Mercedes Benz 300D Turbo Diesel

blue-300d-frontIn the early 1980s the Mercedes Benz 300D was a car ahead of its time. It was a simple yet elegant looking car. It felt solid and rode like no other car in its class.

Competitors such as Oldsmobile and Cadillac had nothing that could compete with the 300D. This car was in a league of its own.

A 1983 300D Turbo retailed new for 26K which certainly was not cheap back then. With a curb weight of 3500 lbs it wasn’t light either. But this car had a distinct feel and personality like no other.

Like other Mercedes this car has a solid and stable feel at highway speeds all while getting terrific gas mileage.

I really like the simplicity of both the exterior and interior. It’s simple yet refined looking.

If you’re looking to buy a 300D don’t forget that they are already three decades old. Don’t expect to come across a cream puff any time soon.

But you don’t need to buy a cream puff to enjoy what this car has to offer. It still attracts attention with its classic boxy exterior.

Though these cars aren’t as luxurious as today’s Mercedes Benz they are still very high quality cars. These diesels were built to last.

The best part is that they are still relatively cheap on the market. For 5 grand you should be able to find a decent condition 300D that will last years to come.
