1995 Mercedes-Benz E300 Diesel with 70k miles

A friend of mine emailed me a few days ago asking for my advice on hybrid vehicles, specifically the Honda Accord and Ford Fusion. They may be good enough vehicles, but these are models I haven’t paid much attention to. Much like the ubiquitous SUV that towers over my Cooper S in traffic, I don’t have an opinion on these cars. I just don’t give them the time of day, as they do not suit my needs. But, if people would like to rephrase the question around fuel economy, I have one word: diesel.

There are a good amount of new generation, clean diesel models available to US consumers these days, from Volkswagen TDIs to Audi A8s to Chevrolet Cruzes. But if you don’t mind dabbling in the modern classics for a bit, the W124 Mercedes-Benz E class was a near constant in the market when it came to the diesel engine, when few manufacturers were employing the technology. This late model 1995 E300 for sale in Portland, Oregon has 70,000 miles, mere childs’ play when it comes to the longevity of Mercedes’ diesel engines.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300D E300 Diesel Sedan Low 70K Mi. Immaculate Condition, Super Low 70,321 Original Miles, 1 Owner, Auto Temp Control, Power Driver Seat, Power Sunroof.

This spectacular Black on Gray Leather 1995 Mercedes-Benz E300D Diesel Sedan has been carefully driven and maintained, and is in excellent overall condition. With production of the W124 E-Class finally coming to an end in 1996 after 11 years, this 1995 E300D is a tribute to the craftsmanship, durability, and longevity of this coveted Mercedes model. Nearing 20 years old, this E-Class still looks almost brand new. This car is a rare find that won’t remain in the showroom long!


It’s near impossible to find one of these late model W124 diesels with this kind of mileage in this condition. While a lot of these sedans are still on the road, few have escaped unscathed like this one. Most wear the scars of the everyday grind and long haul januts across the country that remind people of the glory days of Mercedes-Benz. Cars that were engineered to a point, not a price. Not surprisingly, the asking price here is a bit more than what you would normally consider reasonable for a W124 sedan of this era. I can imagine this E300 Diesel making some commuter very satisfied as he passes the errant Prius, knowing that not only is he conserving fuel, but has a durable good that will be around for a long time after the hybrid visits the big recycling center in the sky.

    Price could very well be on the mark. This is an incredibly good looking, comfortable and competent vehicle. The engine is possibly good for the rest of the next owner’s lifetime. For new car money there is no comparison in today’s market. If you’re looking for an alternative efficient daily driver but don’t want to sacrifice space and style, this about as good as it gets, other than the earlier 2.5 td, which are becoming very difficult to find, at least with under 100k miles. Nice find GCFSB.

    Beautiful car and, for once, the asking price is very fair.

    This car will easily sell.

    Hey there,
    be “aware”: it’s a TURBO Diesel.
    How can you see? Well, there is the air intake for the charger front-right (see?) => turbo

    …and these turbos are not that durable than the ones without…well, and need much more attention for maintenance…
    just to mention this (again and again) 😉

    Pretty sure that’s MB-Tex, not leather.

    I actually own of these cars and I can already see some things that I might want a few answers for before I bought this car considering how much higher this is going for than a well used E300 Diesel.

    If you take a look at the coolant reservoir the level of the coolant is too high, the normal level is suppose to be at where the top and bottom are bonded and it’s a very unusual color for the coolant. OE Mercedes coolant is bright red.

    I’d also be interested in having more detailed and close photos of the engine bay but clearly that’s not going to happen.

    I also just noticed this car also don’t have the heated seats.. Back in 1995 it was a $1,500+ option.

    Re: Kai: This car has an OM606, it’s naturally aspirated. It doesn’t have a turbo.

    You would be correct, that is Mb tex (fake leather)
