Do not buy a W210 3.0L diesel. There are more than a few owners on the forum here that regret buying one. (Including me) They have many, many problems including glow plugs, suspension bushings, Air Mass Meters, cracking dashes, engine seals and on and on. The gasoline cars seem better. The 3.0L turbo engine is terrific when running, but in our house, that was a rare event.
