1986 Mercedes 190E 2.3 sedan?

I found a mercedes 190E 2.3 sedan, year 1986 with 101,236 miles on it it looks clean and runs smooth. I do not have much money to spend on a car at this time, price is 2500, anyone have an opinion on if this is a good purchase. Would service on a car like this be a problem, it has been well kept.


Why is Chevy trying to cash-in with the success of Toyota Scions xB, xA and TC by creating these compact cars?

The 190e 2.3 is a very nice car with a nice little motor. If the car is very tidy on the body and interior and mechanically all is well then it should be a good bet. Please remember that the car is over 20 years old and it will require money to be put into it for repairs at some stage no matter how well it has been looked after.

Volkswagen Magazines...Literature?!!?

I have owned several mercedes and japanese cars. The Mercedes will cost more for repairs and servicing...if you can do this yourself you can control the costs alot more.

The best advice I can give is always buy a vehicle within your budget and allow some money for running repairs.

2. Change oil to a minimum of DELO 400 15W-40, or go Mobil 1 0W-40(NEVER use jiffy lube, etc...and I do mean NEVER!), or that crap 10W-40, 10W-30.
Cheap tune-ups are like cheap food...garbage.

You are getting some really good advice here. The only thing I can add is Get your parts on eBay and get the Euro headlights! I put them in my 1986 560 SEL and WOW what a difference!

What kind of car did Max (Mel Gibson) drive in Mad Max?

My wife drives an 84' 190E. Great car! It has 128,000 miles on it now (not much for a 23 year old car...) It runs just fine and we never had real problems with it. It still feels very solid.
If the car you are buying was well maintained, go for it. Look at it this way: the price is $2500, but lets say you need to put in another $1000 into this car to "make it right."
You'll have a great car for $3500, which is much better than a new small Ford or Chevy for $20,000.
Of course, it's always a good idea to have a good mechanic, the one you trust, to check the car before you buy it.
