Wow....what a buy...what does the interior look like? Is it a diesel? there are two areas of concern when I buy a car....what does the interior smell like? and what does the exhaust smell like? Check underhood for evidence of a prior overheat...then take a look at the coolant color and level...the crankcase oil smell and color...the transmission fluid color and level...if you've a mechanic buddy get a compression check done comparative analysis of each cylinder....get a smog check...have them put the car on a dynamometer to check the performance of the engine and smog devices~

I could check for recalls if you'd give us the year in question~

there is a lighting recall on this model~ benz-s420-4dr-sedan-recalls.html


The w126 is a fabulous car IF it's been maintained. The price of admission is nothing as you can easily drop that at your first service. I HIGHLY recommend taking any used car to a dealer before you sign the papers and pay them $250 for a pre-purchase inspection. at least then you'll know what the car needs now.
