Hi Shane, Thank you for your prompt and informative reply,only for your expert advice i could have walked myself into very expensive trouble. regarding the purchase of a used C-class Merc. 2008/2013. i have a budget of 13,000 euro what i"m looking for is petrol/ automatic and not too small bodywise say 1.6 or 1.8 ltrs any sugestions? Thanks again ,hope you will be with carzone for many years regards.
The only issue is that your petrol engine choice is very limited in that price bracket right now. Possibly your best option might be a Toyota Avensis 1.6 Valvematic, which is very refined, ultra-reliable and frugal, but not especially interesting. If you fancy something a bit more ‘premium’ then the only options are to go for a diesel or to try and increase the budget a bit and get into a hybrid Lexus IS 300h.
