190 E 2.6 models are very reliable. The problems they have are valve guides/seals on early models and just the valve seals on the later 1989 and up. This is not a major repair but the car will have excessive oil consumption.
The other problem is the automatic climate control is suseptible to problems. Make sure it works properly on a vehicle that you are purchasing or factor it into the price. These cars will go for 100s of thousands of miles with routine maintenance.
