I first discovered Mercedes-Benz diesels on our trip to Europe and fell in love. On that trip I found out that the Mercedes w123 engine is considered to be one of the most reliable engines ever manufactured.
Fast forward 2 years and for some reason I start looking for one again. Well…we bought one. It’s a 1979 Mercedes 300CD, diesel (non-turbo).
My initial plan was to sell the Prius and drive the Mercedes to further extend the longevity of our transportation. But since I got such a good deal, we may end up just fixing it up and re-selling it for a profit.
