1990 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series

YOU ARE LOOKING AT PROBABLY THE MOST WELL MAINTAINED 1990 MERCEDES 300D 2.5 (TURBO DIESEL) YOU HAVE SEEN.....
I BOUGHT THIS ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. THE LAST OWNER ALSO TOOK VERY VERY GOOD CARE OF HER
IT HAS BEEN VERY WELL MAINTAINED ALL THE WAY ALONG. I DROVE IT MAYBE 2,000 MILES IN THE LAST 2 YEARS PLUS I HAVE MANY OF THESE DIESELS. I CANNOT DRIVE THEM ALL AT THE SAME TIME, AND THAT IS WHY I AM SELLING IT.
THE NEXT OWNER WILL BE GETTING HIM OR HERSELF ONE VERY, VERY NICE MERCEDES DIESEL.....
WHEN I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE THE OWNER DID NOT LET ME KNOW THE A/C DID NOT WORK. NOT A BIG DEAL. I REPLACED THE EXPANSION VALVE AND IT SEEMED TO WORK WELL. THE LAST OWNER DID NOT TELL ME HE OVERHEATED THE B'JESUS OUT OF THE MOTOR, AND IT HAD SMALL CRACKS IN THE HEAD THAT ONLY GOT WORSE OVER TIME..... *SO* LONG STORY SHORT I HAD TO REPLACE THE ENGINE.THE ENGINE HAD 90,000 MILES WHEN IT WAS REPLACED ABOUT 25,000 MILES AGO*ENGINE HAS ABOUT 115,000 MILES
THE ENGINE RUNS LIKE NEW. IT IS VERY QUIET. WHEN IT IS RUNNING BIODIESEL BLEND YOU CANNOT HEAR IT RUNNING....
*NEW WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR AND BLOWER MOTOR 2013*INJECTOR PUMP WAS REBUILT AT 304K (2/14)
*TRANSMISSION SERVICE,FLUID AND FILTER REPLACED 2/13
*NEW FRONT PIPE & REAR WHEEL BEARING 2013
*RESONATOR & BACK (EXHAUST) REPLACED WITH STAINLESS STEEL (3/15)
*FRONT DRIVESHAFT FLEX JOINT, DRIVESHAFT CENTER BEARING SUPPORT, LEFT REAR WHEEL BEARING 3/16
*TIRES HAVE ABOUT %80 TREAD. THE REARS ARE YOKOHAMA ICE GUARDTHE FRONTS ARE YOKOHAMA ALL SEASONS
*THE CAR WAS ALMOST NEVER DRIVEN IN THE SNOW (REAR WHEEL DRIVE MERCEDES ARE KNOWN TO BE LOUSY IN THE SNOW)
THE BODY IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE IS NO RUST ON THE BODY.
THE INTERIOR IS EXCELLENT FOR A 26 YEAR OLD VEHICLE.
THE POWER SEAT SWITCHES WERE REPLACED AROUND 2009
THE HEAT BLOWS HOT, THE A/C BLOWS COLD (WAS RECHARGED 2 YEARS AGO)
THE RADIATOR AUX FANS WERE REPLACED- 1 IN 2006, THE OTHER IN 2012ONE AUX FAN (PASSENGER SIDE) DOES NOT WORK. I HAVE A BRAND NEW ONE IN THE TRUNK.
THE VACUUM PUMP WAS REPLACED IN 2008 (OEM, NOT CHINESE GARBAGE)
BOTH VACUUM SOLENOIDS (IN FRONT OF COOLANT RESERVOIR) WERE REPLACED IN 2012 - THEY WERE NOT CHEAP!
TRANSMISSION MODULATOR VALVE WAS REPLACED IN LATE 2013NEW "HARD" VACUUM LINE FROM MODULATOR VALVE TO VACUUM TEE UP FRONT
VALVE COVER GASKET REPLACED IN 2014
BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS ARE EXCELLENT. I DO NOT REMEMBER WHEN THOSE WERE DONE HONESTLY BUT THEY WILL NOT GIVE YOU ANY PROBLEMS ANY TIME SOON.....
SHOCKS AND STRUTS ARE EXCELLENT. SHE DRIVES LIKE A MERCEDES TANK!
I TYPICALLY GET ABOUT 33-37 MPG ON THE HIGHWAY.
THE STEREO IS ORIGINAL AND WORKS. THE LEFT FRONT SPEAKER SOMETIMES WORKS. I THINK IT IS THE WIRE BEHIND THE RADIO
POWER SEATS WORK FINE.
PASSENGER SIDE MIRROR WORKS. THE DRIVER SIDE METAL STICK BROKE INSIDE (MANUALLY ADJUST)
THE CRUISE CONTROL STOPPED WORKING ABOUT A YEAR AGO. THE CRUISE SWITCH ASSY WORKS BUT I THINK ITS THE MODULE.ONE OF THE ABS SENSORS IS DIRTY AND THE ABS LIGHT COMES ON ONCE IN A WHILE. I SUSPECT IT MAY BE RELATED TO THE CRUISE NOT WORKING.
INTERIOR LIGHTS WORK
THE INTERIOR WOOD GRAIN IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
HEAD LIGHTS, TAIL LIGHTS AND FOG LIGHTS WORK
I REPLACED THE HEADLIGHT "DOORS" SO THEY LOOK VERY GOOD.
THE BATTERY IS WEAK FROM SITTING.
MOON ROOF WORKS
POWER ANTENNA WORKS- I REPLACED IT TWICE SINCE I OWNED IT AND ALSO REPLACED THE POWER ANTENNA MOTOR ONCE.THE RADIO WORKS WELL. I REPLACED THE SPEAKERS WITH GOOD ONES THAT ARE NOT DRIED OUT SO THE SOUND IS AS GOOD AS IT WAS IN 1990.
THE DASH IS EXCELLENT- NO CRACKS
SPARE TIRE & TOOL KIT IN TRUNK
CAR HAS NO LEAKS
I AM SURE THERE WAS MORE SERVICE DONE TO THE VEHICLE I WILL TRY TO PULL UP MORE RECORDS
KEYS: I HAVE A FEW AROUND THE HOUSE. AT LEAST THIS VALET KEY AND I MORE SQUARE KEY. I LIKELY HAVE 1 OR MORE KEYS FOR THIS VEHICLE
I WOULD JUMP IN THIS CAR AND DRIVE IT TO VANCOUVER, CANADA WITH NO HESITATIONS, BUT I WOULD DO AN OIL CHANGE AND REPLACE THE FUEL FILTERS IF TAKING IT ON A 4,000 MILE JOURNEY.
IF YOU WANT A VERY WELL MAINTAINED 300D WITH NO HEADACHES THIS IS THE ONE.
I WILL GLADLY GIVE THE WINNER RECEIPTS, PLUS THE MECHANICS THAT WORKED ON THE VEHICLE ALSO HAVE MORE RECORDS OF WORK DONE.....
CLEAN & CLEAR TITLE IN HAND- NO LIENSSOLD BY PRIVATE PARTY
I AM A NON-SMOKER, I HAVE NO PETS, AND THE CAR DOES NOT SMELL OF MOTH BALLS OR ANYTHING FUNKY.....

I WILL GLADLY TAKE IT TO ANY LOCATION WITHIN 40 MILES UPON RECEIPT OF PAYMENT TO FACILITATE THE TRANSPORT, INCLUDING AIRPORT PICKUP AT BOSTON LOGAN AIRPORT (BOS).
I HOPE THIS WILL BE AN EASY SALE FOR ME AND THE NEW WINNER.IF THIS SALE GOES WELL, I WILL LIST MY OTHER W124 AND 2 W123 (1985 300D)$150 WILL BE ADDED TO SALE PRICE TO COVER MY COSTS OF SELLING THIS VEHICLE.
