Sixto, didn't that particular diesel engine have problems and had to be pulled off the US market?

At least that is what someone told me while I was looking for our '89 300TE.

Normally the last year of a production run would be the better car.

I suppose that it is a matter of engine preference; M103 vs. M104.
