    Default Price check - mercedes 2007 c-class

    I just came across couple of mercedes c-class 2007 (new shape) ads for which the owners are asking below 3million. One of them have mentioned the reason for low price as moving abroad so wanted to sell urgent.

    I was just curious still why so low. So it could really be the reason of moving abroad or something fishy with the car?

    I am also looking for a car in the similar range, manual 2007 new shapes are around 32-34 in Isb. Below 30 sounds fishy to me. I would be extra cautious.

    Owners of c class Mercedes just want to get rid of them due to number of reasons. 1, high maintainence, motly people who bought these had in mind that when the new civic costs around 27 why should we buy this, brand tu hai, status symbol n bla bla and later realised its like owning a white elephant. 2, the ride is not comfortable as what they initially thought. 3, rear leg space is very tight, santro is more spacious then it. 4, re-sale is not good due to open availability and choice. 5 the ignition switch, it often gets messed up and costs a big one to replace. Just to name a few

    Brother market is of around 3.0M with M/T benz are always slow seller.

    Elegance models and that too made in Germany can touch 4.0M.

    Thanks for the info. I am too thinking to go after brand and then again think why not to wait for new corolla ... but i believe space, comfort is something i can ignore on as my personal car is mostly parked. Hardly driven 20-15kms per week now.

    The ignition problem you mentioned is with the same model? Coz any electronic panga in these cars i know is a big mess.
