For Sale: 1999 E320 - 125K miles - $5k

Gold exterior/gold interior. No dents or dings. Looks and drives beautifully, but has that power window/power seat/power mirror issue that I'm not qualified to troubleshoot.

Vehicle is located in Long Island, NY.

Call Rob at (631) 399 - 6166.

Buoy, oh Buoy. Here's how to sell a Benz on this forum. First, lots of pics. Second, lots of history, starting with how long you've owned the vehicle and what you know about the previous owner. Third, an honest status report on what is wearing on the vehicle and will soon need to be maintained or replaced. Plus, you've kinda shot yourself in the foot by dropping the price by a grand in 7 hours. Now everyone will wait for the next $1,000 drop.

Especially since I drive all the way out to Shelter Island every other weekend just to enjoy my car, it would be no problem to see this car drop another 1k and pick her up...once we see all of the above stated.

$3k might be ok....

$3k might be OK, but no lower than that.

I bought the car from a dealer 3-4 years ago with 91k miles, I'm told there was a single prior owner.

The plastic hood release handle is worn, I pull the cable by hand to open the hood. There's only one key.

Not really sure what else there is to tell, I'm picking up an 07 S550 on Friday so I figured I'd sell this one. I love this web-site so I just figured I'd give you guys first dibs.

I'll go ahead and list it locally too. Thanks for the tips, I appreciate it.

Could you describe the power mirror/lock/window issue a little more? Any other problems? My father might be interested in snatching it up.

Wow a 40% price drop in 25.5 hours!

Seriously though pictures would really help your sale.

The power windows/door/seats issue is the one discussed at length on the site. It was suggested that there might be moisture in the battery area, or that one of several control modules might be at fault.

Only the passenger rear window works, the others do not.
