Important                                         **Read This First **

Mercedes C200 Cdi Elegance, 2.2 turbo diesel automatic. 2005 face lift model in excellent condition. Full main dealer Mercedes service history.

This car has a good specification including climate control, tiptronic gearbox, alloy wheels, parking sensors, full electrics and all features you would expect in an Elegance SE model. This car has good tyres and was running perfectly and in daily use with a lady driver.

Whilst driving along, the low water light came on and the car stopped in a cloud of steam. The car was recovered and taken to a garage where a failed water pump was diagnosed. A new water pump was fitted and the car restarted. Although running otherwise perfectly, there was a ticking noise in the engine. Following further work and additional parts, (chain tensioner and hydraulic lifters), the noise had not improved and the lady decided to cut her losses and buy a new car. I have since bought the car as a trade deal and had the engine stripped down to reveal that a small end bearing has failed. There is also damage to one of the bores. This engine is definitely repairable, but if you happened to have another engine handy, or a short engine, this could be a days work as all the strip down has been done. The damage is confined to the short engine, the head and turbo and everything else are undamaged. The car drove in and you would never have known there was a problem other than the ticking noise, there was no smoke or loss of power. All faults are known so this will limit time and expense figuring out what's wrong with it.

Excepting the engine, the rest of the car is in good condition, there are 2 minor scrapes on the bumper corners but that's about it, it would make a really nice car again.  

An independent Mercedes garage has quoted £1200 to fit a replacement engine. The car is worth about £4000 running so there is room for a good profit. Furthermore, if you do replace the engine, the cylinder head and turbo off the old engine are in strong demand and worth good money.

I have had this car sitting around for 3 months now and have spent quite a few quid on labour, with no return. Its time to cut my losses now and let someone else have a go.

If you have any questions, drop me an email. I have a trailer so delivery can be arranged for the price of the fuel within reason.

Good luck
