    Is Mercedes Benz C220 CDI with 5 previous Owners worth getting?

    I found a Mercedes Benz C220 CDI for 5.5k with 74k mileage with full service history
    however I'll be the 6th owner and curious if this will be worth getting

    I plan to keep this for least 3 years

    you can have my 2015 C250 cheap if you want.

    possible pre reg so maybe 4 owners or a lease car could be a valid reason for it. just judge the car best you can if worried walk away.

    how much mileage has it got and how much you want?

    Manual or auto?

    I had a manual, worst car I ever had, and what is it with MB keeping the handbrake/footbrake system? It stinks!

    I have a c220 05 reg 2.1 diesel automatic 140 k now drives like a dream best car I've had especially for 3500

    why are you writing about previous owners when the age of the vehicle is more important.

    Model changed big time in 2007

    what is the date of first reg?

    Had a 2012 C220 CDI Sport for three years. The ride quality was dreadful. Its 18" wheels looked nice but they shook the car to death and it rattled like a good 'n' after 25K. The wife went through two new front rims with her constant kerb remodelling; made of butter too.

    The Ellegance (think that's the model) has a much better ride and the seats we 10x more comfortable than in the Sport but it looks like it has been styled for a 65+ year old.

    I completely agree about the handbrake system comment too; really stupid! German engineering at it's best.

    The Stop/Start tech was dreadful an'all. Three years of that alone meant I was happy to get shot of it.

    most Mercs are auto so NO need to use their clumsy handbrake system

    The question you need to ask yourself is why has it had 6 owners, probably b/c it has a problem. None of the C classes from that era were much cop but what you want is your personal choice.

    I would go and have a look and give a very thorough going over. The UK MB forum will no doubt point you to the exact problems those models have.

    The last owner had since October and wanted to sell due to getting layed off from work, i would be the 6th owner

    I had a 2012 C220 AMG auto for 3-4 months and hated the damn thing. Gutless with crap satnav, DAB radio with no reception and flaky bluetooth. Add to that the marshmellow handling, i couldn't wait to get shot of it!

    Some years ago, i had a 2.8 litre E Class petrol merc and then i had a 3 litre E Class diesel merc and you couldnt half tell the difference. The petrol was far superior and was a lot faster even though it was slightly smaller engine size.

    I wouldnt buy a diesel merc again if i were back in the market for merc. Especially now with new laws thrashing any diesel owners because of polution.

    no ...

    I wouldn't have a look on anything above 2 owners for what you are paying, if it's a £500 old car I still won't have a look but 3 owners is reasonable.

    run the car through an MOT history site to get any idea of average miles each year and if it was going through without faults.

    £5.5? What year is it? I paid a lot more for my 2011 model - check on Auto trader to see what other similar specs are going for. Most are higher mileage so 74k is pretty good.

    Also check the MOT history gov.uk/che…tus

    how much mileage has it got and how much you want?

    It has 24K miles on it. Looking for around £17950
