New to the site, with a question already.

I am new to the site, I have a 1985 380SE that I love, i will post pics later. I found the site while looking for some info so maybe one of you can help. I just test drove a 1991 190e 2.6 with 156.000 miles. The car is in very good condition inside and out, however, the transmission slips in reverse. It will still get you moving but is very soft, seems the longer you drive the car softer it gets in reverse. All forward gears worked well. From what I have read, it will most likely need a transmission or some serious repair work. I believe I can buy the car for $1500.00. So... it is worth the risk? Outside the tranny issue ecerything works, no rust, no dents and the motor runs like a new one.
