I'm buying a car in the next few weeks, looking for something in the '00-'05 range and the 8-10k range, but for work I want something a little more upscale than a Kia or a Hyundai. Been looking at A4's, 3-series' and the like, but it's hard to find anything with less than 70k miles or so. Plus I'm concerned about parts and maintenance on a car like that with that many miles. That's why I'm really worried about finding this: 2002 Mercedes C230, 47k miles, $8998.00 Haven't looked at it yet, but provided there's nothing hugely wrong with it, I've been considering it. Found 3 other black ones locally in the same price range with a few more miles as well, so I can pick the best of the 4 if need be. Maintenance and insurance concern me, since I've never owned one I don't know what to expect. Plus the fact that the interior is ugly and the rear end looks like a Neon. On the other hand it's a good entry level luxury car that won't embarrass me when I take customers/coworkers around. Pros/cons/suggestions?
