Mercedes-Benz C Class 2.7 C270 CDI Avantgarde SE 4dr *EXCELLENT MECHANICALLY*
A reluctant sale of this excellent example of Mercedes C-Class. This model is regarded as the jewel of the C-class family. One of the most durable and reliable versions to date. It features a bullet-proof 2.7ltr diesel engine and a sealed for life 5G-tronic auto transmission. Despite its age it still offers the luxury and comfort of a true Mercedes-Benz and being the Avantgarde line you get a few extra perks. I have owned the vehicle for 2 years and have used it as my weekly commuter between Cornwall and London. The Mercedes was purchased from a main dealer in Birmingham and is HPI clear.

Now, let me give you a clear overview of the vehicle:
ENGINE / TRANSMISSION / SUSPENSION / MOTs
1) Vehicle has been serviced every year from 2005 with only two gaps in 2009 and 2015.
Last service in 2016 included: air filter, spark plugs, oil change and flush, oil filter, fuel filter, pollen filter.
2) The suspension has been fully renewed at a Mercedes specialist. Parts replaced as follows:
*Front & rear drop links
*Rear coil springs and Kayaba front / rear shock absorbers
*OEM front upper control arms
*L/H wheel bearing
*Front torsion strut bushes
*Full 4-wheel laser alingment
Total cost of repairs: £988.00
3) The transmission has been considered by Mercedes back in 2003 as 'sealed for life', however due to the age of the car I felt that it was appropriate to service it this year - the car drives like new, super smooth, accelaration, shifting and MPG dramatically improved. The work done in late March 2017 as follows:
*New OEM Electronical Conductor Plate kit
*New Transmission filter
*Full oil replacement and gearbox flush
*New transmission plug and gasket
*Star diagnostic - transmission reset - this re-enables synchronisation where transmission learns from new
Total cost of repairs: £494.35
The car comes with 10 months MOT. It has just been fitted with 4 new tyres.
*The body is in a very good condition considering its age, usual wear and tear, the usual door corner scratches from parking. It is a 14 yo car which has seen a lot of motorway driving, so do not expect a body/paint of a brand new car.
*Alloy wheels - 16inch standard alloy wheels (pre-facelift) - in an okay condition, but corroded and kerbed
*Grey Leather, carpet, silver plastic trims
*Front seat belts (light gray) have been deep cleaned - no greasy stains or dark marks
*Brand new tailored Mercedes C-Class black mats just fitted
*Minor marks and scratches on: plastic door handles, steering wheel. Again nothing unusual for a 14yo car.
