4matic - Yes or No

I'm looking at a 99 E320 4matic sedan with 28k from a dealer. Obviously in great condition - some new tread b4 winter is about all I can find.

Okay, okay - the transfer case problems are well documented for the older versions. But the MB sales/service guys are telling me that the newer cars do not have the same problems (starting in 97/98?), and that this 99 version is at least as reliable as a non-4matic E-class.

This car is a perfect match for my driving needs, but then again I could buy a brand new Subaru instead, and never worry about the transfer case for 120k+ miles.

Any tech's out there that can set me straight.

Thanks much - Michael
