Disadvantages: Severe corrosion problems, mechanically unreliable after 100,000 miles

I bought my 1997 E300TD in 2005, with about 100k mikes seduced by the image of quality, reliability and longevity. All went reasonably well for the 1st 12 months as I enjoyed the comfort, performance and relative economy from the big car on long motorway ...
