1979 Mercedes-Benz W123 280e 2.8 petrol from North America
A VERY reliable car with a timeless look and an excellent reputation
Seats are starting to sag and wear.
Costly repairs, probably because it is an older car and parts are harder to find.
Minor electrical problems.
Car seems to be getting slower over the years.
Very comfortable seats, although starting to sag.
Probably the most durable car I have ever seen.
Reliable engine, but engine is very heavy causing the car to lug on the highway.
Car stills runs strong after 176,928 miles, and still will after 300,000.
Beautiful, original paint finish - never touched up or repainted, but there are some very small bubbles by the bottoms of the doors.
Timeless look, always a head-turner.
I'm very proud to own this car, and always have been. I hope it lasts forever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
