Lots of code saved in the OBDII system

Hi Everyone,

I'm contemplating buying an used 2002 E320 SE from a vendor in Florida.

The car looks great both inside and out, but I had a local shop do a ppi all the same.

He gave the car good recommendation with the exception of the following:

a non-working passenger side mirror (bad motor), bad bushing/ control arm, and a slightly leaking rack and pinion steering.

While I like the car overall, I can't get over all the codes that the ppi pulled up.

Can you guys take a look and let me know if you think there's something seriously wrong with this vehicle?

I don't know any Mercedes of that era that doesn't seep a bit from the steering rack. Unless a mechanic looked at it you would never know as it never hits the ground and would be a decade before that seepage would require a top off.
