1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300TD Turbodiesel 4dr Sedan
Have over 40K miles in this car and love it. This is my 2nd MB diesel, having previously owned a 1983 300D and there is a world of difference between the two. First of all, you will not be able to tell you are driving a diesel since the engine clatter and smoke are all but gone. I get between 33-34 mpg on the highway and about 30 mpg in town.
The car is quiet and very reliable having been to the dealer only once for a leaky oil line which occurred in the first month of ownership.
