Just curious, as our 23 yr old Nissan won't be here for another year, and the 2003 E500 has cost us an average of 3k per year for the last three years. The Nissan has 96k, and the other has 67k, just crossed on the way to the shop. The Nissan has been super cheap to keep in top form, but it is rusting out. The E class has just been a nightmare... I think this may be the last year without AWD or 4wd... Thanks in advance. I really appreciate it.
