Buying a used 'corporate vehicle' - thoughts?
I've been looking at getting a newer Mercedes and found one that looks like a pretty good deal. It's a 2012 C250 for about $20k with about 38k miles.
The only issue is it was previously used as a corporate vehicle. I'm not really sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing - on the plus side it should have had regular maintenance, but on the flip side it could have been driven like a rental.
I'm not really sure if I should seriously consider buying this vehicle, from the pictures it looks pretty clean but I'm thinking of checking it out in person tomorrow. There is a Mercedes dealership right around the corner so I was wondering what the protocol is to have them send it over for an inspection, (never done that before, but it would make me much more comfortable).
Also, since this is a non-Mercedes dealership is it still possible to buy a Mercedes extended warranty, or would I have to buy from a Mercedes lot for that? I definitely don't want a 3rd party warranty - I already made that mistake once!
