 1982 Mercedes Benz 240D. We purchased this vehicle from the original owner in 2011 with 78298 miles. The woman hadn't been able to drive for some time but had always kept the car garaged and well maintained. She had also kept all of the maintenance records which will be included. We have used one reputable import mechanic exclusively to do any work we have needed done on the car. Hopefully the pictures are worth a thousand words in that the vehicle is in beautiful shape. The car runs great and has been a pleasure to drive and has drawn a great deal of attention. The odometer stopped working just prior to a trip in 2012. The cost of repair when we got back was going to be just shy of $400.00, which we opted not to do at the time. Unfortunately, we never did have it done as this is my wife's car and just isn't driven enough that we worried about it. We did try to add up how many grandchildren trips have been taken, and other known trips, and came up with an estimate of about 8000 miles since the odometer quit, but again, unfortunately cannot verify that number. One other issue is that the car has used oil since we purchased it. The mechanic has not been able to determine exactly why since the car does not smoke like a car that burns oil and there are no apparent leaks to explain the loss. He did tweak a couple of things that he thought might be contributing factors but we can't see that it made any difference. The interior is in excellent condition with only slight leather shrinkage around the windows. My wife loves the car but it does need to be in a garage on very cold days if it is going to start easily and we don't have a garage. She has decided to go back to her first love of a Volkswagen.

Mercedes CLA45 AMG Racing is ready for a spot on the grid

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 18:02:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz trotted out its CLA45 AMG-based racer at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. We first showed you the sedan in the deluge of news and reveals that precedes most good auto shows, and were blown away by the car, formally known as the CLA45 AMG Racing Series.
We were strolling by the Mercedes stand, and figured we'd pop in and take a look at the new racer and its carbon-fiber body panels, gutted interior, and race-sourced aero parts. It's a looker, both as a road car and a track weapon. It's not clear what series the CLA45 AMG will qualify for, although it does seem like a shoe-in for the World Touring Car Championship. Let us know what you think of the CLA racer down in the comments. In the meantime, we've got a full gallery of live images up top, along with the stock images that were posted last week on the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page.

Next Mercedes-Benz C-Class to get diesel, hybrid versions

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 13:30:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz is planning a more aggressive product strategy for its next-generation C-Class range. "We were fighting the 3 Series with two arms tied behind our back, and now we will change that," Steve Cannon, the automaker's US CEO, told Automotive News in a recent interview.
In addition to offering more body styles of the new C-Class, AN reports that the revamped Mercedes will also be offered here with hybrid and diesel powertrains. Currently, the C-Class comes in coupe and sedan variants, with only gasoline engines. The BMW 3 Series, however, is available as a sedan, coupe, convertible and wagon, and offers buyers the choice of gasoline, diesel (the upcoming 328d) or hybrid power.
Mercedes-Benz will show the next-generation C-Class at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, with sales of the US-built sedan following in August. Coupe, convertible and hybrid models will follow in early 2015, and while diesel and all-wheel-drive versions are planned, no specific timetable has been released regarding availability.

VW looking to MAN up, ditch Mercedes van deal

Wed, 16 Jan 2013 09:58:00 EST

Unlike the US, the commercial truck market throughout the rest of the world is chocked full of competitors from many different automakers. Since 2006, Volkswagen has had a fullsize van called the Crafter that was a result of a partnership with Daimler AG and based on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. This partnership is supposed to last through 2016, but Reuters is reporting that VW might be looking to end its relationship with Daimler and create its own van in cooperation with German truck and bus maker MAN.
The article says that VW AG has more than a 75-percent stake in MAN, which would essentially be keeping the new commercial vehicle in-house. Even if VW bolts, Daimler still has a deal worked out in the commercial truck industry between its subsidiary Mitsubishi Fuso and Renault-Nissan to supply the other with different trucks.
