Question Late Model (W210) E-CLass Owners, I Need Your Help

For those of you who currently own or have owned a 1999 - 2001 E320 I was hoping you could help me out. My dad is considering purchasing either of those years E-Class and he's asked me to help him. He is also considering a Diesel in stead of the 6, persuade me why one is better than the other. This is strictly reliability, performance won't be a top priority.

1. What mechanical problems have you experienced? (please be specific)

2. When looking at these cars should I be looking for anything in particular (Vibration, corrosion, poor wiring, AC problems etc..)

Before he purchases the car I will first run a carfax report, if it's clean I will do a thorough visual inspection myself to determine if any bodywork was done. If it passes both of these I will then have a different dealer or my mechanic inspect the vehicle. The car will only be purchased with Starmark Warranty to cover future issues.

Everyone, thanks in advance for your help!
