2 newb questions

I need a new car [Merc] ... I don't/won't buy one locally cause I'd be getting gouged ...

How do you buy a car out of state without getting suckered?


where can I get a proper maintenance guide on what to do?
I want to be thorough when maintaining my car, like a 60 year old man . What can I do? Thanks.

It would help if you took time to fill out your profile and let us know where you are and whether you currently own a Mercedes vehicle. It may be that someone can recommend a seller that you can trust. You must live in an interesting place if you feel all the car sellers in your area are thieves or liars or worse.

You buy a car out of state without getting suckered just like you buy a car anywhere else without getting suckered; you do your due dilligence and inspections before you buy the car so you know exactly what you are purchasing.

Maintenance schedules either come with the car you buy (they are in the owner's manual) or you can get them easily from MBUSA.

Since I'm a 60 year-old man, I'm not sure whether your last comment was a compliment or an insult. Since it involves a stereotype about mature folks, I'll assume it was an insult.

Good luck on your search.

the 60 year old comment was a compliment.
