I have a 86 190D 2.5 but not turbo. This car is also a stick shift, very rare.

Compared to my other two benz. I like it cause of the stick, but do not like the size or model.

It is a 190 so its not all that great, and its a small car. But time for the good news.

Mine gets about 30-35 MPG (keep in mind its a stick and non turbo). Its an ok car. I have sentimental value in it cause it was given to me by my dad when i was 16 years old.

That motor's proven to be quite durable & dependable. It's the same one as in my '92 300D 2.5turbo and is widely used. It's no rocket, but it generates adequate power in my car; even better in a smaller/lighter 190 chassis.
