Re: What need to check when to buy C200
Definitely need to get a mechanic to check.

1. Most important, check that the car has not been in any major accidents, most mechanics will look at the window seals, boot floor, engine mounts and support to look out for structural deformation. If there is any sign of major accident, walk away. I get very suspicious if the car has been recently repainted.

2. Check the wiring harness. Even if it looks okay, unless it has been changed recently set aside RM2,500 as insurance for your self as you will eventually have to change the wiring harness. Otherwise if it fails you'll be looking at a > RM10K repair bill if the wires and ecu shorts

3. Check the smoothness of the gearbox, if you hear a 'thunk' shifting from N -> D then bushings need attention.

4. Check steering freeplay. too loose then it's bushings again.

5. check all switches. windows, mirrors, lights etc

6. Make sure you get 2 key remotes, if it is the original Merc keys they cost over 1K to replace.

7. Check the A/C system. the C200 A/C controller is notorious for problems.

8. Check that all the guage dials work.

You could arrange to meet up at City & Cycle in Puchong. Ah-Tee is usually very obliging to Mybenz members and will look over the potential purchase for free. He's a very good friendly guy.

Re: What need to check when to buy C200
I'm using a 4 speed. Technically 5 speed is better.
Generally the C200 is a very economical car, on average getting (4 speed) RM0.24/km vs RM0.32/km for my W124 230E.
Not sure when the 5 speed was introduced, however the last incarnation has the "Steptronic" feature which allows you to shift the gears up and down manuall.

Re: What need to check when to buy C200
uncle c9... price memang ada naik sikit selepas pengumuman rebet minyak...

bro langerek... please introduce yourself sikit... &please edit your profile... tq...

beli 5speed... better... smoother... quieter... kalau boleh elakkan gearbox 722.5...
economical? nak bandingkan dengan kereta apa? kancil?
if the car is ok &kaki bro ok boleh dapat 11-12km/l city driving...
speed? acceleration & top speed?
apa yang bro harapkan? top speed tak pernah test tapi pernah sampai 220kmh... kalau nak w202 yang laju beli c230k/c280k/c36/c43... kalau tak, beli kereta lain...
maintenence is ok ok... so far mine no major problem... problematic if the car born to be problematic

i tambah sikit ape yang belum disebut...

1) first... check vin number...
2) wiper... on lama sikit... takut gigi die dah rosak... can save rm500-1k... cuba pancut air sekali...
3) tengok steering rack... can save about rm350...
4) tengok tank minyak... maklumlah kereta dah 10tahun dan ke atas...
5) tengok ekzos dari depan sampai belakang
6) kalau boleh jirus air kat semua cermin... cermin depan belakang... tengok bocor... kalau jirus satu body pun ok... lepastu basuh kereta terus...
7) test drive... rasa absorber &spring masih ok tak... testdrive tutup tingkap... check bunyi angin &bunyi luar... lepastu test drive bukak tingkap... check bunyi2 seperti bearing, axle, coupling etc...
8) test drive... check brek (brekpad&brekdisc)... cek sekali footbrek...
9) check 4digit nombor tayar... kadang2 nampak je tayar cantik...
10) check tempat bukak minyak boleh bukak ke tak &check cap minyak... check semua cap, radiator cap, cap minyak hitam... dll...
11) check bateri...
12) pastikan seatbelt belakang ada 3pasang...
13) on radio... &check speaker sekali...
14) check interior - carpet, steering, seat
15) check side mirror... main2 suiz die... check power window... main2 suiz die...
16) suruh mekanik yang dipercayai check...

terbanyak lak i taip...

Re: What need to check when to buy C200
caya la mongkut.

nk share same experience:
1st mmg x tau nak amik apa..w203 or 202.
join club ni, kenal benzers, get opinion, kena TT skali.
bwk keta proton park pun jauh2..malu beb.
survey byk used car, naza, cycle crrge.
at last jumpa kat sunday market. still ask opinion
from ex-cycle crrge pegi inspect, test drive.
puas ati baru sign surat branak...

p/s: better ask trusted mechanic dr pandai2 check sendri.
yg simple2 tu chk sendri la..mcm suis, lampu, signal,etc.
yg major2 bg la yg expert chk.
