Is the W124 Still a Reliable Choice? [OC - Video]

A couple weeks ago we were invited to test drive a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300E with AMG kit. As is the case with all the videos we produce now, we include a buyer's guide and detailed information about these cars throughout the video. To do so we need to research the cars. The owner's provide plenty of information about their specific car, but we like to cover as much as we can.

So a big thank you goes out to this community, which surprised me with how active it is in comparison to other generation of cars on other enthusiast forums. You guys here really love your W124s! And I hope that I was accurately able to represent this car in the video we published this morning.

We hope the videos we produce like this will help people who are interested in learning more about the W124 or in the market to buy one. We were surprised at how many great examples are out there on the road still! So much so that we had offers from a few other owners to have their W124s reviewed, one convertible happening this week.

Our hope is to film at least 2 more in total then provide a full Buyers Guide video on the car. So please let me know if I might have gotten anything wrong during this video, or if I missed any critical information that would be important for subsequent videos. It's one thing to research problems and complaints on a forum, but it's another to live with them! As much as we'd like to own and live with a W124 to get the full picture, we'd have to buy every car we film. I'd like that, but my wife would murder me.

Hope you enjoy our trip back to 1988 with this video, we really enjoyed making it!

That was a really well done review, though the example was a bit rough. My '93 300D has working A/C, but you'd have to come to!
