1991 Mercedes-Benz 350-Class 350SDL Turbodiesel 4dr Sedan
this was my 3rd turbo diesel... i researched it hard and even called my MBZ mechanic about this model before purchase. he neglected to tell me about the head issue common on these models! blew the head gasket on the way back from picking it up. car had only 42K miles on it. cost me many thousand of dollars to repair... needless to say, i sold it shortly there after.
everything.. looks, drive, etc.. there is nothing like these old S classes with all the windows open, sunroof pulled back and hitting the open highway. i cant think of a more fun car to drive from san diego to palm springs in!
a new engine.. guess it was all covered back then by warranties and recalls but its a lost cause now.
