Mercedes-Benz E-Class W210 (1995 - 2002)

Last updated 7 April 2014

Good engines and good to drive.
Severe, catastrophic rust problem, body and structure; even brake pipes and fuel delivery lines.
Updated 25 May 2013

Nearside front suspension wishbone collapsed on 2001 E55AMG. (Treat this as a reminder to check the front suspension of W201 E Class regularly for notorious weakening by rust.)

The main problem with this model is rust. The car requres very thorough examination. The rust occurs in body panels and structurally. Front suspension spring perches can shear off. Be very wary indeed of any W210 that has just been painted.
