Default 350,000+ mile 1987 240

I'm brand new and here to discuss my '87 240 DL with over 350,000 miles.

I deliver pizza in it every day, not the greatest gas mileage, as the tranny won't shift in to 4th, but I love the car. It does have a couple of issues, but I deal. The blower fan went out last year, which may become an issue this winter. The 'pre-heater' hose rusted out and I took it off, so it's a little loud and 'truck-ish.' The undercarriage is rust city, worse than I've seen on any car, ever. I think the least of my concerns is the back passenger brake light will not work for the life of me.. I've re-wired it a number of times, and obviously changed the bulb, but to no avail.

Oh well, I love the car, and it starts up beautifully every day.

It sat out the blizzard of 2008, as did 99% of all vehicles in the area.
