mercedes 240d vs 300d

Tracking down faults can be time-consuming, although parts costs tend to be low. Yes, i did have a full cab of junk, plus a small little trailer in the back. Master cylinders can also fail but replacements aren’t expensive. The cost of genuine parts has risen sharply in recent years, and buying pattern items tends to be a false economy while used components are also scarce. What matters in towing is torque. You’ve only got to spend the briefest of periods with a W123 for example, and you’ll soon see why Mercedes charged a hefty premium over more mainstream rivals. The 300D (or TD) with a turbo and automatic get to 70mph faster, handle hills better, and get around stop & go town traffic better than the previous cars. A Mercedes from the days when it was ruled by engineers rather than beancounters is something to savour, but with the W123 now getting on, many are getting tatty, with repair costs potentially prohibitively high. Any W123 engine is straightforward enough to rebuild on a DIY basis, but the overhead-cam 280 unit is complicated (and costly) to overhaul, while the fuel injection systems also need expert attention. (I drove a 300D for over a decade, and cannot imagine trying to live with 15 fewer horsepower in about the same weight.) I was researching and saw the 240d only has 67hp, whereas the 300d has 120hp. Panel availability is good, although some pattern stuff is ropey so it’s best to stick with genuine parts, which cost far more. I've never seen a 13 on a 123, there were (rare) 15 inch Bundts but I don't know that they were ever put on 123s. But buy a good one and look after it, and you’ll never need to replace it because a cherished W123 will rack up inter-galactic mileages without murmur. While many W123s didn’t feature a lot of kit, what is fitted tends to be reliable. I should have clarified the word 'slow' (and a couple of my biases.) On coupés it also locks the front seats in place; an automatic MoT failure beckons if the system packs in. As John said, it really boils down to what kind of driver you are, what kind of driving feel you expect to get out of W123 of your choice and what fuel consumption you want to get out of your W123 experience. Thats what I was going to say! Prices• Project £1000-2000 • Good £5000-8500 • Concours £7000-15,000 •, Practicality ★★★★Running costs ★★Spares ★★★DIY Friendly ★★★Investment ★★★★Desirability ★★★. Or vice versa???? The turbo could plausibly be of benefit in the MPG department, not sure. Some vehicles drop MPG seriously fast upon towing whereas some change very little. The W123 was fairly well protected from the elements, while the paintwork was unsurpassed. Many cars have electric windows and a few have air-con, while most feature central locking. 1980: A facelift brings a new (M102) engine, better rustproofing, wheelarch liners and an ABS option. To remove the hubs you’ll need a special tool to remove the rear wheelbearings, so it’s a job for specialists only. 1981: The turbocharged 300CD is introduced for the US. The manuals get better gas mileage, which is very important to me. The oil should have been changed every 4000 miles, and the timing chain every 60,000 miles; failure to do so means the chain can fail, wrecking the engine. Most sought after of all W123s is the coupé, which represents less then 5% of production. But it sounds like you are saying the manual might not be as reliable. Location: Portsmouth, Va. Posts: 190 240D vs. 300D. I look back fondly on the many years and miles we shared. Most W123s came with a four-speed gearbox, manual or auto, although some facelifted (post-June 1980) cars got a five-speed manual. The bundts and steel wheels are all 14". If you take the plunge go for a post-1980 facelifted car as these featured more efficient engines and better rustproofing. I've had a mistake of not getting the clutch plate fixed and towing stuff, it's not pretty... You never know what condition the transmission is in when you buy an old vehicle, but it definitely pays to make sure those things work right. When it comes to cars engineered to last, few companies have been as consistent as Mercedes-Benz. Repairs are involved and costly. Great writeup!
