'99 c43 amg

I'm thinking about purchasing the c43 but concerned about the mileage of 143k. I know the engine can take it, but anything else I should be aware of? I have looked at his records and all the services have been done. He is the second owner. The interior and exterior are in +++ shape. Thanks for any input you can give. Oh, he's asking $7k.

Those engines are having at least 300,000 miles life expectancy. I would more worry about aging gaskets and rubber parts.
Go to the model section for the reviews from actual owners.

Engine is going to be fine. You just need to be concerned with the age on everything else. But, that is the same with any car with 143K miles on it so if you are ok with that level of mileage, I know I would be, then go for it.

And like always, see if you can get the price down some.

Check front suspension, motor and transmission mounts, flex disc, and if the transmission fluid hasn't been serviced be sure you do that (but not a flush as some people find this causes problems).
