How many miles should I expect to get out of my car?I

(2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK500)
in Cape Coral, FL on November 14, 2010
I have fallen in love with a 2003 CLK 500, but it has 112K miles on it and I am afraid! It has been serviced and maintained by the dealership and has had only one owner who must have LOVED this car because it is in prestine condition. Should I be afraid of the high mileage? How many miles should I expect to get from this car?

112k is not a lot of mileage for a well-maintained MBZ. But maintenance is often expensive and repairs usually are for a German car. Get it checked out be a MBZ specialist. Even exhaust work could cost thousands so you need to know what you're getting into. Paying for an hour's time is a good way to protect yourself.

I've got 125,000 on my 2003 CLK. The cars drives as good as it did, the first day I bought it. Yes, there are some maintenance issues, at times. Some electric, such as the drivers seat operation, with the automatic moving back to make exit/entry easy. But basically, most of my cost of operation has been normal maintenance items. I did upgrade the tires to Michellin. The Continentals were always having side bubbles. Plain junk tires. I maintain the body, and the MB looks and feels like new. People are amazed it has such high miles.
