1999 Mercedes E300 Turbodiesel
I've owned the car for the last 3 years (40,000 miles) Has 205k now.
Never had any major problems
In time time I've owned it I've done
-new motor mounts
-new glow plugs
-fuel injectors cleaned
-new intake gasket
-all new fuel filters
-new ceramic brake pads front/rear
-oil changes always done with mobil 1 turbo diesel synthetic
-freshly detailed (2-10-11)
Never had any major problems, just maintenance items.
Right now the car has 2005 Chrysler Crossfire 19" rear and 18" front staggered wheels. They fit perfect with no rubbing and the car has a nice sporty feel/drive.
I bought this when gas was ~$5 a gallon since the car gets over 30mpg. I wanted a cool car that was big and got over 30mpg, I couldn't find anything that was more perfect than this car in my price range. I had to drive a couple states away to get it since there aren't many of them, and its a bit of a rare car.
