Quirks? Yup...I had a 1976 and a 1977 300D (5 cylinder Diesels for those 
of you that may not be familiar with the product line), both purchased new.

I had numerous (major) "quirks" with both of them and since then, my 
desire to own another M-B has completely disappeared. Your mileage may vary.

P.S. I DO like my Omni VI option 3 a lot!
