I have had my '02 for only 2 months, and the only thing I found wrong with it is that the passenger door would not lock. The rod was slightly bent, so the fix took 15 minutes and cost nothing.
Our '98 E320 is in the shop about every three months generally to the tune of $300 to $1500 (getting a new AC compressor as we speak), and that's including the fact that I do as much work as I can (brakes, window regulators, blower resistor, etc). We keep it only to give to our daughter to learn to drive in as it seems to be a pretty safe car, and it's a competent car to drive. In contrast, our 2002 Ford Excursion Diesel has only had oil changes in the last four years - not one single repair. At 77k miles still on the factory original brakes - not bad for a 7000 lb vehicle that tows now and then.
