190D 2.2 purchase question?
I tend to help a lot of people with vintage vehicles and what not, but since I am not as experience with the more modern ones, that's why I am posting here.
Times are hard with gas since I run two 4.5L V8 Merc's and a car has really caught my eye and I will be travelling 3 hours to see it.
It is a 1985 190D 2.2.
It has 260,000 Kms/162,000 miles on it.
Leather interior in good condition that is "fully loaded". The body has no rust on it. He said that it was "very rare".
All this for $3,900 CDN/2,896 US
What I want to know is are the 190's a good car? Anyone have extensive experience with them and the diesel engine? Does it sound like a good solid buy? Are the rust perforation techniques significantly improved from the W123?
Any comments welcome, really!
Thanks a million in advance!
