Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Mercedes M Class 4x4?
This is a large car that will have been used in tight urban spaces, so it’s worth looking at the extremities of the car to find any scuffs or dents picked up in car parks and on school runs. Also check the alloy wheels for any kerb damage. Take a look at the underneath of the car for any signs of off-road damage and look on the front of the car for any stone chips.
Check all the electrical equipment carefully, too, because there is a lot of it and repair is expensive. This includes the sat-nav, the electric seats, the rear tailgate and any optional electrical items that may have been specified when the car was new.
