1987 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class 300SDL Turbodiesel Sedan Review
Nearly Perfect Vehicle — The 300SDL, is a car that STILL rivals many of the cars today. From the TANK like build to , luxury ride, to the 30 MPG, hard to find the combination. Its old school Mercedes, but that is NOT a bad thing, it just means everything about the car has a purpose and there are NO cup holders.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Fuel Economy, Safety, Comfort, Performance
Cons: Some parts can be expensive
