    Default Help Please - Used Mercedes Benz Buying Guide

    Aoa,
    I'm looking for a (W203) C-Class 2003-2006 C220 Cdi (diesel) these days here in England, so I would request some experts to please guide me on what to look for in these cars and any special things I need to check out although I'm looking for ones with full service history and a mileage of around a maximum of 75-80k miles. Any tips and help me will be really helpful.

    Thank you

    Regards

    Well, on Auto-trader, you can always pay a bit i think approx 5-20 quid and get service history of the car.
    Always buy a car with genuine service history. That really helps!
    Wish you the best of luck, do update us
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    Thanks for your reply. Yes autotrader does give that option but I'm looking for any advice and tips on things to look out for other than what the service history tells. Things to check while physically inspecting the car maybe.

    make sure the car does not have any active errors
    make sure the car tracks straight and has no noises.
    doesnt look ham fisted paint finish
    no missing trims inside and out

    put it on a rack to insect the undercarriage for worn parts rust.

    Thats really helpful of you Xulfiqar bhai, thank you so much. Regarding the gearbox and the general engine condition I hope the service history gives enough information.
