I just got the Day One report. This particular heap has a functioning cruise control, and is still reading almost 3/4 tank at 208 miles. Nephew loves the thing. It's ugly, but mechanically solid and the interior looks very good for 108,000 miles and 18 years. Power driver's seat still works in all directions. Valuable feature in a 1000 mile per week commuter. I had thought of buying him that $500 240D in Columbus, but it would have been a pain if I drove 300 miles to find out I couldn't make the 240D go over 30mph.
