What should I look for in a used Mercedes C-Class saloon?
Unusually for a modern car, the Mercedes C-Class can suffer from rust, most commonly around the edge of the boot lid, close to the boot release handle.
The door mirrors can also be problematic, with noisy folding and adjusting motors and the integral indicator repeaters falling out of sync with the main units. They’re expensive to replace (as much as £500 each) so check them carefully.
