2014 wagon purchase

Hi all, this is a continuation of the thread 'the phone call nobody wants to get'. The Audi is now dead and I found a 2014 e350 wagon with 47,000 miles and it's a CPO for about $35,000.


I did all kind of searches using w212 and m276 criteria but nothing comes up as trouble. Is this model a keeper? Can someone talk about anything negative like problems with direct injection system?

Thanks!

A problem with direct injunction I see on Minis is that they get build up in inlet valve area that causes poor idle. The repair is to remove intake and blast with walnut shells

I can't speak about the engine, but my 2010 e63 has been awesome. I would say the 212 chassis is about as good as the legendary w124. Doors shut solid, nothing feels cheap. The seats are comfortable. The ride on my car is likely a bit stiff compared to yours, but still nice enough to haul the family around.

My car has 65,000 miles. I've only had routine maintenance and a serpentine belt flew off one time when I was doing doughnuts in a parking lot.

Like what happens on 603s without a fuel squirt to keep the valves clean?
