1991 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class Diesel 300D Turbodiesel 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought a 1991 model in Feb 2006 for $8000 with 99750 miles on the odometer. It was like a new car. Started almost instantly in temps down to 13F without needing the block heater, it may have performed the same in colder weather but that was as cold as we ever tested it. Has returned a steady 29-32 mpg's on every tank of diesel it has used. It now has over 280,000 miles on it and will go another 100K without a problem. This was my wife's daily transportation for getting to work. 1st she was driving 100 miles + daily to/from work and the 5 cyl diesel never missed a beat. I don't know how to explain this but the few times we have had a problem Battery died, water pump started leaking, etc) they appeared when the car was in the garage or driveway.
I only wish I could find another, similar Mercedes Diesel! IMO, the W123 and W124 300D Turbo is the best car Mercedes has made.

Review

This vehicle is an excellent choice for
anyone wanting a great car for little
money. This car sold for 50K when new.
It has 225K miles on it and still runs
like new. It is tight with no rattles
or squeeks found in domestic vehicles
less than 2 years old. The fuel economy
is 32 MPG HWY and 23 MPG city. This car
looks like a 50K car and cost less than
a used Honda.


Best Features

Fuel Economy... confort... smooth ride...central locking system.


Worst Features

More power, better plastic on fog lamp covers,
