I am planning to buy a used CLS 500 Model 2005, with a very good service history...

Honestly i am little bit hesitating to buy for 2 reasons:

* the first reason is that i am not sure when the new look will come out, in this case the existing model will loose a lot
* The second reason is the high maintenance fees, as the CLS 500 includes many features, i am afraid that i will pay lots of money to keep them working properly.

Can anyone advise

Best Regards

new body styles are generally every 7 years for Mercedes and they are expensive to maintain however the cls is a reliable car and has very few common problems. always remember that part prices reflect new car prices not used car prices. the value of the car may drop but the prices of parts may go up from lack of demand
