Ownership cost

What used Mercedes C-Class saloon will I get for my budget?

Early examples of this Mercedes C-Class are now old enough to have fallen to 'banger' status and can be snapped up for less than £1000. A risky choice from a reliability point of view, but with potential for low-cost luxury if you can find a good one.

About £5000 will get you a much more sensible 2004-2005 C220 CDI automatic with full history and the desirable automatic gearbox, while a good late-model C350 CDI V6 diesel will set you back about £8000.
