1987 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 300 SDL Turbo 3.0 litre I6 turbo diesel from North America
Mercedes quality at its best
Nothing major to report so far; just regular oil changes every 3,000 miles.
No matter how much I drive it, it never lets me down. It is every bit as reliable as my old 300SD.
This car is very fast, too. It goes like a big gas V8 while returning a fuel range of 25-32 miles per gallon all year round!
As long as you keep your diesel exercised and maintained properly, they will run forever!
* Nothing beats a W126 Mercedes S-Class for quality; not a W220, nor even a W140 (I know, I've driven them both).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
