1990 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series
Transmission was replaced at 180,000 miles and serviced regularly and shifts perfectly
AC blows nice and cold
Tires are at about 90%
Exhaust was replaced a year ago and is perfect
Shocks replaced at 300,000
Brakes have 10,000 miles on them
Factory radio and power antenna work, ith a Becker auxiliary jack installed in the center console.
All windows, unroo, ower steering wheel and power seats work
She drives nice and smooth, uiet and gets about 23mpg on the highway
Rear defroster works
Head, alves, uides, prings, iming chain, hain guides, adiator replaced at 300,000k (it was a $3200 job)
Doesn't use, urn or leak any oil.
The left side hood hinge has rusted out, nd the hood will not completely close. It latches on the emergency latch.SAFETY ISSUE, hould be addressed ASAP, ood could open while driving.
The power steering leaks heavily and needs to be filled every few days. I think it's a seal on the pump, ot the pump itself.
The windshield has a star on the right and a crack on the left below view
The sunroof leaks in very heavy rain
The locks partially work
The catalytic injector pump is noisy on start up
Probably could use new motor mounts at some point. You can feel it when it's cold.
The heat fades in and out until finally settling on heat. I think the little mono valve needs to be replaced sooner or later.
One of theauxiliary fans died, nd I removed it hoping to replace it or rebuild the motor, ut never got the time. The other one was replaced a little while ago and works fine, oth low speed AC and high speed.
The cruise control isn't working.
Seats are worn accordingly with 350k miles
The left fender is rusted with the hood hinge, s mentioned above and would have to be replaced to get the hood to close properly again
The hood cracked the right side headlight surround on top
There is some rust starting in both rear quarters by the bumper
There is some rust under the rear windshield on the right side
The rear bumper has some chips and the chrome is rusting through
There is some curb rash on the wheels. (they clean up though, didn't have time to wash her this weekend, therwise the wheels are nice)
