i've been a member of this website since august, when i bought my '78 300D. it's my first car and love it, but i don't know if i can afford to keep maintaining it. it seems like every weekend, something else little goes wrong, whether it be a thermostat, alternator, window switches, etc. i know this is normal for a W123, but this car sucks all of my funds when i only have time to work every other weekend. plus, diesel's $4+ now
so i put her up on craigslist. i'm hoping to get $4,000 for sadie, so i'm looking to get something else for a little less, since i'm in a little bit of debt. she has 150,000 miles and she's in great shape. however, i'd really like to get into another benz. i just love the build quality and that feeling you get driving one
what models might be a good cheap daily driver for a college student? i'm trying to get into something with decent mileage and minimal maintainence (i know all cars need maintainence, my brother's a mechanic so basic things can be done in the driveway) i was looking at 560sel, 300e, and c280 to name a few. i just thought this would be a good place to get some opinions.
