2004 E500 question about cost of maintenance

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum. I owned a Mercedes many years ago and am highly considering buying a 2004 E500 with 41,000 miles. I have been told that there are more problems with this car than its worth. What typically goes out first? Any comments would be helpful.

Probably best to navigate down the page to the W211 forum which is specific to that car. Read a few posts, pose your inquiry there.

I have a 210, if I was going to the 211 I would buy 05 or newer, most of the bugs were worked out by then.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
