Not sure what you are talking about....yes, Mercedes-Benze of Anaheim is the dealership I purchased from and I bought a 2010 not a 2009. There were no 2009s when I went there. The 2009 I spoke of purchasing in previous blogs were from Mercedes of Escondido. There were 4 of them there as of 1 week ago. Two silver c300s with msrps of 41,770 and the other a little less b/c of no wood inside. There was a white one with a stick shift and a c350 silver with a msrp around 45,000 with a panoramic roof....wasn't interested so didn't look carefully. I'm not really sure where your confusion is, but I looked back at my prior posts to see what you might be talking about. You must have thought I was saying there were 30 or more 2009s at Anaheim. I was talking about the 2010s because I was saying that the 2010s were almost the same deal as a 2009 if you were financing and there were far more choices and combos than a 2009. Hope this clears things up! If you are looking for a 2009 then check Escondido. There are 3 2009s at Walter's Mercedes in Riverside, but they didn't tell me until I got there that they had 100 miles on a couple of them and 400 on another. They also had changed out wheels and added crap to them and had the grill painted on one...weird stuff!

You're right. Thanks for the info. I was confused.
I'm now dealing with Anaheim. They actually remembered your deal and say they're willing to repeat it. Did they really give you the comp room to the Wynn Hotel in Vegas?
What options did you get?
#1021 of 1300 2007 CPO C280 4matic
Dec 09, 2009 (11:04 am)
I am considering the MB C280 4matic. Found a dealer that uses them for loaner cars. A bunch of them have just come off loaner and they are selling them. Prices seem very good, 39K miles for $22,000. Any thoughts on this deal? Any experinces buying CPO loaner cars from dealerships? Any help is greatly appreciated. I was considering the BMW 328xi and Audi A4 quattro, but those seem to be priced at least $3000 higher, which is out of my budget.

Mileage seems to be high, but you did not mention the year of the car. Anything more than 12,000 per year is considering high mileage. On another hand, if you don't drive a lot - it may be a good deal, because the mileage can catch up with it's age and the car will continue to retain it's value. Original warranty is 4years or 50.000 miles whichever comes first, so it has only 11,000 miles left. But if it is Certified (you have to make sure), you get additional year and up to 100,000 miles warranty. The good place to research CPO pricing is here: Find Certified Pre-Owned MBZ Locally, - just wait a few seconds until it loads in real time.
Hope it helps.

I got a quote for a 2010 C300 sports sedan with premium package 1 and multimedia package for $2200 down, $550/month for 39 months. The Mercedes dealership is also taking my leased BMW out of my hands that has 5000 miles over the limit at no cost to me. What do you think about the price?
#1024 of 1300 09 C350 Incentives?
Dec 13, 2009 (3:52 pm)
My local dealership has a new (~500 miles) 09 C350 for sale MSRP $46,640. They have it on sale for $41,640 is this a good price? Looking at previous post, it looks like they were going for up to -10K below MSRP with the incentives at that time. Are their any current incentives? And what would be a good offer to take this 09 off there hands?

Most dealers punched their 09 leftovers before the incentives went down. Usually, the dealer "buys" the car for its service loaner fleet. If that's the case with this car, the dealer cash was $5k. You should be able to do at least $8-9k off.

I agree with vinny. I heard they buy them when incntives were out and never technically titled them so they are still "new". I was offered 9k off sticker at one time...good luck
#1027 of 1300 Got it! MB is dealing...
Dec 15, 2009 (3:58 pm)
Just offered $1800 under invoice for any 2010 C300 in inventory in CA dealership. Texas and Kansas offered $1250 under. It evens out because shipping costs eat up a good chunk of the $1800.
Thanks for the info -scgirl1-.
#1028 of 1300 How is this deal?
Dec 24, 2009 (6:29 pm)
2010 c300 sport.
$613 for 60 months or
$560 for 66 months
$5000 sign off
is this good? bad?
any tips to avoid dealer scamming me once i actually go to the dealer?
any deals i should know about?
Can i still ask for more? like make them add rear spoiler or something?
How is the warranty? what does it cover? where can i get more information on warranty?
What should i get once i paid the $5000 walk off from the dealer?
I know it's a long question, but it's going to be my first new car. I've driven used car my entire life, don't know anything.
