I mentioned the tach/clock mostly because the clock (which can be unsoldered from the tach) is a common failure item on the W201.

Other frequently mentioned failure items on the W201 are the window regulators (lifts) because of their design in aluminum, which tends to twist and stress/fail/

Road & Track did an Owner's Survey and found these common problem areas:

Brake pads
Air conditioning
Window lifts
Interior parts
Brake rotors
Computer controlled sensors
Central door locks
Exterior body parts
Water pump
Fuel injection
