I'm thinking about getting a Mercedes E350 or E400 wagon to replace both my Ford Expedition and my Audi A6, mostly for use as a winter ski car and general foul weather driver, and hauler of stuff. A loaner for the kids when they come back to town as well, and maybe some other visitors. A new one looks to be around $70-72k the way I would option it, but given that I don't plan to put that many miles per year on it, I'm thinking of saving money and buying a used one-- probably right around the end of the warranty period, as that's the big inflection point in value. So 2014-2016. I'm not afraid at all of owning a car like that out of warranty-- I have a couple of good independent german car mechanics who I use for other cars, and I understand how to get things repaired at a reasonable cost, get things rebuilt rather than replaced, etc. It's a different mindset than owning new. Anyone have any experience with these cars, any pitfalls, things to avoid, etc?
