Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz 230 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mercedes-Benz 230 1990: Won't accelerate beyond 70 km/h

    It's probably in limp-home mode, which means the car's computer has detected something amiss and will only allow the car to run to get you home or to a mechanic. Have a mechanic do a diagnostic check on it, which should show up the cause of the problem.

  • Safety in the mercs

    THOSE Mercedes had a body that gave good crash protection, but your sons would be safer in more modern cars with airbags.

    The Mercedes-Benz W123 series was released in the 1970s so there are lots of cars out there with high mileages on their odometers. Obviously the older they get and the further they have travelled, the more likely you are to strike trouble. The 230E is the pick of the bunch, but go for a late example, from 1986, which is the best equipped. It will handle unleaded fuel without a problem and will have fewer kilometres on the clock. Another car to think about is the Volvo 240/244 series. I know that might seem a boring choice, but it is solid and reliable. Mechanically they are sound and parts are available at reasonable prices.
