Advice needed on buying 96-2002 mercedes

I am new to the Mercedes world, due to budget looking for 96-2002 models, am wanting a good solid sedan with decent gas mileage and less prone to repairs, any advice on models to look for? I'm in Dallas Texas, seems to be a lot of 280's for sale and a few 320's ???

I had an 97 E320, one of the most reliable, low ownership cost vehicles I've own. You don't see that many in good shape for sale because owners want to keep them. If you find a well maintained one go for it. In my opinion mileage is more important than year.
