Thinking about purchasing one for $2000.00 Do you know the quality of the car for that year
Wow....what a buy...what does the interior look like? Is it a diesel? there are two areas of concern when I buy a car....what does the interior smell like? and what does the exhaust smell like? Check underhood for evidence of a prior overheat...then take a look at the coolant color and level...the crankcase oil smell and color...the transmission fluid color and level...if you've a mechanic buddy get a compression check done comparative analysis of each cylinder....get a smog check...have them put the car on a dynamometer to check the performance of the engine and smog devices~
I could check for recalls if you'd give us the year in question~
Can you check for a recall? Its a 1995 s420
there is a lighting recall on this model~ http://www.intellichoice.com/1-12-1995-100013078-20/1995-mercedes- benz-s420-4dr-sedan-recalls.html
The w126 is a fabulous car IF it's been maintained. The price of admission is nothing as you can easily drop that at your first service. I HIGHLY recommend taking any used car to a dealer before you sign the papers and pay them $250 for a pre-purchase inspection. at least then you'll know what the car needs now.
