Asking $1900.00 (OBO)
I acquired this car in March 2009 from my Professor as a potential 2nd vehicle; as he no longer had room for (3) MB's. The body is in good shape for a 20 y/o car, though of course it does have a few small scratches on the bumpers. It is a Southern car (TX & NC), therefore there is no rust. All original, only 127,510 miles. Maintenance records are available dating back to 2001.
In the interest of being up front and honest.......
* Engine is very strong and car starts easily. Since I've had the car, the following items have been repaired/replaced: New valve cover gaskets, transmission service [fluid flush/fill, filter, etc.], driver side rear power window regulator, new brakes all around [pads/rotors].
* Interior is clean and seats are in good shape, given their age.
* Heated, power front and rear seats
* All windows, sunroof and seats work perfectly.
*No accident damage that I know of. I have had no accidents and I see no signs that it has ever been involved in an accident, though there are a few scratches on the bumpers.
* Newer tires.
The 'Not so Good':
*Though the car is completely drivable and is driven 2x/wk, it may need transmission work. On occasion, it is sometimes hesitant to shift from 3rd to 4th gear - it waits until 3.5-4k to shift to do so.
*Unsure if A/C works. It was converted to R134A in '01, though I have not used/tried to use. It's been a relatively mild summer and my commute is only 14 miles roundtrip.
*Slightly higher resting idle (1100 instead of 750-800), but the engine runs strong and accelerates easily.
I would not recommend driving long distances, given the potential transmission issue. Obviously, I'm no mechanic, though from what mine (Frank's MBZ Service - Lansing) has informed me, the car will need minor work to be 100%.
The ONLY reason for selling is that, I just don't have the time or will to deal with the car. Between work and school, it [car] simply isn't a priority. My MINI is more economical to drive.
I will answer any inquiry as honestly and completely as I can. The car runs and drives well, given its issues. It does have current Ohio registration as well as a clear title.
It's a great car and it deserves to be fixed up and driven regularly.
