Smooth And Comfortable — The paint still shines, holds a beautiful gloss. It is small but feels like a car twice its size not from its weight by from its stance and road feel. It has all the bells and whistles pwr everything. Faux leather but stands the test of time. Looks nice with upgraded factory wheels. Handles OK but will benefit from stiffer springs. This might be the safest feeling small car ever made tank like feeling when you drive it (a smooth tank that is) This car is wonderful to own and drive as long as it is in good condition.

Scally Rally — Used it for the Scally Rally 2006. 2.5 Diesel Auto. I snapped a half-shaft before we went and the throttle cable came off in the Alps which we fixed with tie-wraps. Bloody good fun though. Drove it halfway round the Rally and back home from Madrid with no exhaust.

Absolutely The Best And Most Reliable Car Over The Last 25 Years!! — An 2.0D with 500.000km!!!! It droves like a new car, no annoying sound. No breakdowns. Engine still sound like a Suis watch. On internet there Mercs with more than 1 million km and they're still going!! Conclusion: it's an old car, but is was good, verry good.

Pros

Great power and great handling. If you know Mercedes and how they handle you won't be disappointed in this one for its age.  

Cons

This is the worst car I've ever driven on the snow.  It is nice enough to keep around just as a fair weather vehicle.

This Was Built When Cars Were Made To Last. — Great second car. Great handling. Fun to drive. Nice car to look at, chrome! For a car of this age, it is ageless. Reliable. Compact but not too compact. Acceleration is perfect. Braking is perfect. Safety first and confident. Haven't noticed blind spots. Gas mileage about 26 per gallon. Repair costs fair.

Rides Superb,handles Efficiently,not Very Comfy — i bought this car from my mom. $2500. not bad for the $$$ it sat almost 3 yrs after we trailered it from SC to NY. Started right up and nothing really wrong. it blows hot air all the time, a vacuum leak i'm in no shape to find. put it on the road last September and hit a deer driving back from maine new years day. getting a bit rough, but still runs ok and is fun to drive, just not very good comfort for me. (bad back)

Ok — like looks, handling plus its got a superb stereo. However it is painful on long drives and the rear is lacking in leg room. great car for the small people!! was ripe for the picking at just $2500 dollars-thanks mom (rip)

190e Nice Car — Excellent car! What a classic car! Its age is over 17 years, still drive stable. Especially in the U.K., there is a so cultural country, I bought it just for 600 pounds. Driving in the U.K. makes me feel like a Duke or a Baron. Ha... It's a really a gorgeous car.

Car Didn't Get Hit For A Long Time. — I owned this car for over 10 years and it was good to me. I invested mega bucks but it paid off because I didn't get hit (seriously) and I sold it and now it's gone. They didn't get hit either, until it was totalled, but no one was hurt.
