Thoughts on MB 300TE

I was driving in a small Wisconsin town this afternoon and stopped to check out a MB for sale that caught my eye. It is a 1992 300TE 4matic with about 150,000 miles. The sign said they were asking $4,600. The body and interior looked in good condition. Body seems solid, no rust, clean interior, and new tires. I have no further information, but will try to post some photos I took with my cell phone.

I welcome any thoughts, comments, opinions, etc. this esteemed body might have on this year/model, and perhaps price/value. If we all think it is worth investigating, I might call the number on the for sale sign for more information.

Thank you.

I would ask in the W124 section. I can't remember if that is the year where the 4matic drive line could be very problematic and expensive.

I am in Waunakee ever other week and will be there next Monday & Tuesday if you want me to have a look at it and see what service records come with the car.
PM me you want any assistance at all.

I believe the 4matic in this particular year does present some problems and requires regular maintenance/repairs. However, I would say it would be worth looking at if well-maintained. I am located in Green Bay so depending on where the car is located I could help you out as well!

I actually found the car for sale and the OP never posted back. The car was sold, but I do not know who it was sold to or for how much.
