1985 was the last year Mercedes built the 300CD. These cars are know to be Mercedes most reliable and enduring cars. Cosmetically this car needs some attention and shows a little rust. The motor runs great and shifts through all the gears smoothly with great pick up. This car has averaged 27 mpg every time I have checked. I have been on long trips several times with no issues. Wouldn't take much to get back into very good condition.
