What type of risk involved in a 300k 300d purchase?
I'm looking to buy an older diesel mercedes to be a reliable purchase. Where I'm from, these are pretty hard to come by, especially with my budget. I found one I'm interested in, but it has 292k on it. Its going for 2 grand, and from what I can tell, the owner looks to have taken immaculate care of it. Owned by an older man who used it for commuting long distances, it has no rust, no dents, and the interior is perfect. It also went through a certified benz mechanic's check to see if there were any lingering problems and came back with a clean bill of health. Is this thing a ticking time bomb or should I jump at it? Everybody says they can last up to 500 k. To be honest, I just need it to last around 50 more.
Also, it has new glow plugs and brakes.
What are the risks? What are the next problems to come up? Thanks.
