RE: Should I buy it? 1986 190E 2.3
When i was looking for a new mercedes a close family friend who owned a mercedes shop and also sold then wouldnt even let me touch a 190 he said that everything goes wrong and you will pay more for repairs in a year than you paid for the car in the first place .. so i went somewhere els againt his wishes and paid 5grand for one and guess what ? nothing but problems .. way to expincive to fix and the little things here and there will kill your wallet..so i went for a 190 diesel model and again same thing the 300D/300E are alot better and a little bigger..i finally found a 300SD and i would reconmend the S class lots of room , comfortable ( if you travel alot as i do) great gas mileage and compaired to the 190 its next to nothing to maintain and repair..but if you do want it bad enough have it checked out a few times by different shops..so there is my 2cents !
