My pre-owned E320 is beautiful but with only 76k mi I have had major repair in '11 and 2 more to come i.e valve cover gasket replacement and what sounds like a brake boot so I've been told. I've had it for 5yrs, a light driver and keep on top of my maintenance but these problems are huge and getting costly and they say it's not even broken in! Bah!
