I Just bought 190E, 2.6 yesterday (used lot), dealer sold me car but did not point out what's wrong with car. I love the handling and comfort features of the car but I am worried about the mileage on car(171K). I also found out that it is costly ($400.00) to fix the door lock which will not lock. The reviews from others here, helped me to relax about the mileage and made me feel like part of the Benz family because I do have oil leaks and yellowed headlight glass! Thank you all for your input and reviews. I have never owned a Mercedes and I look forward to enjoying the car with peace of mind about what is the norm for this model and make of car and also in knowing that I can come here for info
Moon roof, power seats, the get up and go when accelerating
MPG, better paint protectant coating to avoid the faded sun damaged surface. Better quality head lamps to prevent yellowing.
I can't believe my car runs over 180K
Miles since it is very solid and
reliable. Parts are readily available
many places including web-sites. Small
negative is the oil leakage. It seems
most of the car in the same style have
the same problem. Still it has
excellent value for the price.
- Solid chasis
- Reliable engine
- Parts availability
I bought the car last month and sold my old 1979 300SD. The 190E 2.6 IS th
best driving car I have ever owned. Handling and acceleration are fine tuned
so that whether you want a quiet sunday drive or an exilerating country road
sporty drive you get it all. The design of this car is virtually timeless. I have
people ask me all the time if the car is a '98 or a 95. Anyone considering a
190E 2.6 that is in good shape should buy it regardless of the mileage
because odometer numbers mean NOTHING to a BENZ.
