1996 Mercedes 320E 2dr Coupe.?

..with leather seats and 172,000kms on the clock. Is this likely to be a tired old donkey or can I put my faith in Mercedes' fabled engineering? (Can't decide whether to bother travelling 150 miles for a test drive)

Does this sound like a scam?


And what do you think would be a fair price if it turns out to be in good overall nick? (Pounds stirling would be preferable here)

Why do dogs pp on car tires?

I've been driving an early 80s MB for 8 years but the awful truth is that many 90s models were not as good. They copped a bad batch of insulation on the wiring loom about the engine for some years. This deteriorated quickly which has led to a lot of electrical problems. However the bad supplier was replaced about '96 so your prospective car might/might not be affected.

How can I get rid of a lien on a car...?


Some 6-cyl engines start blowing head gaskets from 100,000 km on (62,000miles) in the 104 series engine. This can cost the GNP of a small nation to fix. First sign is oil leaking around head gasket (or a suspiciously clean motor) Problems with water pumps, radiators, engine mounts, cooling fan clutches, fan belt tensioners, the cooling system generally. Exhaust systems expensive.

What month is the best to but a new car?


The model changed in '96. The newer model was even worse and a more expensive fix. If your prospective car has the new body, I'd suggest you look for a Toyota. I'd suggest that anyway.

Has anyone ever dealt with a car sales/export company in Japan called Globiz?

Be careful,as ones made after 1991 have electrical problems.
