competing products to those designed by dedicated tech companies, but by working with them. The German automaker, as we recently reported, is developing its own app for Google Glass, and is now doing the same with smartwatches as well.
Set to be unveiled at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Mercedes has collaborated with Pebble Technologies to develop the Digital DriveStyle app. The system will display tell its wearer where the car is, whether the doors are locked and if it needs fuel. Inside the car it'll alert the driver to potential hazards coming up on the road, while making functions like re-routing the nav system, controlling the audio system or activating Siri that much easier.
With the official debut for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe expected tomorrow, it shouldn't be a surprise that some clicky fingers have already managed to uncover an official image of the car before the unveiling. Outside of this sole image, though, there's precious little detail on the new car.
Thu, 01 May 2014 12:45:00 EST
First posted by Autofilou and then picked up by WorldCarFans, the production S-Class Coupe isn't far off from the concept car we saw a few months back in Frankfurt. Like the concept, the leggy production model appears related, albeit distantly, to the S-Class Sedan. The hood and front fascia are longer and lower, befitting of a two-door, while the character lines in the profile are more pronounced. Obviously, the beltline and slim, B-pillarless greenhouse are coupe-only items. We can't see any details on the back of the car, although it does appear that the long hood has a correspondingly short rear deck.
We'll have all the details on the official replacement for the CL-Class when it makes its full debut tomorrow. Until then, what do you think of this lone image? Does it appear that Mercedes has got it right? In terms of design, where would you rank this with the departing CL-Class? Have your say in Comments.
While the automotive world is focusing on the twentieth anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death, there was much, much more to the legendary driver than his untimely passing at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.
XCAR has the story of a younger Senna, who, by a stroke of luck, found himself matched up against a veritable dream team of nine Formula One champions, not to mention a cadre of German touring car aces. A "probably still pissed (drunk)" James Hunt, hard-driving Niki Lauda and future champion and rival Alain Prost, were in attendance for the one-off, spec race, which was put on by Mercedes-Benz, in honor of the opening of the Nürburgring's Grand Prix circuit. And Senna was on hand with the explicit goal of besting them all.
Each driver was handed a lightly modified, but brand-new 190E 2.3-16 Cosworth, a car that can best be though of as the distant ancestor of the lovable C63 AMG. As for the race itself, well, it was sort of like an introduction of what the sport could come to expect from the Brazilian.
