I bought this car at least 3 years ago with 50,000.
Yes, 50,000 from a lady in Encino who passed away.
It has not given me ONE PROBLEM other than scheduled issues.
My Mom drives it and has put on at least 30 to 40k.
I cannot express to you enough how well built these cars are.

Purchased model year 1995 E320 wagon in 2003 with 63,000 miles on it. Although it is a wagon, it drives like a sedan and is actually quite fun to drive. The cargo capacity cannot be beat. Primary issue is maintenance and reliability. Just about every part that can break has broken. Spent more on maintenance and repair than original purchase price. From overhauled transmission to the litany of sensors gone bad, this car is not any better than a usually maligned "American" car.

Great car that feels sturdy and smooth. Purchased the car with 69k and Head Gaket, front engine seal and front timing chain cover was all leaking. After fixing those items it started to have electrical problems. The engine wire harness was brittle and arcing under the top engine cover. Then the center vents in the dash stopped flowing air. To fix, $300 up to $1200 depending on the 6 vacuum pods (10 hours labor).

I bought this car with 117,000 mi and it now has 150,000 mi. This is my first MB after Volvos, Saabs, Fords. These cars are engineered very well but that means that everything that can go wrong or wear out has a sensor attached to it, and it can be frustrating troubleshooting problems. I'm a DIY'er and if you are looking for a used trouble free car do not buy a MB. This is a very solid car and excellent in the snow and gas mileage is very good. It also rides beautifully. Do not buy an E class after 1995, they went downhill after that year. If you do buy used try to get an independent mechanic because the 'stealerships' are a real hassle. They think if you drive a MB you are rich.

I bought this car used a couple of years ago
and I love the versatility and the solid build of
the car. I used to drive a Volvo and after
driving a Honda and a Ford previously, I
thought the Volvo was a pretty solid car; until I
got the Mercedes. I feel totally safe in the car.
It is pretty quiet as far as engine noise in the
passenger compartment. However, there is
some noise when going over rough road
probably due to the echoing within the cabin
(rather than being confined within a trunk like
a sedan). My wife and I love the cavernous
interior which allows us to do all sorts of
shopping when needed. It is also a great car
for road trips.
