Just go through the usual checks for 2nd hand cars, espically in terms of leakings, rustings, mismatches of colors on the body and engine noise and vibrations.

I think it would be clearer if you can point out which C200 you are referring to.

Like the year made or picture of it.

need to check on usual leak and timing chain replacement if milage is more than 120,000km as it about time .

 

Its strange that need to replace the timing chain. Normally is the timing belt and just the chain tensioner that is required to be look at for other cars.

 

Pretty hardy car.

Better do a major servicing if u decide to buy any pre owned car, not just Merc.

Dealers are commonly adjusting down the odo mileage.

oil leak is common on this model, check on the gearbox, may not have gearbox issue if pervious owners

had done proper regular ATF change.
