This Mercedes has been a reliable car for many years for it's elderly owners, and is ready to find a new home. It has been well maintained mechanically and looked after well. However, the sun and heat of Murrieta have aged it a bit over the years. It has resided most of it's life in a senior mobile home park right next to the main fairway of a golf course, hence the cracked windshield and few golfball dents... Original daily driver needing only minor service and repairs, and some cosmetic upgrades. Engine runs very smooth and quiet. I personally have owned a couple of these Mercedes diesels over the years and I would have to say that the engine in this car has either been rebuilt or replaced at some point, and done well, as it really runs too quiet and smooth for 329k miles. Also, the cleanliness and condition of the basic engine components leads me to believe that some quality work has been carried out on this car mechanically over the years. Unfortunately, the owner has passed away and I helping his son who inherited 2 Mercedes sell them. He has yet to find too much in the way of receipts for work, but has found just about every registration!! A nice driving car for it's age.
