Recommendation on Used "E"

About to bury my 91 300D and look for a used "E." My previous car was '82 300 CD so I don't know the track record on used mid-mileage gas cars. My budget is $20k and less which allows '01 or '02 "E" with 50k to 75k. Any recommendations or caution flags?

Need to turn in a rental vehicle and pull the trigger this weekend. Thanks in advance.

For $20,000 or less you should be able to buy any lower mileage 2002 E-Class out there (except an E55). If I had that to spend, I'd look for an E430 but you'll find 10 times more E320s. Watch out for rusted spring perches and rust under the door seals, and I'd check for any open recalls. Overall, these are good cars and you might also ask on the W210 forum below here. Also, try the link below this. Good Luck!

Go get yourself a 00-02 E430. You should be able to find one with around 50k miles for that price. Unless you want another diesel? You could afford a 99 E300D with fairly low mileage. Avoid the NBS 03/04.
