FS: 1989 190E 2.6 auto (Gulfport/Biloxi, MS)
1989 Mercedes 190E 2.6 inline six engine, automatic transmission 213K actual miles. Average of 23 MPG.
Asking $1000.00 USD. Currently located in Gulfport, MS (on the gulf coast). I easily have twice that money into it in the year since I bought it.
Champagne exterior, medium brown interior in fair condition
4 Brand-new tires 1 year - 15K miles ago. (can provide documentation of that)
New radiator 6 months ago
Original "Becker Grand Prix" AM/FM cassette deck (working) in dash.
I have done an oil and filter change using Castrol GTX and NAPA Gold filters every 3K miles since I bought the car one year ago. Recent new air and fuel filters as well.
I am selling the car since it is tough to start when it is cold and does occasionally bog when I accelerate even when it is warm. Other problems of note are that the ABS sometimes pulses the brake pedal when braking at very low speeds and the SRS (airbag) light is on.
It is currently a REGISTERED, INSURED, INSPECTED (RI) daily driver. I do not have the time or money to figure out what is wrong with it. I will say that I drove it the nearly 1500 miles from Rhode Island here to the Biloxi, MS area over just three days without any problems two months ago. It would be a shame to part/send it to the crusher since it is a decent daily driver.
Beyond that, the list of things that do not work as they should is as follows:
A/C - not working
LH rear window and RH front window - not working
antenna does not go up or down so I leave it up
rot on LH rear quarter panel
trip counter - not working
LH low beam and fog not working
Needs center console wood insert for shifter area
front RH speaker needs to be re-coned.
The trunk has to be locked manually since it does not operate off the central vacuum system. I suspect an air leak at the fuel flap.
If interested, please PM me or reply to the post. Pictures on request.
