Kindavlog: 750 Mile Roadtrip... In a 33 Year Old Mercedes

Post by Jarod » Thu Feb 28, 2013 2:06 pm

Took a trip from Rochester, NY to Tennessee in my 33 year old Mercedes-Benz 300SD.
This car had over 206k on it when we left, it has a 5 cylinder turbo diesel engine, starts and runs amazingly well for its age. these older Mercedes diesels are amazing, I have owned this car personally for over 8 years and i have not really done anything too major maintenance wise.

Some of the cool stuff we saw along the roads on the road trip from New York to Tennessee. Made fun of a Prius, Cool buildings, awesome road for motorcycles, The track I talk about was in need for speed 3: Hot pursuit. it was called rocky pass.

Car drove fine all the way down and back. over 1400 miles total, not a single problem, after 33 years and for the most part basic maintenance that's quite a feat of engineering in my book.

We got around 25 mpg on the way down, about 28 on the way back.
