I am planning to become a first time MB owner soon, and have been looking at cars in the $12000 to $16000 range, particularly the W126's. My question is pretty general and regards the reliability of 140K mile cars of this class assuming they have been regularly serviced by a qualified MB mechanic.

Alternatively I have heard that the 300E is an exceptionally reliable and durable vehicle. My wife likes the size of the W126, but would I be better off from the standpoint of maintainence costs with a 300E.
