Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Mercedes CLS coupe?

All models come with parking sensors and a rear-view camera to aid with parking, but still check for any external damage to the bumpers and bodywork. Also, make sure there aren’t any large chunks missing or nasty graze marks on the alloy wheels, since repairs can quickly become expensive.

There are some light interior colours available in the CLS that may show marks and dirt quite easily, so make sure there are no stains on the carpets and seats.
