What to check and expect? Vehicle is under 100k
Have never owned a V8 merc . Does this model also have the dreaded wiring harness issues? Headgasket? Any input would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Try a search - lots of good info. No head gasket problems on the 420. Wiring harness has problems but generally outlasts the 320s and isn't that big a deal - under $500 and good for the life of the car. When in doubt get an inspection.

Do a search. It's a very good car that is talked about here on a regular basis. Aside from a couple issues, they are among the best cars that Mercedes has made in recent memory.
