Mercedes-Benz diesel engines from the 70s/80s/90s are noteworthy for their ability to outlast all of the other parts of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, even though those vehicles were built to a high standard. The legendary Daimler quality reputation took a hit during the Daimler-Chrysler era but the diesel engines still seem to last longer than their gasoline equivalent. But this next car has survived to the 530k mile mark, but the engine has gone into limp mode, which is exactly what it sounds like.
