    Hello.

    I had a 1995 C220 before... and it has the same engine as a E220 (M111). Maintenance is reasonable.... like maintaining a Japanese 2.0L. Consumption should be around 7-8 kms/liter average (depending on driving habit, vehicle condition, road condition, etc)

    Check the engine harness, body (for rusts), maintenance record/receipts (if available). By again, it's best to bring a trusted mechanic when you check a vehicle you're interested.

    Good luck!

    Since it's a 124, parts are relatively abundant,both brand new and surplus. Brand new maintenance parts are available for purchase. Should you eventually need some (surplus), let me know. I may be able to help you out. Just send me a PM.

    the M111 engine in the E220 is a balance between power and fuel consumption. Basic maintenance like Bob mentioned is Jap like and pretty much a DIY thing. Check for smooth idle (quiet and with no vibration, heck its a Merc it shoudn't have one) and dips when turning on the A/C. Parts are abundant, both new, surplus and from club members, mbclub.ph, who sells at a much cheaper price.

    It you have more questions kay Benzmiser mo itanung hahahahahahahaha!!! Just kidding.
