1992 Mercedes-Benz 190-Series 2.6 Sedan 4-Door
Up for sale is a beautiful RED MERCEDES 190e with the larger and more powerful 2.6, six cylinder engine. The motor and transmission are VERY strong with less than 180,000 miles and driven less than 7,500 miles per year. I recently purchased the car from the original owner 2 years ago. The car is well taken care of with all service records and very clean and original, including the paint! The car has good brakes, suspension, tires, new battery and has recently been inspected. The A/C works and blows cold. The car drives beautifully, tracks true and straight, and is very comfortable and quite! Current known issues are: the engine stalls at red lights and stop signs occasionally, rear driver side window will not roll all the way up, the driver door lock does not work with the key, the cruise control does not work, the engine runs a little hot but the temperature does return to normal when the fan kicks on. There are minor imperfections in the interior and minor dings and paint wear, representative of a 24 year old car, including some fading on the exterior. The Kenwood radio works well and so does the power antenna but the radio will cut off sometimes unexpectedly, probably due to a loose wire. The sunroof works but one corner does not close flush with the roof. The power seats work with the exception of the passenger side power head rest. The interior upholstery and headliner are in beautiful condition with some minor pulling away of the door panels. The issues that the car has are very minor and typical of these cars and are easy fixes. The car does not smoke but does leak a little bit of oil. This car can very easily be restored and can be driven and enjoyed while doing so. I have truly enjoyed owning this Mercedes and was going to restore it but recent health issues have forced me to sell the vehicle. The car has never been in an accident and has very little to no rust. The car has been garage kept and is very presentable for being nearly 25 years old! It is very hard to find a RED Mercedes with this very desirable color combination and in this condition! This car needs a little TLC from someone that loves Mercedes and a few minor and quick repairs. The repairs I would recommend would be to replace the engine gaskets simply due to its age, cruise control module, catalytic converter, a good tune up and the other minor issues mentioned above. This car can easily be brought back to near showroom condition with a paint respray. If you love Mercedes cars and you are looking for a great car to restore this is a great starting point for a beautiful restoration! These cars are about to start climbing in value as many of them are now hitting the 25 year mark! This car was over engineered and designed to travel 300,000 miles or more. This is the car that rescued Mercedes from near bankruptcy and is still an iconic and historically important vehicle today! Don't miss out on this rare and beautiful car! I have tried to be as truthful and honest as possible regarding the condition of the car and my feedback score of nearly 1500 with a 100% positive rating speaks for itself.
