W140 concerns and questions

Hello All !
New to the group today. I have an 95 E320 wagon, and am contemplating the purchase of a 98 S320. Its has 193k on it, decent records, and 3 local owners. Has some issues to be dealt with, but one item that concerns me is the A/C has a random coming and going while driving, as in it fades but comes on immediately again every few seconds. Its steady while sitting,so I am expecting a contact issue womewhere as it does seem to coincide with bumps in the road.It also will not work on the highest fan speed setting, only the next lowest setting and below, and in auto mode. Still no max fan speed. Owner says its a 200 dollar fix. Also, it appears this car has NEVER had a transmission replacement. Should I be alarmed ? This is a US Spec, LWB S320Thanks for any advice !
