'95 E300 rear-ended at 50 mph
I was in a traffic jam on a Dallas highway (I35 Stemmons northbound just north of LBJ) when I slowed for a traffic jam. A red Ford F150 didn't see it and plowed into me at 50 mph. The force of the blow made me slam into the Chevy pick-up in front of me. In all, five cars in front of the F150 hit one another from the force of the blow.
My '95 E300 Diesel was totalled.[:(] It was a great car with 150,000 miles on it. I intended to drive it 400,000 miles and I bet the car would have done it.
Be that as it may, the car behaved as designed. The front and rear were demolished, but the passenger compartment remainded pristine. Outside of a mild concussion from my head snapping, I'm fine. Its the best advertisement I can think of for Benz safety.
I really shudder to think what would have happened had I been in my old Maxima...[xx(]
