I'm only going to be living here (left my '69 280SL in the US) for a few years but I need to have a good car . What are the common W202 problems that I should look out for? Any other buying advice would be appreciated.
What you want to know plays out on this section of the Forum every day...
The key problems are the organic wiring harnesses in the early models '94-part of '96. Front end parts wearing out sometime after 100,000 miles. Transmissions that have never been serviced because of faulty service advice from M/B. The list goes on. Spend some time reading the back pages and you'll get a good idea what to look out for.
Good Luck and Welcome to our corner of the Forum:thumbsup:
The "Common Problems & Solutions" thread really helped me a lot when I bought a 1995 W202 slightly more than a year ago. You'll surprise the mechanic with the knowledge of the car after reading up the postings by the members here......great help!
