History
Have owned two 190ds, an auto and a 5 spd for 20 years, they have 230K and 120K miles respectively (only nicely broken in), have repainted and upgraded the cars several times and replaced a vast amount of original parts on each car - the 5 spd achieves 50 mpg under ideal hi-way driving with tires inflated to 46 PSI the auto gets 44 mpg

In terms of durability and net economy of operation, the 190D is unsurpassed - I encountered numerous 190Ds in Hong Kong as taxis with over 1.5 million miles on original engines
