A C240 is a C Class chassis W202 and W203 which runs from 1996 to about 2007. The C240 has a 2.6 litre V6 in all the years. Minor tweaking and upgrades are on the newer ones but it is essentially the same basic engine. The badge name C240 is absent on the W204. Think the new engine is a 2.5 V6.

An E240 is an E Class that ran the model versions W210 and W211. It also had the same 2.6 litre V6 based on the M112 block.

Note too that these engines are twin spark and make surprisingly admirable torque for the size. Two spark plugs help level out the efficiency.

One of my favourite V6 engines.  [thumbsup]

Are there any major concerns with the E240?... such as common repair issues, etc.?

Barring the suspension niggles with our roads... very little goes wrong with this engine.

As a V6 though, valve seats and seals tend to go when high up on the miles. Cheap parts to buy, but labour intensive to replace.

I'm a bruk pocket with little money to spend if any at all... i'm getting a great deal on a 2004 E240, owner migrating but i'm not sure if it better to cut my eye pass it and get maybe a 96 Mark 11 or something that cost less to repair and maintain.

Why are your thoughts... should I pass up this deal and get something cheaper or should I go for this dream car and drive with my fingers crossed???

Benz on a whole can be costly to maintain if it is not treated well. The C Class is considered the entry level then gradually you migrate to E, S, M or G class. But ensure the one you are getting is solid. These high end cars cost money to maintain because parts don't go easily, but when they do  [alarm] [alarm]
