Need advise 1994 E320 wagon

Hi,

I might have the opportunity to get a used 1994 E320 wagon. 180k mi, the outside looks good, the actual owner complains that when stepping hard on the accelerator the car sputters....

Should I stay away from this car?

This car has 180k miles, how long do these car last if maintained properly?

Thank you.

F

"Maintenance" on these cars means replacement of some major components.

Nothing about doing lots of oil changes prevents this.

These cars require replacment of engine wiring harness and it's pretty likely there will be a headgasket leak. Expect also HVAC problems and maybe trans problems.

Biggest factor in purchasing these is not so much maintenance records as it is records that these major things have been recently fixed.

Thank you for the quick reply.
We ll do a prebuy inspection on the car.
I was wondering if there was some other major issues with that year model of the wagon.
I won t drive the car that much but i like the space available for the 2 kids and the dog.

Thanks again
