Man that's a nice car or they've edited the photos so that it looks spotless. A MILLION MILES in a SD(L).lol I think he meant to put SD. Someone should e-mail him and ask him about the bent rod problems. Also let him know that it'll never get 1 MILLION MILES

According to most ebay seller's these cars are good for 500k with little maintaince. So with maintaince 1mill should be no problem!


This saying should be in ebay's format for diesel MB's. "these cars are known to go 500k"

Any car will go 1 million miles. Just a matter of throwing time and money at it!

What's the record for a Yugo? I know they were falling apart in the showrooms, because of the excellent quality control...

I would bet 32,000 is likely the record before it rusted away or enough parts fell off the owner abandoned it along the road.
