For those on a budget, buying a second car or perhaps a car for travel to and from work, a second hand Mercedes offers style, comfort and reliability. These vehicles are a great investment and, as they are used, they are available at a significant price reduction as compared to a new model.
Buying a used Mercedes is not that much different than buying any type of luxury vehicle. There are some important factors to check with the vehicle and there are also some very serious mistakes to avoid. By taking your time, buying from a Mercedes dealer and comparing your options, you will find the right car for your needs.
Purchase from a Dealer
Ideally, if you are buying a second hand Mercedes, always buy from a dealership. This is important for your protection as the dealer will make sure that pre-owned vehicles are inspected and tested before they are sold. In addition, through purchasing a pre-owned Mercedes from the dealer, you also have the added benefit of the dealership name and reputation.
When shopping for the vehicle on the pre-owned lot, you have the ability to try out several different makes and models. If you buy from a used car dealer or another dealership that is not a Mercedes dealer you will have only a limited number of vehicles to choose from.
Buying from a private individual is the riskiest possible purchase. There is no warranty and it may not be possible to have your mechanic inspect the vehicle. This could result in bringing home a car that looks well-maintained only to find out there are significant and costly mechanical issues.
Take Your Time
Regardless of the dealership you choose, it is important not to make an emotional decision in the purchase of the vehicle. Take your time and compare the various models on the lot. Remember, if you don’t find the vehicle you want in your price range, there will be more used cars brought into inventory on an ongoing basis.
It is a good idea to make a list of the features you know that you want in your new second hand Mercedes. This list will help you to stay focused on the important features and not make a snap choice based on how appealing you find a particular vehicle even if it may not be the one most suited to your needs.
