313 lwb 2014
Hi all,

Please share advice..
I am looking to buy a 313 lwb 2014, with 220k miles on.
Is this wise?
I will be an owner driver courier, just starting out. And concerned about the mileage causing problems.
I know these vehicles are capable of 500k.

Any advice please?

Mercedes Cl500, shitron dispatch
if its been well serviced and is priced accordingly , why not ? very capable machines , id be mindfull of any strange noises , such as diff whine and gearbox being notchy , couriers aren't the most sympathetic drivers usually

Hello and welcome

If it’s spent it’s life up and down the motorway then no issues at all.
If however it was used for multi-drop deliveries around town then clutch, brakes, steering and suspension could be very worn indeed.

Advice as above but do take your time in finding the right vehicle, service history and usage is everything with high mileage vehicles
