Thanks for volunteering to answer questions for this forum....
I am a budget conscious Merc fan. I had a 190E, 2.6, 1991. I traded it to buy an SUV (Nissan). Now I miss the Mercedes and after extensive research, have zeroed down on following three options/cars:
1. 1998, E320, 127 k miles. Price: 4500 $. During test drive, I noticed, the temp gauge was going up in the range of 90-100. I drove only for <10 minutes. Noticed the fans were not blowing at all, which are situated in front of the radiator.
2. 1995, E320, 116 k miles. Price: 3000 $. Car is running good, as per the owner. I have not test driven it, but pics look good.
3. 1992, 190E, 200 k miles. Price 1600 $. A/C does not work. It makes some noise, while shifting gears or at the start. Otherwise, it drove OK. Everything else seems to be working.
If you have to buy a car for your own use, which one will you buy? I am going to get the 1998 one checked from Mercedes dealer, just for peace of my mind.
Do you advise any other thing I should check, etc?
I will really appreciate your help. If you can do me a favor and provide me with an email of an expert tech of Mercedes, who is willing to help; that also will be a big help.
You have a nice week-end, sir.
