Quality vehicle that ticks most of the boxes.
Added: 11th of October 2016
I purchased a used C class AMG line diesel a year ago. I have found it to be both reliable and economical, meeting all my expectations of the brand. It has achieved 56 mpg overall so far and is a joy to drive. Vehicle Excise Duty is only £30 and fully comprehensive insurance in the region of £200 pa. My only criticisms would be the ride is a little hard largely due to the 18 inch run flat tyres combined with the multitude of pot holes in today's roads, and the cockpit type design means larger framed people are a tight fit in the seats. I guess the E class would be better suited to them. On the whole a very refined car that is ideal for long journeys that won't break the bank. Purchase price direct from Daimler Benz, at 18 months old, was £26K with two years free servicing. No repairs or faults to date.
