1989 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 260E 3.0
Really nice ride that gets you respect even from the valets
Just bought at auction and notice the sunroof and rear windows don't work - same circuit? Has a hum from right rear wheel area at speed. Oil change guy today said it 'weeps' a bit underneath. Have read review site of similar problems.
'Mushy' brakes that may just need a 'look see'.
Have salivated about owning a MB for years and now know why. This 260E is the most beautiful car I've ever driven. If this doesn't self destruct, Volvo has lost a faithful 28 year driver/buyer.
Drove my kids individually to their friend's houses 40 miles apart just for the experience of driving.
Considered going out to the carport with my pillow and having a sleepover with it -- more than once.
Both teenagers want to be seen in it!
White with smoked windows, sunroof, black trim, chrome fender wraps, sweet looking, beautiful & sticky drive on our Island roads, super comfy ride in spite of lack of fiery spunk and top end range, a huge winner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
