I have a chance to buy a 2001 E320 for about $2700 . It says it only as 105K miles. It is a dealer. I=The adds says it run great and there are no know problems. The only issue is a dent about the size of a grapefruit in the right rear quarter panel. Otherwise the upholstery and other feature looks good in the pictures.
ANY suggestions on what I should watch out for? Is it OK for me to bring my OBD2 tester and check it out?
TIA Dan Mauch
Absolutely not, unless you already have enough tools in your garage to run an automobile repair shop, and you're willing to do all the maintenance and repairs yourself, and are patient enough to do them because there will be plenty of repairs and plenty of research.
I bought my 2002 S600 for $3000, my 1999 E320 for $2500, and my 1997 E420 which also had 105K miles for $1600, so I think you can do better price wise.
If you like these old cars like I do, then at least buy a more thorough scanner like this one,
FOXWELL OBD2 Diagnostic Tool Scanner NT520 PRO for Mercedes vehicles incl. Multiplexer 38 PIN connector/adapter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CJY4V6X..._pi1bDbMKA5Y42
and then use it to shop around, you will definitely need when you become an owner anyway lol
Repairs are just too costly with a mechanic otherwise, and I learned to cut better deals because oftentimes you'll have to replace things like tires, rotors and the battery with cars this old, so check those too.
