I love this car, it is the ultimate luxury car and I would buy one again if I ever get the chance to! This car has leather seats that have a seat warmer installed in them and the heat and air conditioning both work great! It has a lot of horsepower, if you're not careful, the car will get away from you. It starts off and before you know it, you're easily going 115 mph. It doesn't even feel like you are going that fast, it almost feels like you are driving on air. Almost feels like you are driving on air. This car is everything you've dreamed about and more, try it!

Just driving around town
Pros
The seats and the driving on air feel

Couldn't find nothing

I bought my car used back in 2009 for $2200 after looking at several others. It's 22 years old with 122,000 miles on it. The interior is still spotless, the engine itself hasn't given me any major issues, and the body and suspension are all original but in great condition. I personally like the styling of the old pre-DaimlerChrysler Mercedes Benz automobiles, though some might find the boxy looks a bit dated, I feel they've held up much better than the vast majority of cars of the era. The seats are vinyl (or "MB-Tex"), and they look brand new. The leather, wood, and plastics, on the steering wheel, console, and dash have held up remarkably well. It's far from perfect though. For starters, its pretty slow by todays standards. It requires 92 octane or higher, or the engine pings. On top... (more)
Story
It's the first car I purchased, the car I learned to drive and take my driving test in, taken to and from school and work every day without hassle. I plan to hold onto it for as long as it lasts.
Pros
- Its cheap up-front costs ($2500 for one in excellent condition and low miles) - Its not too common in the United States - A well-maintained example will continue to be a reliable car, if taken care of. - Basic maintenance like changing the oil, transmis
Cons
- A poorly maintained example will certainly become a money pit. - Replacement parts can be expensive, as will labor at a Mercedes dealership - It won't be breaking any speed records, as it has hardly more horsepower than a new Ford Fiesta - It's a small

The 190 chassis is a rugged small sized 4 door saloon car. Specifically the 190d (d for diesel) has its own specific pros and cons, but I'll get into that in the other sections. This car is strictly a people carrier not meant for heavy duty uses.
Story
First time I drove this car I knew it was love at first sight. The smells, the sounds, and the overall feel is everything you don't get from modern vehicles. It has its own personal character
Pros
The best part about the car is the 35mpg+. The 2nd best part of the car is the styling. If you like classic German engineering with a racing pedigree for affordable prices the 190e chassis is one to own. Its counterpart the e30 m3 on the other hand is very expensive car to own for the average consumer. The aero dynamics of the vehicle also aids in the high mpg average. Despite its boxy shape it has a very low drag coefficient of any car of that era, and even in today's day and age.
Cons
Worst parts about the car is first and foremost the space is limited. If you're a large person at least 6 foot or so, you'll find the car to be very cramped. Especially for you're passengers in the rear seating. Probably the biggest con for the 190d 2.2 Liter specifically is the extreme lack of power. With a factory rating of 70hp/90tq you'll wont be traveling to any places in a hurry.
