I own an 18 year old 200k which I don't use much and like to keep on trickle charge in a barn in the Winter. Rather than remove the A/C filter and battery cover I normally apply the charger crock clips to a decent ground and the positive to the 'jump start' terminal inside the red flip top...
I had this car for almost 30000 miles. Very looked after it. A lot of suspension arms replaced. Track rods. The gearbox had oil changed. Fuel filters were changed every 5000 miles. The engine runs like a clock. Ignition sparks were replaced. The aux belt was replaced. The car has a rear view...

I'm looking for a bit of advice if possible from the knowledgable folks on this form :)
I have a couple of issues on my CLK, possibly related.
1. When the car is cold and you put it in drive or reverse, there is a bit of extra 'tug' and judder when held on the brake. This...
Newbie on this forum here.
I have a 2008 C-Class 200k (1.8 kompressor). The engine management light recently came on and the car is now underpowered and struggles to go above 60 on the motorway.
I took it to my local dealer and they found the fault codes:3539 - the boost...
Always amazes me these high mileage young cars
Would love to know who buys them and what problems / things they need to replace over the next 3/4 years once into "normal" 10k miles per year ownership.

Hi thanks for taking the time to read and reply to this thread.
I have a Mercered CLK 200k Avantgarde Silver with 74k Miles on the clock and full service history.
I have also fitted a Full Amg styling kit like the sport models have.
Now its time to sell it and move on but how much is it...
Just got a 200k after owning a w124. Pretty much clean car. 100k with FSH.
I've only put up a few 100 miles but is great to drive and has a nice bit of power.
Looking forward to good advice etc.
I'm in Dublin ROI, so any other Irish here?
200k miles, red velour interior. One handsome automobile and the spec of choice for Count Dracula with that colour combo. A fitting tribute purchase for the late Christopher Lee, I think.
The ad says "no reserve" but you'll...
As a non-Mercedes person I'm here to get some valuable advice for my next purchase. Been driving Hondas and VW all my previous life, so not a lot of knowledge about MBs.
At the moment I'm looking for a car for wife (main role as 2nd car), so I'm not considering diesels as car...
I'm looking at purchasing an e220 at the moment you can pick up a few bargain facelift models with over 200k on the clock. However I'm very skeptical of high mileage cars although ive never owned one. Does anyone have any experience with high mileage E220's? what should I look out for? What are...
Hi Guys- looking for some buying advice if possible. been tempted with an 06 plate cls320cdi with nearly 200k on the clock- yeah 200k. so you know the question- is it worth the risk ?
does anyone have a cls or any merc with that kind of mileage on the go.
I already have a b class as a...
I was going to take a look at swapping out my thermostat because I can do 25 miles and the heater never gets hot and the display never goes above 40.
Has anyone seen a fault like this?
Is it normal for CLK 2006 200K to be so slow to get hot?
When I change it, is there anything to look out...
Hope the enclosed service sheet is of interest to some of you! After lots of research this seems to be the simplest. The only query is the Auto Box Fluid change as MB seem confused. It would appear to be sensible and do a partial change at 50K mls. with a new filter and electronic...
