What do u think of a 1989 300E with 160000miles on it? Are there any
importang aspect that needs to be looked at when buying a car of this
By the way this model use premium gasoline right? What kind of damage does
it do to the engine if you pour ordinary low grade gas into it? How long
it take for the damage to ruin the car? I plan to buy one of this
car/model year and drive for a couple years then junk yard it so don't plan
long long term of keeping it. As long as it drives for a few years if I
pour normal gas (non-premium) into it. With the gas price now a day, I
savings on gas over so many years will be enough to buy another junk
mercedes by the time I junk this one. LOL
I don't think mercedes cars are going to be for you with that mentality.
They occasionally require expensive service, especially when you are
talking about a vehicle with as long a service life as you are.
I recommend a Nissan Sentra.
Actually I think you might be right on the ball. I mean appreciate the
mercedes but at this
time maybe its not the right time to own one. However perhaps a few years
from now. I mean
the car is outstanding if one is ready financially to own such a beauty. I
guess its gonna be a Honda Accord me. :-(
"ready financially"? Most of the people on this group
couldn't afford to drive these cars if they had to
be "ready financially" to own them. We've had a number of these
cars in our family, we drive them because they are cheaper and more
reliable in the long run. If you buy a badly maintained POS, then that's
different story. Get a diesel, those cars are happy with the one choice
of fuel that's available now (at least for now)
Huh? I've heard stories about these cars sacrificing themselves and protectng the
owner as well as any other mb. THey may not have seat belts but I'm not too
sure their crash dynamics are no good.
You can always add seabelts.

:-) nah, I'll stick with the heckflosse, too bad it's not a diesel!
BTW I'm planning on filling up with vegetable oil for a test run (300D), is it
true that it might be hard to start the engine on
pure cooking oil?
