Potential CL300 Buyer - Need Help!!

**I MEANT C300 NOT CL300*

Hello all.

I currently own a Chevy Avalanche but want to downsize. Test drove the Camaro today but saw a used C300 (2010, 20K Miles) on the lot and test drove it also. Incredible. So I'm going to a MBenz dealer tomorrow and going to look at the base C300.

Here's 2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 For Sale | St. Petersburg FL .one. Looks nice. I've never bought a Mercedes before (well, just owned two avalanches, I'm 23) so not sure if negotiation is the same. Do they come off MSRP or no? You can talk the Chevy down plenty but I know Mercedes is in a different class and don't want to overpay. I'd really like to get that one for 32k or is that just wishful thinking? Also, everyone complains (on google) that the maintenance is ridiculous. I heard one person say about $8K per year. Sounds absurd and don't believe it. Also, wishful thinking or if you keep current with oil changes and such you should be okay?

Thanks for all the help. Going to try and buy one tomorrow!

Ask the people who already own one on this sub forum:

I tried to look for that forum but the 204 threw me off. Not familiar with the terms.

Thanks again and will post there.
