2006 E-350 Wagon
Don't know N_Jay, that's what I was told. First time I saw the car it was on the lift with the engine out, the tranny and exhaust on the floor. Damaged pistons and cracked heads was one of the things mentioned. He didn't know how long the fuel was in the car.

2005 E500 4-Matic Wagon
2005 E500 4matic wagon 196k miles, I've owned it for the last ~40k. Still runs strong.

I haven't really had to do much, and I usually do it myself unless it's December and I have a $150 off $300 service coupon:
Crankshaft position sensor
Fuel pump and sending unit/filter (not sure which was bad, just replaced both)
Broken wire to the air compressor
Front lower control arm bushings and subsequent alignment (I had this done at a shop)

Current issues:
It's telling me to visit the shop for the Airmatic, but it's working fine.
It's also telling me to check coolant levels, which are fine. I'm guessing it's a sensor.
The check engine light is on, I checked the code and it's p0446 : Evaporative System (EVAP) canister vent control valve failure. Apparently it's an emission thing and doesn't affect much, so I'm choosing to ignore it for now.

Overall I absolutely love this car.
Checking back in a year later. 124K miles on the clock. Only new things to add to the list are rear breather cover on the passenger side valve cover, oil cooler gasket, and the front passenger side rotor is warped (again) Im thinking that the CV axle on that side is slightly out of balance and causing the issue. Everything else is new (the CV is a high dollar rebuilt unit) but the caliper isnt stuck, slides/pins are clean and greased. So its gotta be something else. Also the drivers side front door handle is shot (again) Lock/unlock has quite working again. Everything else is as good as gold!

Still absolutely LOVE this car!

For the rotor warping ... check to make sure the disc is seated against the hub completely. If you take the disc off, and clean both surfaces (hub & rotor) very well (and lube somehow, I use anti-seize), and put it back together and see what happens? I had this happen on my right rear -- R&R & clean and all's well 20k miles later.

2007 S550
2007 E350 Sport, 102000 miles. Just purchased 3 weeks ago.

After owning a 2003 E320 for 3 1/2 years and a short adventure with a 2007 S550, I wanted a W211 again.

So far running strong, as it was meticulously maintained by previous female owner at the local MB Dealership.

It's great knowing so many people on here own these vehicles up to 200k miles or possibly more.

I just got it and it was an impulse buy so I didnít do my research and check on that. Hopefully I can get whatever service history there is from MB.

Im pretty sure is was done at some point, just curious what you paid and have you ever heard the saying "The most expensive car is a cheap used Mercedes"?

Ill definitely check this when I am doing new rotors here in the next couple of weeks. I also now need to replace the front bumper as I just lost the bottom half of it in the last snow storm that we had
