Talking

SOMEWHERE IN THIS FORUM I READ A LONG TIME AGO SOMETHING SOMEBODY WROTE ABOUT THE 300E CHASIS, AND IT SAID IT WAS THE BEST USED CAR ANYBODY COULD HAVE.
I HAVE A 1987 300E EURO WITH 177000 KMS,IT IS MY FOURTH MBZ.
1-1983 240D OUTSTANDING CAR ON RELIABILITY
2-1984 190 VERY AGILE AND FUN TO DRIVE
3-1987 190E16V A HOOT TO DRIVE BUT A BIT DELICATE SUSPENTION
BUT ALL GREAT CARS
THE 300E IS THE ONE IVE HAD THE LONGEST,4 YEARS AND THERE ISNT A BAD THING I COULD SAY ABOUT THIS CAR.
I LIVE IN COSTA RICA, CENTRAL AMERICA WHERE BY THE WAY THERE ARE MORE MBZ PER CAPITA THAN I EVER SAW IN THE STATES. THIS CAR HOLS UP TO BAD GAS, BAD ROADS AND BAD DRIVERS (wife) LIKE NOTHING ELSE, THEY ARE EASY TO WORK ON-
BRAKES,SUSPENTION,TUNE UP AND DOWN HERE PARTS ARE CHEAPER THAN FOR HONDAS AND TOYOTAS AND IM SURE ITS THE SAME WAY UP NORTH.
BOTTOM LINE IS, IF YOU FIND A GOOD LOW MILEAGE 300E THAT HAS HAD GOOD MAINTENANCE AND TLC BUY IT.
THERE ARE ALSO 260Es WHICH A FRIEND OF MINE HAS AND ALTHOUGH ITS A SIX CYLINDER IT DOESNT DO IT FOR ME.
IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS BE SURE TO TALK TO US.
