1992 Mercedes 400E - $3000

I will start off by saying that I buy and sell cars on the side as a hobby and a way to earn extra money. I mostly deal with German cars, but I am always open to other makes and models. This is one of the best riding and driving cars I have ever had to sell. It justs eats up the road. The suspension is super tight and the motor sounds awesome when you step on it.

1992 Mercedes 400E
190300 Miles
Automatic
275hp V8 - Gets 24mpg on the highway and 18 around town.(I just read 268hp somewhere so I'm not positive about the HP Number.)
Power Windows, Seats, mirrors, and sunroof.
Air Conditioning is Cold
Sony CD Player with Ipod Connection
All Gauge Lights Work
Heated Leather Seats
Tires have over 70% tread
Maintenance receipts for oil changes from 1992
Car Fax Report
Emissions report from July when it passed for previous owner.

The Bad:

1.I registered this last week so the title has not come in. I can write a bill of sale and give you my registration. That will allow you to get6 temp tags until the title comes in.
2.The drivers window only rolls up to where there is about 1" left. I haven't had the chance to look at it, but I think my price still reflects this. (Edit. The window will go up that last inch with some help. Then it needs help to get down that first inch as well. Not a big deal for me since I roll with A/C or the sunroof open.
3. Rear speakers dont seem to be working although I do hear them come on for a second every now and then. Could be a loose connection somewhere.
4. Has a check Engine Light. Car runs and drives fine though so probably a switch or sensor.

Kelly Blue Book Values Private Party.

Excellent: $4360
Good: $3935
Fair: $3260

I am asking $3000 which I think is very good for what you are getting.

Thanks man! Yeah I would think it would sell quick, but I haven't had any luck on the local craigslist. It drives great. Im really on the fence about keeping it. My biggest issue is the lack of storage space. I carry two phones, a drink, a wallet, and other things and there just isn't anywhere to put them.

Ah I live in Knoxville and I saw your ad on Craigslist. Props for the nice car I am surprised it hasn't sold as of yet, what a price! Damn tuition taking all my money!

The star on the hood, sure does look good.

yeah its weird. I think the fact that I am waiting on the title is hurting me. Im thinking of pulling it off craigslist and then posting it back up when I have the title. I am extremely close to just keeping it. Its too nice to just give away.

I think you posted you bought this car 6 months ago, and your still waiting on a title?

I thought my state was bad at 2 - 3 months...

Why not call your DMV and ask them if there is a solution, they must have heard this before?
