Generally good reliability - all W210 E-Class CDI
engines are basically the same, 200 and 220 are
4-cyl, with 270 one cyl is added so it's 5 and with
320 one more is added so it's 6 cyl (exception is
E400 CDI which is V8).
Fuel efficiency is very good, in Germany most-sought
after is 270, good balance between cost and power
output, _secret tip_ is 220.
200.000+ km seem to be no problem, 300.000+ is
not uncommon and there's a number of taxis with
more than 500.000+ km.
Problems may be with the extensive electronics
in these cars so check all functions and have the
error code memory read out.
Beware of odometer fraud!!!
