1983 Mercedes-Benz W123 300D 3.0 turbo diesel from North America
Best, safest, and most reliable car humans ever created
Tie rods needed replaced at 315,000 miles.
Transmission flares badly between second and third gear upshift (started recently at 320,000 miles).
Rubber fuel lines needed replaced.
Heater stops occasionally.
This is by far the best car I have ever owned. It handles real nice, and is very reliable.
It has the usual maintenance issues, due to the fact that it has over 500,000 Km.
Minimal oil consumption, and good mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
