Hi all, can you have a look at this car and tell me if its worth changing my 2005 C220 CDI Sport, 36k miles
I'm sure its fine but, why do you want to change?
Its a year older and 36,000 miles more than what you have. Yes its bigger and IMO a far nicer car than what you have but the spec is pretty basic - no phone, command, memory pack etc so it's nothing unusual. Running costs will be a lot higher which you need to take into account.
No reason to say avoid though so if your heart is set, and the deal appears competitive, why not?
The E class is MUCH more car IMO and as to running costs my C220 used to get 40mpg if I was fairly careful. I've just done nearly 500 miles this weekend up to York, across to Liverpool and back home. Mostly motorway and mostly conducted at a genuine 80mph on cruise on fairly free flowing roads. Add a bit of town driving and some bimbling around Warwickshire today (OK and an occasional "get off my effing tail you tw*t" kickdown to the boy-racers in Saxo's leaving them for dead with 204bhp and 500Nm torque) and she's showing 42.1mpg. I am expecting to better my C class MPG on my fast commute to work.
