2005 Mercedes Benz E320 CDI

$12000 OBO:

Located in Chanhassen, MN

2005 Mercedes Benz E320 CDI
2005 E320 CDI
3.2L in-line 6 diesel (201 hp, 369 lb-ft torque)
Brilliant Silver with Ash Leather interior
5 spd automatic transmission
141k miles


I purchased this car from the original owner in the fall of 2010 after a nationwide search for a great condition W211 E320 CDI, as I wanted a diesel for reliability and fuel economy. I traveled to Traverse City, MI to make the purchase from the original owners. The car had not seen a winter as they lived in Indian Wells, CA during the winters, which was another reason I purchased this car.

I have used this car as a daily driver since purchase, aside from the past 3 winters, where I did not drive it and drove my Jeep instead. I have sold my Jeep in Dec and have daily driven this car since, currently equipped with General Altimax winter tires.

As you can see below, I maintained this car with the intention to keep it forever. Using only the finest MB approved oils (Mobil 1 Formula M 5W40 and Total Quartz 5W40) and followed all maintenance schedules either doing the work myself, Imola Motorsports, or Stellar Autoworks maintain this vehicle.
