Hi thanks for the info.
I am looking at a 2017 cls 220amg line premium and considering the purchase of it but when I check the mot history it states at the last mot advisories. Subframe corrosion but not structuraly unsafe ,that is my only concern apart from that, it is a 1 owner full mb service history 49000 miles motor.
Any thought would be appreciated.
Best regards And thanks.

If it has visible signs then it could be a lot worse for areas you can’t see.
I would give it a miss myself with all the hassle it would take to repair if needed.
 
Unless mercedes offer to do it for free, I'd avoid that car. Shame that a 2017 car should have subframe corrosion!
 
2017 cars shouldn't be affected? It might just be external surface rust - not uncommon. I agree that it's best avoided, though, unless it can be throughly inspected.

I had a Mercedes C207E400 ( 2016 ) that was written off due to subframe failure.Walk away.My car was inspected by a well known specialist and was given an all clear.On my car the frame corroded from the inside out.
