They are money pits after 50,000 miles! Stay away from European makes until you have deep pockets! Just the plain facts, i see it all the time. They are sharp rides but dont buy one as your first car IMO.....maybe 'try' to dream about Asian or American cars for awhile..

So is that why 03-04 e320 or e500 with 100,000 miles or less sell for cheap prices?

Do you want status or a dependable car? Consumer reports 'used car buyers guide' might help you with your decision.
