1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The seat springs and padding break down over time, causing a lean, tilt, or sag.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Due to wear of the internal drive gear, the speedometer can stop working.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

A knocking noise from the front end can be caused by cracked strut tower bushings.

Drive Train -- Verified

The bushings for the shifter lever wear out to the point where they break and fall out. This causes excessive movement (loose feel) in the shifter lever and a clanging-type noise when changing gears.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The engine wiring can degrade because the insulating material falls off leaving the bare wire exposed. This can cause many problems depending on which wires are exposed and what they touch.

I own a 94 european model imported in 97. Best ever hands down, it even has the fire-extinguisher system under driver seat. Starts right up, handles, accelerates and handles great.
