Hello everyone, I am newbie to this forum and about to buy a 1995 E320 Wagon with 116 K miles on it. 2nd owner, full service history (independent MB specialist), synthetic oil change every 3500 miles, no rust, new brakes (pads, rotors, sensors), new front springs (? is this a common issue) new power antenna and all electricals working (except CD changer). I will have the car checked by MB, but before I do that, is there any well known issue / expensive to fix items that should make me run away? Thanks for your help.

The only out-of-the-ordinary/well known/expensive fix on this car is the engine wiring harness.
With time and heat, it becomes brittle and cracks, causing all sorts of engine related electrical problems.
Make sure it has been replaced on the car you're looking at.
If not, deduct close to $1,000. from the selling price.

I walked away from the car... Rust was creaping away in too many spots (not visible at first sight, hence the owner's "no rust" description).

Really thank you am933 for that up to date. I doubted of that news because you did not post after last october. But, depends on your budget, you could find a body 210 wagon, between years 2000 and 2002 and get a far better car.
