What do you think of this E-Class Mercedes?

Hi, what's your opinion on 2008 models E 200 Mercedes-Benz automatic petrol? The one I'm looking at has 50k miles on the clock and is priced at around €15k.

Hi Sean,

A nice car, and that price looks very sharp, but tread carefully. The 2002-onwards E-Class gave Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes owners no end of trouble, with anything electrical or electronic being exceptionally suspect. Now, the good news is that the 2006-on version of that E-Class was significantly revised and a whole lot better, but still check every single button and electrical connection to make sure it's all working properly. Make sure too that the gearbox and rear suspension are both working smoothly and not making any untoward noises - both are weak areas.
