Questions About 190E
Hi There.

I am new to this forum. I have a couple of questions about the Merc 190E. I am thinking of getting myself one. Firstly, can anyone let me now what kind of fuel consumption can I expect from this car? I'm getting an auto transmission ... 2000cc engine. For instancs, how many kms would RM50.00 take me?
Also, is it an expensive car to have ... in terms of maintenance. Are spare parts expensive? Are they easily available?
How about handling, steering, brakes?

Any kind of information about this car will be helpful. Please do write in.

Thank you.

Re: Questions About 190E
welcome bro to the club...enjoy ur stay n do update your profile for us....

190e is a gud car to own. nice ride and cruising. Full tank can go up RM 80 - 90+....u can get 350++km for city drive (from my previous experience with my 201) i never let the fuel gauge to touch the bottom line....

maintenance wise, for me ok for an old chap car...not much to repair due to the very careful of the previous owner......

theres a lot of mybenzers here who own a 201 model and lot of sifus that can lead u with lot of infos....

Hi Mark77,

Welcome to the club.
About 190E, spares are plenty...maintenance macam waja...

But if possible look for the best condition you can find...

Avoid a non running car as this could burn holes in your pocket and wallet to repair and restore....I've experienced it!

Hi,
Get one in a decent condition and budget RM10K-15K to get the car into tip top condition. Then you can drive it daily without much worry. If you try to avoid it, the car car will bite your wallet..

It is a good car for me. The problem comes from the owner, ie wheater the car was properly maintained or not.

Some Introduction article for W201 lovers

The Mercedes-Benz W201 was introduced in November 1982 as the Mercedes-Benz 190. £600 million was spent researching and developing this car with Mercedes-Benz acutely aware that a failure of this model could easily bring down the rest of their model range and ultimately the entire company’s reputation. By Mercedes-Benz's own admission, the 190 was 'massively over-engineered'. They were not interested in competing for one or two customers to switch from Ford or Rover, but for hundreds, even thousands, of customers suddenly to find a new side to Mercedes-Benz with a new image of compact executive cars. These new customers were not wrong. The UK market was kept waiting up to 12 months longer than mainland Europe to get the 190s into the showrooms, and as soon as the vehicles arrived in showrooms, they were sold. Local 'red tape' in Bremen prevented MB from building the 190 there as they wanted, so production was started in Sindelfingen at a maximum capacity of just 140,000 units per year. Eventually after just the first year, Bremen was cleared for production of the 190 and these lines replaced the commercial vehicle lines at Bremen which included the first running modifications since its release.
The model was a single 4 door saloon/sedan body type which was designed to fill a hole in the model range below the W123 Mercedes E-class series. It was quickly dubbed "the Baby Benz". However, despite being introduced as the cheapest Mercedes passenger car, this did not show in the engineering. Amongst the items that were a first for any Mercedes was the 190's patented 5-link suspension at the rear, used in subsequent E- and C- class models, and developments of which are still in use today in Mercedes road cars. It featured front and rear anti-roll bars, as well as anti-dive and anti-squat geometry. The 190 was also available with airbags, ABS brakes and seatbelt tensioners which were very advanced safety features at the time.

Happy Benzing..
