Hey guys,
Looking at buying a 93 5660 SEC with 100k miles for $2800. Old rich guys wifes car that just got driven with little concern.....like a toyota to a regular guy....driven then thrown out. Biggest problems i see our a rattle from the rear when first accelerating , possibbly drive shaft of maybe even siuspension. Sounds almost like my 77 BMW when the Rubber Coupling (like a u-joint) was going. Really rattles (bucks a little almost) untill the car starts rolling.
Car also looks like it is stting a little low in the rear but that me just be the style. Also, driver seat electrics don;t work, nor does the radio. Other then that, straight, clean runs and sounds great.
Any idea's?

Would really appreaciate the help....its my first MB.

Thank you,
Mike

Are you sure it is a 1993? The "SEC" part sounds like it is a w126, not a w140. I may be wrong. Unless you are in South Africa, w126 were stopped in 1991. If it is 91 or older, check the w126 forum. There is a FAQ sticky at the top of the page.
