Slim pickings today. This clean 2012 Mercedes-Benz E350 stood out.

The ad copy is, uh, concise, but we learn the seller is based in Michigan and asking $10,000. We know the mileage is 99,000 and the car is "clean" with new brakes and tires.

Oh, and it's Mercedes-Benz pre-owned certified.

That's about it. Guess you'll have to click here to check it out.

    My 16-month ago ordered vehicle is almost here. It's probably my "forever/last bought" new car. But this gen MB E-Series is on my bucket list a couple of years down the road. The design is quite beautiful before MB got all funky inside with tons of doodads.

  • Jalop1991 take longer than expected.Uh-huh. Gotcha. Next step: acknowledging that the fantasies of 2020 were indeed fantasies, and "longer than expected" is 2024 code word for "not gonna happen at all".But we can't actually say that, right? It's like COVID. You remember that, don't you? That thing that was going to kill the entire planet unless you all were good little boys and girls and strapped yourself into your living room and never left, just like the government told you to do. That thing you're now completely ignoring, and will now deny publicly that you ever agreed with the government about.Take your "EV-only as of 2025" cards from 2020 and put them in the same file with your COVID shot cards.

  • CanadaCraig My 2006 300C SRT8 weighs 4,100 lbs. The all-new 2024 Dodge Charge EV weighs 5,800 lbs. Would it not be fair to assume that in an accident the vehicles these new Chargers hit will suffer more damage? And perhaps kill more people?
  • Akila Hello Everyone, I found your blog very informative. If you want to know more about [url=
  • Michael Gallagher I agree to a certain extent but I go back to the car SUV transition. People began to buy SUVs because they were supposedly safer because of their larger size when pitted against a regular car. As more SUVs crowded the road that safety advantage began to dwindle as it became more likely to hit an equally sized SUV. Now there is no safety advantage at all.
