because of their high prices , high labor costs and the fact that many mercedes cars are not made in germany they are now called mercedes "stealerships", they are reasonable cars but audi, bmw, lexus and others are as good if not better

The site referenced is from the National Automotive Dealership Association (www.nada.com). I tried to find this vehicle on kelly blue book but only came up with a 1998 Roadster which had a price of $10,000. For the vehicle you are looking at this was under priced. The first site below shows NADA listing a beginning trade in price of $19,800 (which is less than what a private seller would try to sell it for). The second site comes from Edmunds.com which has 4 listings, 2 dealers (one is the dealer you listed) and 2 private sellers. Notice that the private seller listings are priced less when compared to the miles that are driven on the vehicle. The vehicle that you listed is actually the highest priced with a higher mileage also.

With the amount of mileage that is on the vehicles, typically any manufacturer defects would have been detected and that the vehicles with the lower mileages and lower costs (private sellers) would be most likely the better buy.
