Although I am still driving this car 60mi/day, it has some issues and would probably make a better parts car. I'd rather not part it out and just sell the car complete. It's a 93 300TE w/ 206k mi, automatic, black/black, 500 firm.

The Good:
- Lightweight aluminum CLK wheels
- H&R springs (have additional 3 different sizes of spring pads, right now thinnest is installed)
- New plugs, wires, coil packs, fan pulley bracket, fan clutch, tensioner pulley, serpentine belt, MAF sensor, front rotors, front brake pads, rear brake pads
- Newer rear shocks, accumulators
- Body in fair shape
- Interior in excellent shape
- Remote start/keyless entry

The Bad:
- Leaks oil
- A/C not working (was working up until this summer)
- Overheats in summer traffic (turning on the heat alleviates the problem)
- Leaky sunroof, rear hatch
- Rattling noise from transmission
- Engine stumbles, mostly @ idle, will sometimes stall when stopped at a light

Car is located in Bergen County, NJ

Looks like whoever bought it is now trying to flip it for $1900. And they are lying when they say 'Needs Nothing'. In case the Craigslist ad goes away, here's the text:

New ad posted. The lie changed from "needs nothing" to "runs & drives new"; no mention of overheating, dead AC, leaks, or engine stumble. Guess he thinks these cars came from the factory like that, eh?
