Are used Mercedes Benz reliable?

Are used Mercedes Benz reliable?

The Mercedes-Benz brand is a highly reputable and technologically advanced automaker that produces elegant, comfortable vehicles. But, are used Mercedes Benz reliable vehicles? The response to this question is relatively simple: Mercedes cars that have been properly maintained are reliable. 

 

More than their age, Mercedes Benz's reliability depends on their condition. There are some Mercedes vehicles that may experience minor issues as early as 50,000 miles, while other Mercedes may last up to 200,000 miles with no problems. 

 

Annual Repair Cost

According to statistics, the average cost of ownership directly correlates with reliability and repair costs. Essentially, the more reliable your vehicle is, the lower its own cost will be. In contrast, a poorly-maintained vehicle will require more expensive repairs, which will raise the ownership costs. 

 

According to Mercedes-Benz, the average annual repair cost of their cars is $908, which includes scheduled maintenance and unexpected repairs. For a luxury car, this places the Mercedes-Benz's ownership cost at a moderate level as well.

 

Do Your Research

 

Mercedes cars are on the whole pretty durable; however, owning a used Mercedes can quickly turn into a money pit headache. You must do thorough research, understand your needs and choose a model that fits your needs.

If everything appears to be in order, go ahead and choose a vehicle, order a vehicle history report and arrange for a pre-purchase inspection. Inspection companies or mechanics can provide you with a comprehensive report that details problems and repairs that need to be performed, along with signs of damage, accidents and more, as well as a rough estimate for the repairs. 

 

When you have the report, you can assess the deal. This will give you leverage when it comes time to negotiate the price. Then, if the report is clear and the inspection confirms that the car is fine with only minor issues, you can go for it.
