The poor Frankenheap got itself a case of terminal rust, and so I had been looking for an inexpensive winter beater to replace it. This turned up, and as it was reasonably inexpensive (though broken), had heated seats, got reasonable fuel economy (though not a diesel), was all-wheel drive, and was not black/white/silver, I found myself interested. A contender!
2001 Mercedes E320 4matic - $800This is much newer than I am comfortable with, because cars newer than about 1990 are saturated with custom electronics, which can get uppity, are often NLA past a point, and for which used parts are either just as bad-off as the originals or cannot readily be reprogrammed to serve in a different car. All things I hate. On the other hand, it was not too expensive and had features I am interested in. To wit:

I have nice 2001 Mercedes E320 4matic in nice condition but it's a project, it has transmission issues. I bought the car as a project and have some time and money put into it but lost interest in it and couldn't figure it out, replaced few parts like brake light switch and a shifter. The car does go in gear and drives but sometimes it won't go in gear looks like it goes in limp mode. It does need transmission service done for sure and probably needs a conductor plate and it will probably work great. I was gonna do it but I have no time and money and they are not expensive and you can do it yourself super easy. Other than that it has nice interior and body is good. It has the navigation package.
Trades welcome anything just let me know what you have. Need gone before snow.
This needs to be towed because it won't drive for long.
Let me know if you have more questions. Mainly looking for cash, interested in trade let me know what you got ????
Though this car has a 'smart' key, it's still something you have to insert physically and twist, it's not pushbutton-start, which I loathe.
I decided to name it Barney because it's purple on the outside, and kind of slimy and gross on the inside. (It'll clean up fine, but I won't bother until/unless the mechanicals can be taken care of.)
