Mmm, some pretty unfavourable remarks about the C-Class reliability, which is a little ( lot ) disappointing. Looking for a new to me car, lowish mileage and 3 to 4 years old and had settled on the C-Class estate, on paper everything I need. Unfortunately it isn't a company car ( retired ) so reliability, servicing costs etc. are important as they will be self funded. I always thought Mercs were reliable after reading of 120K+ miles without a problem many times.
Should it be back to the drawing board or continue as planned ? My old very uninspiring Toyota Avensis estate has never missed a beat and passed all MOT's without advisories or any breakdown or failure. Bloody descisions, the Merc looks good, feels good but that's no good if the garage sees it more than me. Any suggestions ?
