Considering a 04 C230 or 97 s420 or 98 e320

I am a newbie to the forums, but I was wondering if anyone would way in with their opinions on a few vehicles that I am considering.
1. 04 C230 sedan with 75,000 miles. This car is very clean and being sold by a mb dealership. Price is $12000
2. 07 s420 with 150,000 for $5500. Clean but from a private dealer.
3. 98 e320 with 120000 for $3500. Clean private party.

I know the S class will be more luxury and power, and the e320 will be in the middle. Which of these cars will kill me to maintain, and which one if well maintained will keep my kids college fund in decent shape.

I currently own an Acura MDX. Great reliable car, but I don't need the space and would much rather drive a sedan.

I also live in Minnesota and this would be my daily driver all year long. None of the cars is 4matic.
