Customer Question

I just bought a 1985 MB 300CD, I have had a 1983 300SD and a 1980 450Sl. My question is, how slow is the 300cd supposed to be, should it be similar to 300SD?

Hi, the CD and the SD are similar in performance. The CD should be a little better from 0-60 than the SD as it is a lighter car but they are pretty close in performance. If the CD seems sluggish you should have the fuel filters checked and have the turbocharger checked.Let me know if you have any questions.
