Mercedes = very expensive to repair and maintain. Over 100,000 miles even worse. Also it depends on the price of the car and the depth of your wallet.

Owned many Mercedes.. the only models over 100K are the S class, SL and CL series and they all hold their resale values extremely well.

I think the original poster is asking about a Mercedes C- Class with over 100,000 miles NOT a Mercedes over $100,000.

I personally would avoid a Mercedes unless it was new and with a full warranty.

It's been said many times here before... "there's nothing so expensive as a cheap Mercedes." Like most European vehicles, the basics (engine, transmission, etc...) will most likely last a long time, it's all the OTHER stuff (electrical, A/C, electronic, etc...) that can be frighteningly expensive to maintain. Buy only from whom you know, require documentation of all required maintenance, check CarFax and Auto-Check, have experienced M-B mechanic check the vehicle over.
