A Good Price or Not??

I purchased a 1990 300D about 2 weeks ago now and have driven it 3000 miles already. Have averaged 34 miles per gallon and no troubles what so ever. Everything works on the car and its in excellent condition all around. I paid $3000 for it (186,000 miles),,,I love the car....was it a good price????

Thanks for any input,,,,,,,,

You will find out if it was a good price after 12 months of use.

I think that was an excellent price as long as there are no deffered maintenance issues.....Like Brian said 3,000 miles is not long enough to find all the little gremlins that may be lurking.

yup great price. Diesels are at a premium right now. You should be able to get that out of it when you sell it if it is in ok shape. A decent 1982-85 300D T would cost that much and I doubt their prices will go much lower especially if fuel continues to be this high. My first car was a 1984 300 CD T and second was a 1983 300D T. The next generation (W124) was miles ahead IMO unless you wanted to enter a demolition derby. Granted some people have a diesel fetish or something so you may not be into gas cars but if you haven't already take a drive in a 400E or 500E. Those two cars are the best for the money IMO + you can get about 28-30mpg on the highway with the 400E. I look at people buying a Taurus, or Corolla or something and just shake my head. I would take my old 300 CD over those cars.

You might be able to flip that car for a $3000.00 profit. Maybe more.

Autotrader.com - Search for '90-93 300Ds and compare prices.
