Hi, Does anyone know how this vehicle runs? Track record? I'm thinking about buying one for 5k very clean and 100k miles. Does anyone have mechanical info on this car? Thanks.

I have an 88 300E with 197,000 miles on it. No major problems. They are known to leak oil, but the engines are bullet proof. Have had to replace the usual due to normal wear- water pump, fuel pump. Still on original transmission. I think $5K sounds a little high. Good luck
