Q: Is a 2003 Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor a good idea to buy for 8k? The car only has 39k miles on it

asked by on

I'm interested in purchasing a 2003 Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor for business use. It has only 39k miles on it. I was wondering if this is a good investment, please help.

My car has 39100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. To be honest, $8,000 for a 2003 Kompressor with less than 40,000 miles is a steal of a deal. However, that also raises some serious questions as to whether the vehicle has been in an accident, or had mechanical damage; such as a previously blown head gasket. Before you purchase the vehicle, I would highly recommend having a professional mobile mechanic come to the location of the vehicle and complete a pre-purchase car inspection. This will allow them to inspect the vehicle to determine if there are any mechanical issues that would lead to excessive repairs.

It sound like you are losing fuel pressure but you should have the pressure tested and the computer tested for any stored codes. If codes are stored then have the codes diagnosed as needed.
