Hi mp_prakash1980,

Looking at the photos, the interior and exterior of S280 looks immaculate. However, for a car that is already eleven years old, it is advisable to have the car thoroughly checked by a good mechanic (computer diagnosis). You never know what you will be spending on after you have purchased the car.

In addition, you have to check with PUSPAKOM/JPJ to make sure the car is clean and not chopped. Its better to be extra cautious before making the final decision.

To know more about the car, please check out http://www.ciao.co.uk/Mercedes-S280-Review-5838607

Here's more...

1. Be patient. Don't grab the first good car you see. These cars will always be available and often at a decent prices.
2. View and test drive as many cars as possible. You will see various conditions and pricings.
3. Always get the VIN number. Thru this you will be able to know exactly where the car is from, what specs it has and what Year of Manufacture it really is. I came across a number of cars which does not tally with what was advertised.
4. Make sure the engine startup smoothly and idles w/o any vibration, cold start it should hover around 1500rpm and after 30seconds or so dropped below 1000 rpm.
5. Check for oil leak on steering box, gearbox, differential and engine head gasket. Check also for coolant leak.
6. Make sure the a/c starts blowing frigid air once started on AUTO. The automatic climate control should be able to keep the cabin at 19C even during hot weather.
7. Make sure the coolant temp maintains at 80C when driving.
8. Look at the coolant reservoir make sure coolant is clear and not murky. Remove the oil filler cap and make sure no sludge on it.
9. When you have narrowed down the cars you really want to buy, take it to a GOOD Mechanic and have it thoroughly checked out with a computer diagnosis. This is where you get all the hidden defects surfacing. You will have to pay a fee to get it done but it can save you from making a serious mistake. Do this BEFORE agreeing on a price. This way you know how much you must budget to make repairs and use the repair estimate to your advantage in your negotiations. Get your mechanic to look through the undercarriage for signs of accidents and take note of wear and tear items on the suspension that may need to be changed. During test drive check oil pressure (should be at 3bar), feel the shifting quality of the gb, paying attention for clunking sound coming from all directions including the long shaft.
10. Rest of the stuff to check is pretty cosmetics like windows, door lock, side mirrors adjust, test ABS function, folding action of side mirror, remote opening of trunk, trunk lid lever operational or not, adjustable front beam, signals, cruise controls, adjustable seat and headrest, wiper sensor .

Hi,

In addition to the comprehensive list bro Mabel has provided, may I add my 2 cents worth:

1. From what little I know, the biggest bane with this model is the replacement cost of the airmatic suspension which may cost RM6k per piece. I believe recond ones are going for RM2k per piece.

2. Since this model is loaded with electronic goodies, please ensure all functions are working well. I believe replacements could be costly too.

All the best.

regards...
