Not me. I will never ever ever ever buy another car from up north when there is a plentiful supply of no-rust cars in Texas Florida and California. Pay a little more and get a car that does not need all that work.

Sam:

If you are looking for a car to work with in becoming knowlegable in the technology of diesels, this would be a good model to look at. That being said, only you should decide if it is for you. The W123 body and the OM617 engine are great for DIY'ers. Even though you are looking at a minumum initial investment, you should still have a PPI (pre-purchase inspection) done. A full blown 60,000 mile service at a dealer can run more than $800. "There's nothing more expensive than a "cheap" Mercedes-Benz"
