The deisel that wasn't
By jwkrotec on


1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300D 4dr Sedan


The new 4 valve deisel is a work of
art. There is plenty of power for
accelerating and the broad tourque
curve makes highway cruising at 75
effortless. Unforntunately, many
little problems with various systems
have had the car spending days at the
dealer. The dealer took several tries
to get it right each time! very bad.
At 95,000 miles the legendary Mercedes
deisel stopped! I was informed that
the bad fuel in this country gummed up
the vanes in the induction unit and it
cost $3,500 to repair. This is
rediculous. One buys a deisel to
prevent this sort of thing.
