Mercedes Benz E300 1989 Buyer's advise

Hello All,

I'm planing to buy a Mercedes E300 1989 automatic. I am not sure how is this car performance and if I could have any problem or issue later on. Can someone advise if it would be an intelligent purchase?

Current Price $5,500 uds. / The car is located in Costa Rica / Central America.

Thanks for your advise.

Is it a diesel? I bought 87 model for my son this spring.
Even buying old Mercedes can be rewarding (I paid $2,000) it is not for everybody.
20+ years old car is rarely something you can buy and drive without doing anything.
That said, I am very happy with 87, who I borrow from my son occasionally. Took me some work to fix the leaks, restore vacuum system and fix some cosmetic issues, but it is good for another 20 years.
Study the given links and if you are not ready, better pass it.
