Presently, I have a 1990 190E with about 80,000 miles on it--I've had a lot of problems. The local MB dealership has a 1992 300E 4Matic with 38,000 miles for sale. I know the 300E is a very fine automobile, but am I going from the frying pan into the fire? I've heard the 4-wheel drive is problematic and expensive to repair. Your opinions are very much appreciated! Oh, the price is $22,000.

Thanks,

Matt

Click on "search" in the upper right hand corner of this page and search for "4Matic". There are about 15 posts regarding the 4Matic that might help you.

The 300E is a much better car than the 190 in my opinion, but I do not like the 4-matic option unless it is needed by the driver. If you live in a snowy place or ice, then OK.
