#1049 of 1173 1999 320 e 4matic wagon
Jun 23, 2008 (4:37 pm)
I found a nice 320 e wagon with 55,000 miles, one owner and dealer maintained... it seems nice and the miles are low. I think the car would suit my needs very well and the asking price is around 12,500. seems like a good deal considering the milage. also consumers reports is not as harsh on this year mercedes as it is on most others.. is there any suggestions of what i should expect in maintenance over the next few years? any problems that are looming. there are quite a few independent mercedes repair shops, are they the best approach to long term maintenance. can i / should I get an extended warranty on an almost 10 year car? and suggestions or observations would be greatly appreciated!

I bought a 98 E320 4 matic wagon 12-05 with 70K and love it.....absolutely no problems....the esp light comes on periodically but I have driven it with it for 55+K miles and no problem......buy that car as fast as you can. I didn't have any papers to show maintenance but could tell from the perfect condition that is was well cared for. I use an independent dealer as I wasn't happy with the level of customer service at my dealership but that can happen with any kind of car. If you just listen to your car you will learn it and know. I have put new tires and a couple of fuses and that is all. It is my first mercedes and not my last.

I have a 1991 300CE that the Cruise Control does not work. Does anyone have any idea which piece of the Cruise control might be the problem. I have checked the easy things like the fuses.
#1053 of 1173 Preset Satellite Stations
Jul 14, 2008 (10:01 am)
I just leased a 2008 E350 with satellite radio installed. I've configured the steering wheel controls to run through the preset memory stations for the radio and it works fine when listening to the FM or AM bands. However, when I'm listening to Satellite, the steering wheel contols go through each station, not the presets. Anyone else have this problem?

What you guys think, should I buy this 99 E320 model with 100K on it? I test drove the car and tried to speed in the highway, but it seemed reluctant to go over 70M/hour with ease. however, I did try it from 10 miles/h to 75m/hour under 6 seconds. I am not sure if this would signify that engin is in relative good health. I am thinking to buy this car for drive around the town and the dealer is asking around 7500, the front bumper cover may need to be replaced, yet the rest of the car seems in great condition. Is it worth? and you MB owners should I look into paying for repairs right of the bat? thanks
