Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Mercedes C-Class estate?

The C-Class has performed well to date, and owners are impressed with the quality and durability of the car. However, some issues have arisen.

Early cars suffered an automatic gearbox issue, with long hesitations during gearchanges. This should have been fixed with a software update, which any franchised dealer could carry out. Check that it has been done.
