I would buy another CLK, I was looking at them on eBay last night. I'd change colors (white or silver) and get a 430 in the newest W208 body style I could find.

Just looked at your profile pic, I really like your wagon. That's another Mercedes I'd like to own or a 90s BMW wagons.

Buy used again? Probably not.

Ever Benz has the same common problem,

Why can't we get our Benz's on the 10 Best Cars in C & D.
The 3 Series BMW have a great drivers car.
16 years on the 10 best list!!
There are a ton of great cars out there!! And most Benz's are also....

I would buy another w123 and nothing but. I wouldn't dare waste my money on the new pieces of junk that wouldn't last near as long as the older ones.

'79 280CE with 226,000 miles
'76 240D 4 speed with 190,000
'85 300D Turbo with 266,000 miles


GONE but not forgotten
'76 300D with 195,300 miles
"83 300D with 174,000 miles

Of the ten or so mercedes I have had (new and old) none have been problematic. Sure there were things here and there but nothing reliability wise. I don't think they are up to rwd Lexus levels of longevity anymore, but they have a far better performance/aestheitics line up. The fwd based Lexus just don't do anything for me.
