Have pre-purchase inspection. Look for oil leaks, ticking and knocking noises. Look for rust. Look at date code on tires. And so on. Car should be as close to "needs nothing" condition as possible.
Nice clean car. If mechanicals have been maintained as well as the cosmetics, I'd go for it. Budget $1k to $2k for routine maintenance, i.e. fluid changes, filters, brake wear, window regulators, running gear. Good luck and let us know what you decide! These are great, reliable cars.Hello Merc fellows,

I know that it depends on the maintenance history, but what is your opinion regardless of that. I want to buy it for an everyday use and not driving for long distance. I am in Sweden and this is the link for the car:
