benz reliable after 100k milage?

03 clk320 has 110k mileage on.. it's very clean. i am assuming.. alot from highway driven..

is it worth buying? (price is pretty good) i'll get bumper to bumper 4 year warranty if i get this car.

it's my first MB.. is it reliable after 100k?

ANY car that has done more than 100K will show due wear & tear. Personally, I would look for a low mileage car. There are quite a few deals around, so do not rush in!

110k miles on an '03? that's about 36k-ish miles a year. i would skip that car, look elsewhere. unless that clk is selling for about $10k warranty included, find a lower mileage one and save yourself $$$ down the road.

Well, that is undoubtably highway mileage, the easiest on any car.

I tend to like the young high mileage Benz's because they are the deepest discounted with the easiest use.

I would go for one with all the service records as an insurance on good care.

Good luck

If the car has service records it should be a great deal. Check the nada, KBB and the bank to see what it's worth. I would not be afraid of a late model high mileage car that is well maintained,
Good Luck!

Name a car that's reliable after 100K.

Is it as nice a car as a Benz?

You get what you pay for. Always.

My 01 C320 has 110'000kms on the clock and uses 1 liter of oil for every 3'000kms.
