I have a 1983 300TD which I took delivery of in Jan 1984. It was a replacement for the original one which was stolen in Paris two days after I took delivery of it at the factory in Stuttgart. It has 280,000 miles and the engine has never been opened. Supreme mechanical reliability.
The electrical system however is a different story. It is almost as good as those produced by Lucas. From new, for example, the instrument illumination has never worked (extremely dim) and two different dealerships were unable to fix it. Thank God it it is a diesel, I hate to think what would happen if it needed to light up spark plugs.
