Re: Newer Diesel Model Recommendations?
The last year for the Diesel was 1999, the E 300 TurboDiesel sedan. Even used these are commanding a huge premium. The car he has should do him well as long as the transmission holds out. The engine is good with routine maintenance for 500,000. If he wants a 'newer' model, look at the 1995 E 300 Diesel--not turbo-charged and very reliable. Plan to pay 18,000 for a good one. Too pricey? Find a late 80's 300 SDL. Huge car, still economical. Plan to pay $8,500 for a good one. I have owned at least one of each of these and can tell you the one he has is the easiest to maintain.
