Hai guys,

I need your help and expertise. My dad just retired and he want to enjoy his retirement days. He want to buy a car but couldn't afford more than 100k value of car. So i said to him to search a secondhand car and go for luxury car like mercedes benz so that he will get the comfort and luxury of continental car. I did my search via mudah.com and try to find one within my father budget. They have a few but my father concern about the hidden faulty of the car.

So I want to ask you guys to help me. I want to know what is the important thing that i need to check or examinate before buy a second hand car.

If you want to sell your car or got a friend who want to sell their car please don't hesistate to post in here so that i can share it with my father.

Thanks in advance.

hi, firstly... welcome to the club infinity2eterni... hope will enjoy in this forum...

if you want to buy a used car, you have to know your budget. then you have to make a choice what type, model and specification of the said thing. make sure the car is not a 'kereta potong'... chasis and engine number still in good condition and synchronise with registration card. then make it sure that the systems in full of function. like wiring... sun roof... vacuum... etc... (if the car got that system). if all in good condition and you satisfied, you have to do a small inspection with the car. like scratches... dents... worn... etc... don't forget to test drive and last but not least... make sure that car got a spare tire and a lift jack...

my 2 cents...

bro,
put a little more and get a W204 C200 K about RM105K and you will enjoy it.
Maintenance, insurance & road tax should not be problem.
Go shop around and select a good unit,
Drive to me for a Free check up & diagnostic & original mileage check as well as fraud check.

My father budget is below 100k. From my searching in mudah w211 fit the price. But how we know if the car is not "kereta potong"? And what is the common problem with this model w211?

I need this information so that we know how much money we need to fork out for maintainance later.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your info. But im afraid we can't manage to take care since its new. Especially to find part for repair. I don't know but mybe you can share with me the pros and cons of w204 vs w211. Its for my father and he is retired so can't keep up with expensive service or repair. But we want a comfortable and luxury for him to enjoy luxury car.

Thanks.

bro,
there is no pro & cons in W204 & W211
W204 is C-Class Chassis & W211 is E-Class Chassis and the price different for New C-Class & New E-Class different is RM110K or more.

Buying a Mercedes Benz whether is old or new car is not much of a problem,
Maintaining it is the challenging factor.
Only strong Benzer can maintain their Mercedes Benz.

Of cause continental cars maintenance and parts or equipment are more expensive than others, but then they are stronger & lasting quality.

At RM100K & below you can only buy year 2003 or 2004 W211.
But than you have to prepare some monies for the lifespan wear & tear parts which are quiet costly.

My average maintenance fees for my W211 E200K is about RM2500.00 per year.
So far touch wood, its perfect and next to new car performance because I only use original parts.

Thanks for your sharing info.

Now I'm clear what we need to prepare for this type maintenance.

Do you have any experience with vw cars? My friend suggest to look for vw passat b6 model which fall in my father budget. They said vw car is almost similar bmw and benz in comfort and luxury. Is it true? Since vw is a germany car like benz n bmw.

Thanks in advance.

If your father is looking for prestige.. personally Mercedes is a better choice over VW.

What I mean is that.. if u drive VW, u may still envy the Mercedes that u just overtake. But if u bought Mercedes, u don't bother car maker that u just overtake.. whether VW..BMW..

But for AUDI..hemmmm.. I don't know..I guess they are overrated hahaha. I heard they have better performance...latest tech but with similar price range with Mercedes..(personally.. AUDI cockpit turns me off) hehe

The first thing one need to do when buying 2nd hand car is that.... THEY ARE 2ND HAND.

Don't and NEVER expect it will be repair free after u take it home. If one cannot set their mind like this... I would strongly suggest you go for a brand new car..or used but almost new car. (no headache or much lesser headache)

Its diffciult to check the 2nd hand car for a hidden and not obvious faulty/problem. Even if u bring ur mech and check the car, it may still have problem which only thorough and deep checking will find.
s
However, u can miminize the risk by...:-

1) Test the car as many as possible..maybe 4 or 5 cars of same model and specs (different manufacture year is okay) to feel their difference.

2) Ask a frend who already has the same specs and model of car to test drive the car and give comment.

3) Bring your trusted mech to inspect the car

4) To know whether the car is not kereta potong is easy but hassle. U have to personally do the puspakom checking...

Happy hunting..

Betul la bro,
Dulu I owned Galant, Audi, VW, BMW & Volvo, nothing can tell until I drove a Mercedes Benz W123.

I could felt those cars I owned earlier were like driving lorry compare to driving my 1st W123 Merz on the road.

Eversince than, I always stick to Mercedes Benz only.
