Default How reliable would be a Mercedes CLK 2001 with 90,000 miles on the clock?

I have just seen a similar car very clean on the oustside and inside drove well. I want to know if 90,000 miles is ok as I know bloke who got a E-Class with less mileage drove well on the test drive but started giving trouble with air-con, electrics and auto-transmission later on.

Mercedes of that age are some of the most unreliable, rust prone cars made in the last 20 years. Look on any Mercedes forum and you will see tales of woe about electrical issues, worn suspension and steering, but particularly rust, and the attitude of Mercedes dealers to the 'alleged' anti rust warranty.

Avoid them like the plague.

Despite their reputation years ago that a Merc would go on forever without any attention it's "Russian Roulette" now and they do need maintaining.
