c200k 2001
Hi,

I was offered a used c200k 2001 for RM115000.. is this a good offer since it is like 8 year old car ? Does c200k from year 2001 has any major problems and what normally I have to change after such a long time usage card...

I hope the servicing wont cost me a bomb with this car.. by the way, how we know whether this is a facelifted version of not ?

Re: c200k 2001
It seem a good offer bro. I think 2001 model still not yet
facelifted,it started 2003 onward(not so sure).
You can differentiate the facelifted have 3 lines at front grill whereas 4 lines for non-facelifted (provided the owner use the original front grill).

I'm riding non-facelifted model,so far maintenance is quite reasonable.C200K supposed to have easy spare parts & worksyop for repairing/servicing.

Regards

Re: c200k 2001
hi ronan,

i bought my c200k japan spec make 2001/registered msia 2006 mileage 35k only, 1st owner, last year march'08 at $115,000.
it shud be slightly cheaper now perhaps less by $10k, but if u are buying frm a dealer, b prepard to pay $10k abv market.

not sure whether yours is a CKD or CBU but i found CBU to be better quality build inside esp the leather...anyway you can check when you test drive & feel the diff.

important thing to check is as follows:
1. raise the car up - check the undercarriage, esp all the rubber bushings at the front, lower arms, etc..these replacement may cost anywhere between $900 to $1500. if they are defective, you will notice the vibration when going over rough road.

2. check the battery current consumption, if it is above the spec (prof Adi @ Millenium Merz Shah Alam can advise you), then you may have a defective electronic "module", this is either the "memory seat module below driver seat" or "cabin lighting module". it cost me $900 (new) for the former & $850 (used) for the latter....bcoz of the above i had to renew my battery (initially wrongly diagnosed) $500 & spent extra $900 to buy the memory seat module from the potong kereta which turn out to be defective anyway. all these trial & error until i found MYBENZ! you see I now owe my body & soul to MYBENZers bcoz my bros here cures my headache, which is why i am sharing this piece of experience.

servicing wont cost u a bomb, it is the replacement parts, so if you check both above, u can already save a couple of K's.

it is very important that you test drive a few c200k before settling on buying the one you love most, sort of like choosing a wife.....have a few gf but keep the best & most beautiful one only.....& most of all enjoy the DRIVE.


Cheers bro.

bro, can still keep them after marriage ha..??

p/s: ronan, you have been quiet since your last posting and as mentioned by members, scout around to get the best deal and car.. however i believe that there is aslo some gut feeling involved when buying the car... i.e. 1st impression or love at the 1st sight..

Re: c200k 2001
yeah,,, been checking around for months.. then my wife bought the new honda city pula at the end.. now this one is for myself to replace my perdana.. hahaha.. but not in hurry for this since I can enjoy the new city first at the moment..

but if the price is okay, i dont mind to trade in my old car for this.. year 2001 car is not so expensive now but I am just wondering whether it gives me problem later.. u know, it is about 9 year old car that cost more than 100k.. after I finish serving my loan for this babe, it can be antique already.. hahaha

oh yeah, after i read most of the post in mybenz, the fc for this red engine is about 9km/litre,,. is that so ??

one important question to ask,, since i know nuts about car, can i get some pro to test for me or something ?? if i test myself, sure kena con .. haha,.., i dun think they will allow me to bring to the workshop to check though,, i have asked 2 dealers before and they said, NO... =(

oh yeah, where can i get the cheap and good condition c200k crytal headlight ? I found one and he is selling me about rm800.. any place to recommend ?? or can go kedai potong to get this as well ??

nice car you have there but I think the rim is too big for me.. I am actually looking for the standard version without the merc logo on the grill.. your car is too sporty for me =) thanks for the offer..

oh yeah, I heard malaysia is getting RON95 petrol by September.. can this c200k 2001 use RON95 petrol ? or minimum 97 ?
