I joined this forum to learn more about mercedes. im a 21 year old girl from jersey. my baby (dark gray 1992 190e 2.6L) just died on me for the 3rd time and ive finally accepted that its pointless to keep fixing it. major problems (one power window worked, i blew a fuse nearly every day- particularly in the rain, it stalled out unless i revved the gas even when braking, you name it)
It costs me at least a grand to fix it each time it breaks... and this time is no different, I believe the fuel injector is broken, it needs a battery, and the wires to the engine are stripped and frayed. It has spark, the starter works, and it tries to start- but no turn over. not getting fuel to the engine.
anyway, i had to quickly buy a bucket of bolts chrysler to get to school. so i'm saving up to buy a new benz. i had my 190e for 4 years and it was the greatest car EVER. i know im not a millionaire with an SLR McLaren...but my 190 was the best. I like the look of the older benz(es) ...the 1980's 400's etc, but i know thats a bad move when i know it'l just give me problems. so i think i want a kompressor hatchback, but i'm not sure. so i just wanna read what all you folks have to say about your cars. i love mercedes, i can't wait to get a new one (likely next year haha) but until then, i just keep staring at my busted 190e in my driveway
