Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Mercedes E-Class estate?

The E-Class signals Mercedes' determination to rid itself of the reputation that 'it doesn't make 'em like it used to'. The cabin is solidly screwed together and should be rattle-free.

There are few reported mechanical faults so far, but the E320 CDI can very occasionally suffer starting problems. Instead, owners generally suffer from small and niggling - but wide-ranging - electrical glitches.
