W204 advice

as the go to guy for Mercedes at work my boss asked me about a C350 she found for sale at the local ford dealership.

As far as I know it is a 2004, with 40k on the clock, fully loaded. She asked me what to look for and etc. I told her I only know pre '93 cars with only the w210 chassis being the newest I kinda know. I told her to at least get a PPI at the Mercedes dealership but will find out more for her

If it's a 2004 it's probably a C320, W203. If it's a 2008 it's a C350, W204. Both are great cars, but if it's a W204 it has some factory warranty remaining. Either way, a Pre-Purchase Inspection is a must!!!

There was a W203 C350 in '06-'07. The engine carried over to the W204.

If the car is indeed a 2004 model, then it is most likely a C320, with the M112 V6 engine.

In general, the W203 is a pretty decent car. The reliability and quality are not up to par with the W204 (or its predecessor, the W202), but they are still nice to drive.

they ended up getting a used E350 from the Mercedes dealership with a star marked warranty on it and like 20k on it for a little more than the C230
