Just bought my first Mercedes (E class).....

Hi everyone - my trusty old Mondeo died just before Christmas and so took the chance to buy a cheap car on eBay as I was sure there would be a lot less buyers looking during the festive period......had a lot of choice and was looking for something similar but in the end bought a cheap 2001 E220 CDI that was a dealer trade in for £3,000 on Christmas day...(book value over £5,000 in a dealer showroom).....seems okay but various warning lights showing and suspect one of the belt tensioner pulleys may need changing as it sounds like its bearing is noisy and the belt at the front of the engine looks fairly worn....fingers crossed I have not bought something that is going to cost me a lot of money to keep going as I paid similar for the Mondeo 5 years ago and got very cheap and trouble free motoring out of that....

Congrats on your first Benz. I too am new to owning a Mercedes and must say I'm glad that I bought one.
