Renew COE for Mercedes C180 worth it?

Hi all,

Just wanted to seek advice especially from mercedes drivers who renewed the COE for B, C class.

As a Toyota allion owner, is the reliability for a older B or C180 comparable and how much more expensive are the parts for repair and replacement?

Thanks all for the advice!

Is voice down to the maintenance of the car by previous owner. Is always a luck thingy. Personally, unless you knew the previous owners, i would not take on any coe ride.
One of the common failure of B class is the steering rack. Last heard from my trusted workshop, even newer B class do have same problem with the steering rack problem.
You can try ask your trusted workshop.

don't bet on a 10-year-old of any European makes these days in 2020. If it turned out to good, consider yourself lucky. If it became a money pit, it's normal.

frankly speaking, i would choose that hyundai, of course not boosting the face value as much as the eurpoean brands.

Well.. They're doing so-called reverse engineering now.
Hopefully they'll improve from the original

But to stay on topic, buying renewed C180 is about same price as E200 or so..so might as well

If you are looking for a daily driver, then probably no.

I guess among the major European brands, the three point star is relatively better than BMW or Audi. Wear and tear will be given. It is a case of how much are the spares and how frequently you want to go to WS.

Mercedes of today and that of about 30-35 years ago are miles apart. Those days most Mercedes are bulletproof. Their gearbox were made to last a lifetime with proper maintenance.

renewed C180 should be quite safe to get. only concern is when parts start to fail and requires replacement, it will be expensive.

Had thought about the C180, but ended up with a lexus IS250. drive feel is so much better, and i believe parts replacement will be cheaper than C180.

Could less cheaper since a Jap brand, co share parts with those Toyota model. But significant difference in road tax.

Yeah! Roadtax for is250 is a killer. But after driving it for a week, the quietness and comfort of the car is totally worth it. Sometimes I do not on any music, just to hear the sound of the V6 engine..
