I bought a 2001 c240 with 12k miles on in December 2007, have about 35k miles on it now. The only issues I have had are rubber parts failing - it has been an Arizona car it's whole life. I've had to replace the hydraulic front suspension bushings and the hydraulic engine mounts because the rubber on them cracked. Other than that, it has been great.
