Question might buy a 2007 E320 Bluetec for $27K...thoughts?

Hi everyone. I'm new here...I joined because I'm considering buying a 2007 E320 Bluetec withe P1 package. It has 51,000 miles on it...one owner, clean carfax. Black exterior, tan interior. Looks to be in incredible condition. I have negotiated a price of right at $27,000 for the vehicle.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I think it's a great deal for this vehicle, but would love to get some of your more expert opinions.

Thanks!

Go for it. My preferred would be 320cdi, but Bluetec is good as well.
Read my "cluster readouts" topic in General about my impressions when I bought 2005 E320cdi.

That's about 1/2 price for a 3 year old car and it sounds good to me. 51,000 miles is nothing in the general diesel scheme of things.

51K miles means it's just out of warranty.

Take it to a dealer for a pre-purchase inspection.

If you buy the car and you know what's good for you, you should become very good friends with this dealer and plan to have dealer servicing.

Listen to Kent because it looks like he has the same engine in his 2007 GL. Another thing to consider: buy a CPO with about the same stats. In my opinion that's the best certified Benz out there (barely out of warranty and a one owner). Mine was 5/53,000 one owner and the CPO warranty paid for itself. I paid to extend it 12 more months to 7/100,000.

It looks like a great price. If you like the car, go for it.
