>rusts like a 1982 Toyota
>costs as much as a 2002 Mercedes to fix

I'll give the W210 credit, its pretty reliable all around for a Mercedes. So its about as reliable as a Mitsubishi Diamante.
>>
From the 80's on down these things were overall simple and easier than shit to work on, and they lasted pretty much forever with proper maintenance

From the 90's on up they're a cluster-fuck mess of computer-reliant over-complexity where nothing runs unless the computer's running smooth, and maintenance costs should count as a form of rape.

delicious, is anything electrical malfunctioning? Was anything repaired?

Absolutely nothing is wrong, nothing has been repaired. This is about the 10th Merc I've owned in my life, and the W210's are fucking rock solid reliability wise in the US

Mine is 2001 E320 4matic with about 65,XXX miles on it

No OP, a used Merc wont get you a gf either.
>>
There's a w210 I really have my eye on, but I've heard so much bad things about the electronics in them that I'm scared to take the plunge.
I know the mechanical bits are good. They're practically the same as w211.

I already own a W124 and a W211.
>>
Why would you want a w210 if you have the superior in every way w211 and w124?
>>
>>14318667
Find the much more classier car for 2.5k
>>
>>14319425
Like what? my family has owned 3 W210's over the years, my grandfather took one to over 200K before he got his 06' E500 to replace it. None of them ever had electrical issues.
>>
>>14319436
I think OP wants a $2.5k car that still functions
>>
>>14319433
>Why would you want a w210 if you have the superior in every way w211 and w124?
Because the w210 styling is starting to look pretty good again.

>>14319446
>Like what?
Nothing specific. Just something I've always heard.
Also, there's no service history so I have no idea what's been replaced or not or if its had regular maintenance.

Also rust, and bad paint but that's not something I'm worried about.
>>
>>14319491
Rust and bad paint are only an issue if you are buying in Europe, as Mercedes used them to field test a new water based paint system that didn't really work

Electrical issues don't really become an issues till the next generation E class, as the W210 is still fairly mechanical. You occasionally see ABS/ESP warning lights on with higher mileage ones, but 99% of the time it's just a bad wheel speed. sensor. You can still easily DIY repairs and maintenance on a W210

If there is no service history, get the car inspected by someone who knows Mercedes, and budget about a grand over the next month to get all the maintaince caught up.

It does, anything that doesn't can be fixed with ductape and hammer.

>>
>>14319556
I completely missed the pic. I knew the w210 had both inline and v6 diesels in its run. I didn't know if it had petrol inlines as well.

after checking wiki.. it appears they did.

It's funny how people on /o/ think that a 2000 Mercedes Benz is falling apart and a 1995 honda civic is a fucking reliable car. So much autism on this board. The think with mercedes and BMWs for that matter is that they have more sensors for stuff, more diagnostics and therefore will "overreport" stuff compared to a basic econo-shit-box. So you may get errors that a motor in your steering wheel lock had a signal out of the optimal range - but what does that mean? It just means there could be a problem with it in the future. In your 1995 shitbox therea are sensors only for the brake level fluid and coolant temperature - ofcourse it seems trouble free - when in fact it's also falling apart. The only thing with these german vehicles is that you have to DIY them or find a good cheap indy shop for them.

Looks like a Hyundai Sonata

>>14319999
The level of reporting/sensor monitoring on a Mercedes make them a fucking dream to troubleshoot as long as you have the proper equipment

>the computer even records what triggers the fucking car alarm
>>
>>14318667

These rust like you wouldn't believe. Seriously, if you really must get one then check it over thoroughly.

E39 5 series is a much better bet.
>>
>>14322826
I own a 330ci and I agree with this. I can scan everything! Also, the e46 m3 has free diagnostic software for the computer that can scan professionally that was posted on a bimmerforum
>>
>>14322826
>As long as you have the software not available for retail purchase
Yeah, that helps me a lot.

I'm in Europe. My w211 also has the bad water based paint. But the climate is warm enough that I don't need to worry about rust.

The one I'm looking at has the OM611 2.2l I4 turbo diesel and a six speed manual.

I've also spoken with a former w210 owner yesterday.
He said that he has never personally encountered any problems.

He also said he's heard of a problem with the car's "computer" and that the most common way to fix it is by transplanting the equivalent part from the w211.

I'm having a hard time finding someone that has had problems with their car or anyone that can get me specific information.
>>
>>14319153
That looks exactly like a C280 engine bay. That's a 3.2 M112 right? I'm thinking of getting a W210 as long haul family vehicle. Have you had any little electrical issues with it yet?
>>
>>14319115
What kind of "leather" is that? It looks different from other Mercedes.
>>
>>14324028
It's absolutely available for retail purchase? Google Maxidas diagnostic system, you can buy them about a dozen different places

>>14324099
>>14324143
Like I said, absolutely no issues with mine. My grandfather took a W210 to 200K with no issues. My father took one to around 150K with no issues.
