This $2,350 Mercedes-Benz Wagon Is the Ultimate Classic Daily Driver

Yep they sure don,t built them like this anymore.

When car enthusiasts talk about old Mercedes-Benzes it always comes out wistful — a twinkle in the eye and a “they don’t make ’em like they used to” tone, which probably has to do with how often they throw around the word “over-engineered.” Usually it’s the classic, dogmatic old-Merc screed about building a car to a standard not a cost, and a manufacturing ethos that places value on quality and reliability. And they’re right — mostly.

Hence, the myth of the bulletproof Mercedes-Benz. As I own a 1990 Mercedes 300TE wagon, built on the purportedly indestructible W124 chassis and regarded as one of the last of the “over-engineered” Benzes, I can attest that rumors of its reliability have been greatly exaggerated. In my month-and-a-half of ownership I’ve had to take the car to my mechanic twice; both times he handed the key back and said, “I’m sure I will see you again soon” in his vaguely Eastern European accent.
