• I have owned a 1991 MB 190E 2.6 since 2003 and it drives very nice, although I don't like the way the tranni starts in 2nd unless I floor it. I now have 200K km on it and have replaced a lot of the things that this 300E had replaced including the head gasket and radio. You have to make sure that you use good tires on these cars if you want them to handle their best.

  • wow, this is a testimony as to why you should never by an old Merc… cos even a mechanic will spend thousands, and still not get it right!

    • You should never by an old neglected non running Merc expecting it to be cakewalk…A knowledgeable person would have checked the coolant bottle the first time the hood was open for any signs of oil mixing.
