Being relisted due to a non-paying bidder. Up for auction is a 2003 Mercedes Benz c-240 4-Matic with 166,750 and No Reserve. Purchased here on eBay back in 2007 off lease from a dealer with 60,000 miles at the time. Car runs and drives well. Car has been maintained, with most recent maintenance being new struts, shocks, tires and brakes within the last 2 years. Being an 18 year old car, it does have some issues:
1) I am a cigar smoker and have smoked in the car. If you are allergic to smoke or generally prefer a smoke-free car, then this car is not for you, and you should not bid.
2) The car has started to develop some rust, with the worst of it at the edge of the drivers side door and in the middle of the passenger's side door. The passenger side door will probably require some patching.
3) While all the tires are recent and have at least 60% thread life, the passenger side front tire has a bubble on the side and will eventually have to be replaced. I have driven the car with the issue, but would not recommend going over 50 MPH.
4) the windshield wiper fluid tank has a crack and leaks. I have provided a spare as a replacement, and Youtube videos show the repair to take about 2 hours.
5) The lock on the tilt/telescopic column is broken. While I had no issue with driving with it, it may affect other drivers. I have found Youtube videos online which shows how to repair it without having to buy a used locking mechanism, as a New one will cost in excess of $800.
6) The stepper motor (part of the A/C system) makes a clicking sound for about 5 seconds upon vehicle start up. Doesn't affect the driving of the car or the functioning of the A/C. While the replacement motor is approximately $100, it involves removing the entire dashboard, as it is located behind the radio.
7) The driver's side "Door Open" warning switch is cracked and needs to be replaced. Part can be found here on eBay (approx. $30) and will take about an hour to replace according to the Youtube videos I found online.
There may be some minor nits I might have missed (some interior cleaning?), but have tried to describe to the best of my ability all known issues. Starting the bidding at $200, which is half the price that the engine in the car sells for here on eBay, with No Reserve. I will require a $200 deposit via Paypal within 48 hours of auction end, with a cashier's check, cash or personal check for the balance. If you intend to pay by personal check, I will send the title after the check clears the bank. If you will pick up the car in person, will need to schedule a pick-up date after the check clears. Will not accept a personal check on the date of pick-up, only cash or cashier's check. I do not accept payment via escrow. Shipping is the buyer's responsibility, but will help with loading. Buyer has up to 30 days post closing of the auction to pick up car after full payment. Vehicle will be relisted if deposit is not received within the 48 hours after auction close and full payment not received with 10 days after auction close. Any additional questions, please contact me through the eBay Message system.
