F/S 1998 E320 Wagon

We purchased this wagon for my wife new back in 1998 from Atlanta Classic here in Atlanta. She has accumulated 233,000 miles and is in good condition. Problem is, she need some attention which is going to cost more than the KBB valuation.

It has been a remarkably trouble free Mercedes, and I have all the records since day one. I did the majority of the oil changes and always used Mobil One synthetic..changed every 10,000 miles. A/C blows ice cold and tires have less than 10,000 miles (Michelins).

Her biggest issue is leaks. Valve cover gaskets need replacement and transmission connector need replacing. Rear main engine seal is leaking . If it is a seal, it probably is leaking. It has always been garaged and no rust.

This is a vehicle that needs a lot of inexpensive parts (relatively speaking) , but the labor is the major cost. Wagon is available for inspection in the North Atlanta area, or i will be happy to post more pictures if requested. Just shoot me a PM.

Interior (leather) is all original and in fantastic condition. Body is excellent ! NO codes to speak of, but the OIL sensor in the oil pan will need replacing to clear that light. I would not hesitate to drive this car on a long road trip, very reliable and a great ride. See pictures below :

Also, I would like to purchase a W163 (ML320/ML430) to replace this wagon. If you know of a BLACK ML with tan leather in excellent condition please let me know. I have a 99 ML430 with over 350,000 miles which I purchased new and would give it to my wife if I can find one that is rust free and has a good history.

Nice car but a lot of labor hours required. What's the kbb you mentioned?

A seller with no asking price. Ok, I'm a serious buyer, so here is my cash offer: $1,950.00 if your description is accurate and the car looks drives as you say. I can pick it up next Sunday afternoon. Please contact me with a PM if you are interested. Thanks.

Appraised? It's a 18 year old wagon with 230k miles and leaks every fluid imaginable.
