This vintage Mercedes will typically do well over 300000 miles. 5k
miles on rebuilttransmission.Ask any Mercedes-Benz mechanic about
the 1993-95 E-Class (W124): this is the last truly hand-built
Mercedes Benz with structural integrity and a build quality
unsurpassed. The straight 6-cylinder is considered by many MBZ
enthusiast to be the best-built MBZ motor not an aluminum block but
cast steel with chrome-moly linings. It outperformed contemporary
sports cars like the Porsche 944 and IROC Camaro with a top speed
of 140 mph and 0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds. The E-Class was faster than
the larger S-Class 380 and 500 models but could also be driven
carefully to manage 30 mpg on the highway.Due to the high cost of
German Engineered build-quality the W124 was designed to last many
miles with awards actually given for high mileage versions at
1000000 miles. This unique characteristic of ownership explains the
surprising number still on the road. Cost cutting became critical
in the mid/late 90s as the "no expense spared" over-engineered
Mercedes-Benz models with a solid construction and the use of
quality materials struggled to sell against mass-build Japanese
high end cars. Much of the 124's engineering and many of its
features were advanced automotive technology at its introduction
incorporating innovations that have been adopted throughout the
industry. It had one of the lowest coefficients of drag (Cd) of any
vehicle of the time (0.28) due to its aerodynamic body which
included plastic molding for the undercarriage to streamline
airflow beneath the car reducing fuel consumption and wind noise.
