Greetings from the Grand Canyon State

My wife's turn to choose a new (to us) car & she has narrowed it down to a C300, a C350 or a GLK (Porsche Caymen I think is out of the loop). Looking at preowned & there are many on the market. Extended MB certification warranty seems a little light IMO. Stepping away from driving Saabs for the last 20 years, the latest a '02 9-5 Aero Sportwagon. Ready for a RWD vehicle in this land of no snow but much heat.

Welcome to Benzworld, if you are looking at the C350 or GLK350 or any model with the 272 engine try to find one that is after 2007 as prior to this they had an engine balance shaft problem and it is an expensive fix.
