SOLD 1996 W202 C250 (Non-Turbo) Diesel, Manual
FOR SALE BY OWNER
-Front Electric Windows
-Faux leather grey interior
-Air-conditioning – this was not working when I bought the car, and I fitted a new condenser to fix the problem. Cost a few rand and some effort, but one just cannot drive around in summer without aircon.
-Dark tinted windows – this was fitted recently to keep the car cooler if I had to travel through Botswana and Namibia.
-License valid till July 2018 and all paperwork in order.
-There was a mysterious water loss issue when I bought the car, but the problem was traced and the offending part replaced with a new genuine part.
-The power steering pump bearings were whining for a while, so I recently fitted a new power steering pump as a preventative measure.
-I am currently using the car as my daily driver and it has proven to be very reliable despite the high mileage. I’ve done 10000km’s in the last 3 months including a two 2000km road trips to Cape Town in the last month.
-The fuel consumption has also been very good, from a worst of 11km/l in town to a best of 15km/l open road.
-It has a few rust spots, I will forward pics on email or whatsapp.
-At some point the the front lower control arm bushes will have to replaced, but it is only noticeable when turning sharp, like in a parking lot.
-The low coolant level light is permanently on, even though the water level remains constant. I have ordered a new sensor on Ebay and that will be posted to the new owner when it arrives in March/April.
Serious buyers can contact me preferably via email or whatsapp.
