Ladies and gentlemen, I need your opinions. When you buy a demo, say, with only a few hundred km/miles on it from an MB dealership, should you consider yourself buying a new car or a second hand/used car? Or is a demo in yet another category? Legally, it is a second hand/used car, right? Thank you in anticipation.

RE: Demo?


Legally it may be technically "new" though because it has never been registered with a end user.

The price should be a great price on a new car, or a high price for a used car


Now: 2010 GLK350 4Matic Then: 2003 C320 4Matic, 2006 E320 CDI, 2000 E320, 1994 E320, 1991 190E, 1985 300D, 1983 300D

RE: Demo?

Legally, for the purposes of warranty, financing, etcetera, a "demo" vehicle is still a new car - if you buy one, you'll be the first legal owner. Of course, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't use the fact that the car was a demo when you negotiate the price.
