So I fell in love with the 300SE
I'm not a Mercedes owner yet, but I've been looking for a while. I finally saw an ad for a 1991 300SE with 70k miles on it. I stopped and looked at her today and she is beautiful inside and out. The problems I saw on the interior was the rear window control sticks, but does work and the AC isn't blowing ice cold air.
The guy who has it for sale said it bought it from a friend who got it for his dad who died the day after he bought it. The current owner had to read the manual to know how to do everything including starting the car. When he did start it, he had to hit the gas a couple of times to keep it running. Could this be just from sitting?
These are the only things I noticed, but I'm not a pro and will have it inspected before I purchase.
I did run an Autocheck, and it checked out fine there.
Are there things I should look out for particularly for this car? I'm green and have:
A. Never owned a Mercedes (but lusted all of my life!)
B. Am not a DIY gal.
