General Comments:

I hate driving, but I love driving this car. It redefines Merc owners.

I never thought I would ever want a Mercedes until I laid my eyes on a majestic white W114. So would I ever buy another car from Mercedes? Only if it's a /8.

Summary:

I would sell my new car before I sell this one

Faults:

The car hesitates slightly when accelerated. I believe it's the accelerator pump inside the carburetor.

General Comments:

This car rides as smooth as I have ever seen a car ride, even being 32 years old.

The body on this vehicle was put together with some extra strong something, because it has no squeaks whatsoever.

It is a German model with German specifications, so it has no air conditioning.

I wish I could find an AC kit for it, but I don't want to kill the value of it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you like it that much, and air conditioning would make you happy, just go for it. As good as the car is, it is also something which has to serve your needs. I doubt it would depreciate the car that much. In many other countries, aftermarket air conditioners were installed on many cars, even very expensive ones, simply because they were costly options from the factory.

Summary:

Rolling in style

Faults:

My car has run smoothly since I have gotten it. The cars clutch however is touchy, if you hold the clutch to long the car drags. As well if you let go of the clutch to fast you jump. The brake booster has been replaced 2 times since I have had it. ($310 Dollars)

I don't think there was enough information on this vehicle. and I also think if someone wants to sell something they should put an up to date picture on their add.
