Post 05 E320CDI should I or shouldn't I?

Hello. I am debating buying a 2005 E320CDI with 35,000, one owner, and trading in my 02 Lexus 300 Sportcross. The Lexus is very dependable and requires low maintenance but bores me. I have had MB in the past, 2002 and older and not very good luck with them mechanically, but I felt like the king of the road when driving one and always felt very safe. I guess my question is is this a car that should last a long time with proper maintenance and garaging it when not in use? I have been looking up review and either people love them and have very little problems or hate them and have a lot of problems with them -- it could be the owner too! lol Anyway, also wondering if my indy mechanic can service this car. That is important because I want to keep him in business... Any experiences are very much appreciate. Thank you. - Lance

I sounds like a pretty good gamble to me. But you will get more and better answers to your questions if you scroll down from here (General Mercedes-Benz), look for the sedans section, and then for W211 forum. The actual owners hang out there. Good luck with whatever you decide and welcome to the forum.
