Buying a used MB (I've had three) is like marrying a former playmate of the year; everything depends on what has happened in the meantime. If you are patient and willing to pay a fair price, there are older cars that have been well-kept that will absolute bargains in the long run. There are also "deals" that will be money pits.

W126 only for that price

When your budget is small for a Mercedes you must go older-much older.

$3000.00 is not enough to start the Mercedes Benz Ownership Experience.

Why do I say this:

1-You will not be able to keep the repairs up on this car.
2-You will have a 20+ year old car
3-This older of a car will not impress anyone IMHO!


and get you a newer model. Try and get at least $7500 to $10,000 for your first basic car.

Best of Luck
