Thats just it we are comparing a 91 vs 97-98 year. A 3.8L V6 from GM is very reliable simply put!! Granted its no german engineered car, however I can get a 97-98 Grandprix for about the same price as a 300E. I understand that any car is going to require a little maintance when being 12+ years old, but valve jobs, transmissions, and running rough that no one can figure out is harldly little maintance. I appreciate you guy telling me how it is on owning one of these cars but I just don't have the money to pay for the repair bills at this time on such a high mileage car. This is what one of the users on this board told me. "If you just want a reliable winter car, this is not the car for you. Unless major things have been done to it, the car will need major work. You will need to fix an oil consumption problem most likely, and the suspension will be worn in the front and rear. The AC shouldn't matter to you if you are driving in the winter only?"
