I just went to look at a Used Mercedes Benz being sold by a private owner. One look at the car and I remembered why I refuse to buy from anywhere other than a dealership. The car was in horrible shape. I don’t think the guy made any attempt to clean it up before I came to look at it and yet the price was ridiculously high. I’m going to the dealership to get my new car. By doing so, I get a car that has been through an inspection and has been cleaned up also. It’s worth it to pay a little more for that alone.
