Thinking of buying a used Mercedes, need help
Greetings. I am possibly in the market for a used Mercedes...the allure of no longer having car payments, and going the used route makes a certain amount of sense. But need some help narrowing my search.
After doing some research, I think I am most interested in the CLK series.
A few I have found online that look interesting:
2002 CLK430 coupe
2002 CLK430 convertible
2004 CLK500 coupe
However, I have heard for awhile there were reliability issues in the early to mid 2000s, but that it is was also model dependent...
Ideally I am looking to spend no more then $10k, $8k would be perfect, and looking for something with less then 75k miles that was well cared for. I have someone nearby that can help with maintenance and any repairs...so I wouldn't be planning on taking it to a dealer.
Would greatly appreciate some insight into these vehicles, reliability, and other options I should consider.
