Selling my beloved 300TE. I am the 2nd owner, I bought it at 188k miles on Jan 1 2010. It now has 235k miles, almost exclusively highway miles (driving back and forth from San Francisco to Solana Beach).
Please do a search on this forum for my name to see the entire history of the car since I've owned it. I love this car very much and have maintained it as such.
3 things wrong with the car.
- pressure accumulators should be replaced (not essential, but back is bumpy)
- radio antenna doesnt come out anymore.
- engine shakes (misfiring?) - I have tried to fix this, as documented here, http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w124...ml#post5038975 but was not successful, otherwise I would keep it because it runs great, and I love the car.
Besides those 3 things, everything else on the car is incredible, and she runs like a champion race horse. If you search for me posts, You'll see I created a post citing that the AC does not blow cold. At the time, I only had the car for 3 months and did not realize that the setting was on the Economic mode. When you turn it off, the AC blows ice cold.
