Thanks for the information. I ran a car fax report and learned the mileage was correct but it failed two NYC emissions inspections, one in í98 and the other in í99. It looks like it was corrected in í99 at 107,000 miles, which would be about 23k miles ago. After I posted this I got the name of a mechanic who works at an MB dealership and he was good enough to run a full report on the VIN. Iím going to meet with him tonight and go over it. Iím suppose to pick up the car this Saturday but before I do, Iíve arranged for Lemon Busters (anyone use these folks?) to do a full systems check. If it passes with minimum problems, Iíll buy it.

Thanks again.
