    What car are you planning to swap with the C220?

    I used to have a 1995 C220 AT. From my experience, maintenance is comparable to any medium-sized Japanese car (i.e. Accord and Camry) -- in terms of parts availability and price. Yes, price of MB parts are more likely (not all) higher than Japanese but lasts 2-3x longer (if not more, depending if genuine parts and usage). Ergo, you don't fix and MB and sell right after.

    You mentioned on your thread title that you plan to get a 96-97 MY C220. I'd say you're "safe". 1994-95 MY W202s had issues with engine harness but was said to have been resolved '96- . Still, maintenance records would greatly help to determine the car's history.

    Finally, nothing beats bringing a trusted and reputable mechanic to check the car for you. Good luck and keep us posted thru this thread on developments.

    If hindi sagot mo sa dalawa, or " im-a-honda-boy " sagot mo sa una then forget the deal
