Don't think you can go wrong with any of those models. W124 do have some years with heads and head gasket problems, W210 have weak plugs on transmission, don't know about W202.
For US I figured out W210 is the best bang for the buck as they prove themselves to be good cars, while with the number of them on the road they sell pretty cheap. That might be different in your country. Good luck on the search.
