So far (1800 miles) my E has an intermittent rattle from the dash/driver-side A pillar, which occurs only when the vehicle is cold, and leaky windows in both rear doors. No sign of windshield cracks, no skipping CDs, no scratches in the paneling... but I must say it would take a whole lot of aggravation before it detracted from the fun of owning one.

Reports seem to indicate that the E performs well with loads above 675lbs, and I can't imagine how it could realistically have a load limit that low anyway. As to faults - if you buy from a dealership that is responsive and competent any problems will be resolved without fuss.

In the end, whether you should wait for the 2004 model depends on what you want. Personally I doubt you'll find a vehcile that is certain to be without defect or problems however long you wait and as time goes by, dealers will be getting more and more familiar with servicing and repair issues anyway.
