Hi everyone. About to buy a 2006 c230 with 63,000 miles from a benz dealership and any thoughts, ideas, complaints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Anything I should now about the car such as common problems or issues I should check out before pruchase? I own a 1998 ML320 and love it with very few problems. Thanks.

2006 has the M272 V6 engine which is prone to the dreaded "b balance shaft" timing gear failure. I'd check to see if that was repaired. If not, you might want to make sure you have a warranty because the fix is over $4K (requires pulling the engine).
