    Something like an 03-04 e240 which I keep seeing for a little over 20k with some 40k or so miles. How expensive will they be to properly maintain and service? are they as reliable as their reputation suggests? any problems in particular I should watch out for when I go look at them? I would definitely take it to a dealer before buying btw.

    Not a bad car, but so boring.

    That's most of the battle right there.

    If you're worried about long term issues find some fanboy websites and lurk before you take one for a pre-purchase inspection.

    :o I know, I just want something reliable, good looking and extremely comfortable though, and the benz seems to fit right in with all I'm looking for.
