Looks pretty nice but rust... offer $1500 After checking out the rust  Might be 
reasonable considering rust and work to be done

$500 resolves his tired of sitting in my driveway issue and gets you something 
potentially OK with some work

Re: [MBZ] 2004 E320 Wagon?

Anyone have any info about the above, good or bad traits, etc.? 
Things to worry about or look for?  It runs smooth and easy without 
any problems I see.  I know they're not diesels but do the parts 
cost a arm  leg or just an arm?  It has ~140K miles, fully loaded 
starting  asking price is $12K.


I'm still researching everything - my wife will be the primary 
driver - to  from work...   Her 91 300D has 250K mi and while still 
running great I worry something unforeseen will happen.


Not planning to 'pull the trigger' any time soon but have started the process.

Thanks -
Larry
91 300D


As long as the the tin worm does not eat your 91, it still has lots 
of life in it.  Most merkun cars of that vintage can go to 300k with 
oil changes.  I've had two OM603s with over 400k on them and they 
both still run/ran strong.


I did a compression test on the first one at 300k because I was 
getting a little nervous.  425 PSI in each cylinder.  (factory new 
engine spec.)


I say your current car is better than the 2004.  (nothing against the 
2004, but it is a gasser)
