Looking at purchasing a 1998 S320, no service records, prior leased vehicle, 74,000 on the clock. Anything I should be on the look out for? Asking price is $15,250 with a 3 year, after market warranty that look pretty good. Previously had E320 got totalled and looking for replacement. Don't need a headache, as it will be wife's car. Saw it on E-bay, didn't make reserve, had phone number, I called and I am flying in to Indianapolis on Wednesday to pickup. Dk blu with tan hides, looks good on internet.

The S320 is pretty reliable. Although earlier model years have had trouble with leaking evaporators (inside air conditioner heat exchanger) which is $3-4k to replace. But any repairs are usually expensive and involved due to the W140 being a complicated design.
