"Ah the legendary OM613. 500k lifetime practically guaranteed with proper maintenance. There's a Youtube video of some drunken Fins trying to kill its 4-cylinder cousin in the 240D. No coolant, no oil, and full throttle. Smoked…"
"Stick to the old red-block 4-cyl rear drive Volvos if you want that legendary durability. They lost their way under Ford and are owned by a Chinese company now. A few people I know who bought one after about 2000 have had nightmarish…"
