In Nicaragua, this condition of car may be the norm! A Diesel 190 may also be very rare there, so there may not be many to choose from. In the States, a car in that condition would definitely be a beater at best. Not sure what the exchange rate for their currency is, but 4-6 hundred American dollars will buy a car in that condition here.

Here in Nicaragua, people would call this 190d a beater.The only reason I would buy this 190d (if it has major problems in its engine) can expess itself as the following: 190 d's with a 5 speed stick shift find themselves hard to locate. I could probably place a wanted ad in the leading newspaper for a 190d with a 5 speed and I would probably not receive a reply. There is a 190d in way better condition for sale however it has an automatic transmission. I would like a 190d with a 5 speed manual transmission.

Go for it if it runs and drives.

5 speed 190D is rare everywhere. I only view the first few minutes of the video and that is enough for me. My 190D was really in similar conditions, as per my photos, but now is fully rehab. Let me give you some ideas of what the car was like.

1) rear window broken.
2) rodent nest in engine compartment. I bombed the inside of the car.
3) All panels need replacing
4) hood would not open
5) Windows, A/C, antenna, radio, paint shot
6) dash cracked
7) No temperature gauge plus other issues.
8) The only saving grace is some surface rust, no structure rust. Engine ran OK and car could be driven.

I doubt cars in Nicaragua would be cheap relative to income level so I cannot offer any opinion on the price over there. In US, I would definitely go for it if it is under $600.

Good luck.

Bob, I have to say I am impressed with what you have done. I have personally seen your car, and it does not look anything like those photos now. Maybe there is hope for that car in Nicaragua.
Eins, I suggest you buy both cars and make the best one the 5 spd, and keep the other for spares.

The car is clearly rough but once started it ran fine after a minute, probably needs a glow plug or two. I didn't watch the whole video.

I can only afford one 190d at the moment and the 190d with automatic transmission sells for US $ 2800. I want a 190d with a 5 speed stick shift. The engine of the 190d in the video at about 5:43 bounces when coming off revs. What causes the engine to bounce off revs and not idle right after revving?
