re: Mercedes C220 UPDATE: Sold after 9 years and 1.05 lakh km!
- The maintenance & upkeep on any 15-year old German car will be steep. 1 or 2 major repairs and you'll abandon the car as the repair cost won't make sense (vs its book value). This particular model was known for requiring lots of work (e.g. air-con evaporator every two years without fail).
- Being 15 years old, odds are that it doesn't "drive like a Mercedes" anymore. Cars wear out faster on Indian roads.
- The sole reason to buy an old Mercedes would be for sentimental value or timelessness. I can understand someone buying a W123 or W124 with the intent of restoring it, but not a 15-year old W203.
