Post 1992 300SE

Hi. Just sold my Wrangler yesterday and now I have nothing with 4 wheels. I was thinking Mercedes. I need something reliable and good on gas. 20 plus is ok for me. I found a nice example with 92,700 mi and it is pretty much flawless. This car speaks to me, but I don't want to do anything stupid which I am resoundly known for when it comes to buying used vehicles. I am mechanically inclined if this is an issue. I do all of my maintaining myself. Anyway, the price is $7000 by owner. Anyone out there have any experience with this car? She has a V-6 too, which is good. I don't think I would want a V-8 model.

Sory, but if a 1992 Mercedes has a six it's an inline 6 and not a V6.

But, Mercedes were NOT "good on gas" until the V6 did arrive ... which was '96 in E-class and perhaps never in USA S-class.

That's a W124 so check with that forum. At $7000 that car better be as close to perfect as it gets. Good luck, they are nice rides and very well built compared to some newer ones.
