1989 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.6 from North America
An all-around great car
Not much has gone wrong with this car.
The brakes squeak pretty bad even after just putting new brake pads on.
The car hasn't had any engine or major mechanical problems yet.
This car is extremely bad in rain and snow. I lost control going around a turn at a very low speed in the rain once.
The seats adjust just about every way possible making it one of the most comfortable cars I've ever sat in.
This car is still a wonderful car even though it is over 10 years old. It rides very smooth and is easy and fun to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too own this same model and the reason that we have squeaky brakes is not because of the car as much as it is the mechanic. The way you glue the brakes together makes all the difference in the noise when you apply the pedal. I dislike the performance of the 190e, it is a little hesitant when you stomp it, but so far it has been a wonderful car.
