Power steering box (excess play).
Rust and water leaks to the interior now starting to take their toll.
Generally monotonously reliable! (but do keep it serviced)
A very pleasant, comfortable and super reliable car.
Quite economical and fast for its size and weight. I'm told 230E is the best engine for economy/power balance.
Cabin is well designed.
Only cost £1800 privately - what a bargain!
Previously a Jaguar / Volvo person I am now a Mercedes convert.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
