WTB: 2001-2003 MB E320 wagon

Hi all,

New to the forum and looking to buy a 2001-2003 E320 wagon as our family car. We are in the Seattle, WA area.
Did extensive research and know exactly why we want this car and what we are looking for.
Preferences:
*Needs to be in excellent shape and well maintained
*~100K mileage
*Black on black, but will consider any color exterior/interior
*1 owner
*Carfax or autocheck report
*Documentation on service history
*Inspection report would be great, though I have my own personal independent MB specialist that would do another inspection (if car is local).

This is going to be our families primary car, so I want it working and safe. Willing to pay a fair price.

Thanks.

Model year 2000 is the same vehicle. The w210 line was facelifted after 1999. Don't rule them out.

That is a fair point. I will give those 2000s a consideration too.
Always looking for more and more advice, so am happy to accept the vast institutional knowledge on this forum.
thanks.

I am also checking all of the typical sites: autotrader, cargurus.com, cars.com, craigslist, ebay, etc., etc.
Just hoping someone here may know of something else, maybe someone considering selling their car.
Also hoping dealing with someone through this site might be a better experience than a dealer. More knowledge of the car, more care, all that.

introduce yourself in the w210 forum. Those guys may have leads for you.

Great idea. Thank you.
Being new to this forum, I didn't know if there was preference to keep such requests in the classifieds.

I think generally that the forum rules are to keep "for sale" postings to this area but no one will object to you going into the w210 forum and asking for leads...
