'93 190E Hard shift from 1st to 2nd gear
I am considering the purchase of a 1993 190e 2.3 special edition (the green ones). The speakers are shot and the engine idles a little rough but my main concern is a hard (both physical and audible) shift out of first gear. The car only has 24,000 miles and looks to be in great condition otherwise. I know these cars have a history of hard shifting, but is there anything that I should look for in particular?
