I was just looking at the A Class today, not sure why as I don't really like the shape, but anyway I saw this and the price seems too good to be true. Is it worth looking at :confused:

Seems a little cheap to me, could be it has a CAT C or D attached that the seller isnt telling about.
Nice looking car though the new A class, I also liked the C you put up for sale.

It never occurred to me that it could be a CAT C or D :(

We still love our C Class, but are trying to be sensible about selling it. Right now we have 2 cars that I find hard to drive and it really isn't fair :twisted:

We had a call from a guy today about our C Class so we will see how that goes :D

Well I was right to be suspicious about the price of the car, when I emailed it turns out the car is in Switzerland. On Autotrader it came up as 6 miles from me, so unless Switzerland has moved overnight, there is some mistake there :confused:

They want shipping costs on top of the price of the car, not sure what that would cost. Trouble is I wouldn't be happy buying a car that I haven't seen.

Only other car I found that was a good price was a CAT D :(

It will be a scam Lyn, they are all over the net at the moment.
Why would someone advertise a car at 30% 40% or even 50% less than the guide price, because the car doesn't exist, or ot os a clone.
You are supposed to pay for it up front and you never get the car.....and your cash is gone....long gone

Lyn,

You might want to remove the link for Autotrader, I presume that's your postcode showing

I'm not really sure exactly what I am looking for to be honest. In fact I'm not even sure I actually need a car, it would just be nice to have a small car that has 4 seats and is easy to drive :D

I'm not too up on the A Class, maybe someone can give me an idea which model would be a good one to buy?

We have someone coming tomorrow to look at the Merc, least they say they are, we will see. I might start another thread for that one ;)

What I love about this forum is how quick people are to respond to any problems you have.

In the years i've been posting here I've never had to bump up a post to get a response.

I wish I could say the same for the Porsche forum :(

We have some condensation on the passenger window, just a tiny bit where the window meets the seal. We thought it was from washing and waterproofing the hood, but obviously not as it went away and has come back. I assume a Porsche is totally different to a Mercedes with regards to that kind of problem or is there a universal solution :confused:

Sadly when one goes down market one has to put up with such failures:cool:

I've been racking my tiny brain to remember what the scam was about. Did the vendor say how they wanted payment?

Read this

It's not the exact scam I had in mind but similar :shock:
