1992 Mercedes-Benz W124 300D 2.5L turbo diesel from North America
I like d iesel
Water pump replacement.
Upper and lower hose.
Total cost for parts $600.00.
Needs glow plugs.
Leaking injector pump and some oil leaking.
I love owning this car, but remember that it's a Mercedes, and parts are not cheap.
Also, working on this car is horrible. I can't change the glow plugs myself. I need a special tool to get in there, and the injector pump leak is covered in silicone, as the previous owner could not spend the $2.00 on the proper gasket. Now it will take hours to fix that mess.
Inside the car it's awesome and very comfortable. Better than a Caddy or Lincoln any day for that era. I would buy another in a heartbeat. I spent $4900.00 on getting this one. Beware the lack of speed from a diesel, but love that sound.
MPG with A/C; 26 average.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
