Advice for buyers

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

Warranty Direct quotes impressive reliability figures on this generation of C-Class, well above the average. However, repair bills can be steep if it does go wrong, and Warranty Direct quotes an average repair cost of around £450. The cars may be cheap to buy, but parts and labour can be expensive.

The suspension is the source of most of the C-Class's few problems. But, when conducting the normal checks, bear in mind that the bushes in the anti-roll bars and steering joints can wear, causing a knocking sound when the steering wheel is turned. Don't worry, this isn't serious and won't cost much to fix.
