I have never owned a Benz before.
However, I have an opportunity to purchase a 2000 - S430 with only 32,000 miles for $17,500. Is this a fair price to pay? If not, then what $$$$$?
I test drove the vehicle and it seemed like a sound car. It has minor scratches. No body damage. The Carfax report came back with positive results. Meaning there were no problems reported.
It has $775.00 in tires that were puchased in 10/08.
The car is located in San Diego,Ca. At a MBenz dealer. It was owned by someone in Coranado, Ca. A city very near San Diego.
I feel like it is a great deal. However........?
What can you tell me about maintenance on a Benz? Cost etc....
Since the car is 8 years old, are there any concerns I should know about? What about hoses gaskets etc. drying and becoming brittle?
I hope to here from you all soon. I am not sure this vehicle will be around much longer. It is for sale on the internet.
Thanks in advance!!!
There is one problem
that the dealer says they'll fix....the instrument cluster panel(speedometer, temp. etc) goes out and then back on.
