Bye to Sweds' hello Mercedes
Hi, with the wife's 3 different rear end accidents, we tucked her in Volvo cars the last 3-4 yrs, 850 wgn's thru xc V70, mostly for the safety of side airbags. Sunday we looked at a older '99 E320 that was just so clean and "New to You". Please tell me it's a safe car, looks safe. Only issue is the trans. Sometimes doesn't shift high gear when hot, doesn't slip, just skips it all together. I'll address this later in proper category if needed. 205K
Not new to MB. After moving to Va. from NH in '87 we've had several diesels from '78 240D to '87 300SDL, rebuilt 3 engines and a trans. Restored a '82 300SD. Also had '76 450SEL.
Great to be a part of the site. Hope I'll have something to contribute!
