FS 1998 W140 (S320) $5,500 151,511 miles

The car is an easy 8 out of 10. Why not a 10 out of 10? There are a couple of minor issues that don't bother me, but someone might find annoying. The car has a pretty nice service history. The previous owners and I, have kept a very good record of all the maintenance done on the vehicle.

The good:
The important stuff! The engine, transmission, heating/cooling, electrics are all working great. I wouldn't be surprised if this car makes 300K miles with only routine maintenance done on the vehicle.

The bad (or should I say annoying to some):
Key Fobs don't work
Cup holder is useless
Rims are scratched
The automatic close door assist needs to be reset every so often (I adjusted the pump once, but the thought of adjusting it again doesn't appeal to me)
The normal wear and tear on the exterior that is 17 years old
Also, the car was in a front end collision on the passenger side. There was no frame damage or anything major damaged (this was done by the previous owner).

I'm pricing the car at $5,500 because I'm ready to sell. I'm a 2 person household with 4 cars and I don't need 4. I bought the car when it had 90K miles and I've put 60K miles on it. I used it as my daily driver and kept the maintenance up on the vehicle. It really is a very nice car. Feel free to call/text me with any questions: 302 858-7269. I live in the Bethany Beach Delaware area.

Any rust on the car or rust where the previous accident happened?
Also what you mean exactly by key fobs don't work? Do you mean if I get new one from the dealer it still won't work?

There is no rust on the vehicle and I would have never known there was a repair done if the previous owner didn't tell me.

I changed the batteries in both key fobs and went through the steps to reprogram the keys. It didn't work and it wasn't the biggest issue for me, so I gave up.

I'm lowering the price to $2,500. I'd really like to get rid of this vehicle

Nice deal. I would be all over this if it wasn't in such a remote location.
