Buy the extended warranty for the 2004 MB
While the final verdict is not in. of course, but the general consensus is that the
2000-2006 model years seem to be the nadir and rock bottom for Mercedes Benz quality, so while it could still be a very safe, comfortable, and even a possibly car without problems, I wouldn't even think about it without also purchasing the longest term and most comprehensive extended factory warranty I could get.
Simply put, there is a pretty high chance you will have claims under the warranty, with a Mercedes Benz of that vintage.
They are wonderful cars when they are running right, and the safety advantage they really do give you over everything else out there is worth serious consideration in making your purchase decision.
