2000 S430

I'm looking at possibly purchasing my first MB from a private owner for my mother-2000 S430 w/ 70K miles. This would be the 4th owner of the car so I need help from the connoiseurs.

1. is this price a steal or not?
2. how long does a merc last if you take care of it?
4. at what mileage does maintenance on this car start to skyrocket? (current owner is unsure of maintenance records since he's only had it for a few months and bought two new S-classes) The title is still clean (I think)
5. [insert any other unanticipated question....]

RE: 2000 S430

Sorry, price was supposed to be in the subject line.
He's asking $23,000.
I just talked to the 2nd owner and he bought it from a used car dealer (not MB certified) but says he loved the car, had no problems w/ it.
