Default Should I buy this s55 AMG?

Hi, everyone.

I'm seriously entertaining pulling the trigger on this one:

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto/6030550373.html


I've currently got a 2000 E320 wagon with 150k, that I picked up with 87k (same as the s55) and I've gone through some costly repairs and I'm worried about what the repair schedule might look like over the next 40k with the s55.

If anyone would like to share any insights or provide feedback, I'm all ears and would be grateful!

Thanks!

Jay

Hey Jay - before considering the purchase, get a full PPI report. Although the car may look really clean on the outside, there could be a lot of issues under the hood.

Yes, exactly. Those are not cheap operations and therefore you should edfinitely check in the inside.

Yeah, you should check into it first thing you do before buying. It has 87k so not that much really, but finding a car in good condition is rare and hard nowadays.
