1982 Mercedes-Benz W123 240D Diesel
Relieves daddy issues
The water pump went out during a road trip to Canada. I was able to find one in an Autozone, and found a mechanic who installed it for 100 bucks, spur of the moment. The pump was 50, so 150 total. Not really bad. Besides that, nothing has gone wrong.
It's slow... and has always been slow. I bring my own oil filters to any shop when I'm due for an oil change, and they always figure it out. Even if they don't know what's going on with it. I think it just takes a screwdriver.
It always starts no matter what (except when the battery is dead). It leaks oil, but burns it more. So don't worry about your driveway too much.
It's the most comfortable thing you will ever drive, and something about it is soothing and relaxing. It's like sailing a yacht. I could sit in traffic all day if the air conditioning would work. I love this car, more than I love my father. It's proven to be more reliable than him also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
