2002 Kompressor, 55k, $11k


I'm new to the Mercedes world, I have a 2005 mazda3 but I need to lower my payments (moving in with fiance, dad cut me off, I'm a full time student and I work 40 hrs a week so yeah, need help lol) I know nothing about Mercedes, besides that I love them and they are great cars, but I found a really nice red Kompressor, 2002 for roughly $11k. It has 55k miles. I need to know what I should be looking for - are they reliable? how much am I looking at for repairs if needed?? Anyway to tell if something is wrong with it? Like I said, I am self sufficient and this car payment would be less, but if its gonna end up costing me more in repairs I'd rather pass as much as I love this car. I just cant afford to put myself in a negative situation... Anyone experienced with this, I really would like some advice or help.. Thanks so much in advance!!

If you are looking to lower your payments then stick with your Mazda. When you factor in the continuing repair costs associated with a low quality C class (02 was a VERY bad year for the C), shop time billed at $80-150/hour, and just plain bad build quality, you will be very disappointed with the car. The Mazda3 is a good car for the price. Stay with it. Its no less than 10 times more reliable then an 02 krapressor.
