NO, there was always the choice of
4-speed auto trans (and 5-speed man trans).
The usual things like odometer fraud ,
the ignition lock, the effect of the
emergency brake etc.
Also check the awful single-blade wiper,
when it is too slow it sooner or later
will stop working, means a lot of money
Also check if the electric closing mechanism
of the tailgate functions well.
eats brakes and rotors. I'm about out of the extended warranty on my
95 E320, so will be switching to after-market parts which allegedly
last longer (well, allegedly because I personally can't say anything
about them, but the stock Merc pads and rotos get chewed up).
Then the usual stuff from the group : head gasket, wiring harness,
motor mounts, water pump, probably a couple more (I've had them all so
would have to look up the service orders).
Nice car. Just did the leather a couple of weeks ago and marveled and
how the rug rats failed to destroy the interior, despite their best
efforts. Solid ride and handling. Great cargo room.
We have an E280T in the Family. 1995. 200000km on the clock, no Rust (we
also have a W210 E430T from 1999 which has Rust on the doors an is already
traded in for a new W211 E320T CDI), runs absolutly fine. The gearboxes are:
Automatic: 5 Speed, at least the later models.
I also had an 300TD T fro 1991, it had a Fourspeed Automatic transmission, I
sold it 1995 with 275000 km....;-)
