Re: Mercedes OM616 - looking for cruisers w/same
I have nothing useful to add other than I own a 79 Mercedes 300D with the 617 chassis and it is my pride and joy. I only have 200K on her and know for a fact the car could easily outlive me despite my relative youth. Parts are abundant and cheap online. Good forums for repairs too. A truly wonderful machine that is utterly mechanical and thus repairable.
Our sailboat has a boring Universal 5432 (M40), which is utterly reliable and uninteresting by comparison.
