Need help - A Class purchase
I am new to this site. My wife wants to buy a Mercedes A Class as we have a growing family and we need a bigger car. We are not sure what size engine or actual model yet but our budget is £5000-£6000 and we would preferably like no more than 50,000 miles. Its more that likely we will be getting a 2005-06 plate.
I have spoken to a few people who have told me to steer clear as apparently after 50,000 they are prone to problems. I find this hard to believe with MB as its always come across to me a solid top brand but I do understand that its still a car and every car can have problems.
Is this a good family car for me to buy? I dont want to be forking out on expensive repair bills. I would also appreciate it if someone could let me know what is the most economical model of that age. Thanks in advance. Mic
