Replaced engine on 2012 e350

Dealer has 'used' e350 with 1k miles. It is listed for $10K less than new e350's. Salesperson says its b/c original engine was bad and has been replaced - full 100k mile warranty is being offered as a certified pre-owned. What gives? Does the price concession reflect that carfax will always list this car with an engine problem? Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Welcome to Benzworld, a new E350 that had to have the engine replaced?? I would seriously want to know why, suppose it drove into a flood? if so there would be long term control unit and modules problems, best to find out what caused the damage to start with.
