Looking at a 2009 E350 Wagon, thoughts?

I think I will check this one out tomorrow. Any thoughts, recommendations? Spent the day driving volvo wagons. Would love to stay with MB. Current 1995 E320 wagon owner.

Used 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon for Sale in Topsfield MA 01983 Topsfield Motor Company

As always, thanks for all feedback!

I would go with a 2011 for a few thousand more or get them down to around $22k.

Overpriced. At the dealer auction, these are selling anywhere from the $16-19k range with those miles.

$22k would be top dollar. $25k is just silly.

I'm concerned about the balance shaft issue. I ran the VIN through a website but it was in Russian so I couldn't really understand it. Is there a way to know if the issue has been addressed? Would there be some sort of documentation? Also, someone suggested I get a PPI. Would love to but that can be a little difficult logistically. Am I really taking a risk by not?

As always thank you for your feedback!

Model Description: E-KOMBI
Model code: 211,287
Catalog: 65J
Engine: 272 972 31 152 154
Transmission: 07 722 676 668 051
Front axle: AL989081027572
Order Number: 0970531207
Product Number: 7762783

As far as I can tell any engine # below 272-30 would be affected. This one is 272-31 so it should be good.

Im not paying for an engine rebuild if I am wrong. Just saying.

Ha! Thank you and I won't hold you responsible. Don't think this is the car for me. Drove nice but was cosmetically a little beat.
