I had a C 220 diesel estate, beautiful car but not as roomy as E Class............great engine and handled fantastically in the non winter months but was absolute Krap on ice, snow or slush, got rid of it after just one winter.

The Price is at the top end of what they are worth at that age.

To me that seems reasonable.

Just double check the mileage is legit. :wink:

Then maybe look at getting a Skoda or Toyota, cos Merc's maintenance costs are defo not one of their selling points.
