I bought mine 1 year ago and have put 20k on the car with no worries. It had 152k at time of purchase. This is my fifth older mbz and is my favorite one of them all.
Fun to drive, great reliability and the interior layout is practical.
I have seen the 3.0 liter inline six go 400k plus with just a top end rebuild.
Things to be aware of: head gasket and engine harness failure.
A small price to pay in overall upkeep, for a car that is safe, has classic lines and can handle high mileage with proper care.

This car looks great, holds everything,
is extremely comfortable and sturdy,
and is totally reliable. I bought it
with 96,000 miles on it and expect
years of trouble-free driving. It's fun
to drive too -- peppy and with a sporty
feel. I LOVE it and recommend it to

This is my 4th Mercedes-Benz product
and it has been troble free. Never
has it stayed over night in a shop.
Maintance is more expensive than
domestics but the quality of the job
is far superior because of the
dealerships' high levels of quality
control. If the car needs new breaks
the dealer does it right the first
time, every time.
