1980 Mercedes-Benz W123 230E
A typical long-runner: No fancy stuff, but very reliable and economic
At traffic-lights the engine nearly stops in cold weather conditions, even if the engine was running for more than 20 minutes.
Driver-seat is quite seated out.
Rust is glancing up on door-bottoms (left front and right rear).
Uses about 14 liters per 100 Kilometers.
Super-value for the money (CHF 4'000). It is entirely clear, that the upper mentioned negative comments are obsolete in comparison with the fact, that this is a 23 year old vehicle.
Where else do you get a car for this money that takes you reliably practically everywhere?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
