Newbie looking to buy a TD estate
Im thinking of chopping in the old toyota avensis estate td for something like a c250 td estate or similar size.
The toyota has served us well (other half and the 2 dogs) and never let us down and is super reliable and just coming up to 170k miles, apart from general maintenance all thats been done is clutch and cv joint and a regass.
Ive had other cars including many bmws etc.
My question is will something like a 98 c250td be as reliable? Are there any main faults to check? Is the 2.5 td unit the same as the bmw one?
Are the electrics as bad as some people say?
Ive always fancied a merc but been a little scared to own one.
Im very hands on and look after my own cars - 94 supra twin turbo 6speed, 95 celica st205 gt4 etc so am not scared of changing a clutch or cam belt etc.
Just some advice for the new guy if you would be so kind.
Im near bristol
