next sumnmer me and my friend want to take a road trip to cali. its 2700 miles from where I live. JMH suggested a MB diesel because if the fuel ecomonmy, reliability and ride. I think ill take his advice and get one. my question is have any thing go wrong with these cars? any input appreciated. would the benz be good for a 2700 mile road trip? anything I should look out for?


thanks,

The S class until 1992 is the most solid Mercedes ever built. Just make sure that you get a good one with original miles. Since these cars show next to no wear at all over many years it is quite common to find cars with changed odometers. If you buy a CA car be sure to have a dealer perform the trap oxidizer recall.

Mercedes over bored the motors if I recall correctly causing engine trouble. But the 300sd is known to be a bullet proof motor like almost all Mercedes engines with proper care<br>Dan Younes
