Bayer,

Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!


Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.




If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
If you wish to PM (Private Message) someone, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.

Thank you,
Jeff

I think it would be better to use a service like CarChex to inspect the car.

https://www.carchex.com/car-inspections

But that's just me.

Welcome, and I tend to agree with Mycroft - or hop on a plane!

I did look into hiring a private company like carchex. What discouraged me is that pretty much all these company's have people like me an you checking cars out. Anyone off the street can become a car inspector. All you need is a car to get on site and a camera and your now your a car inspector. I just looked on the website "carchex" it look more professional and price is reasonable compared to some other companies I looked into. I agree with you guy's I may go for the "Carchex" But I'm still open to someone else having a look, they can reach me on here.

Thanks

Check out this forum member's experience with Carchex and you might feel better. Of course, every transaction will be different, but at least Carchex has them do the inspection with some kind of a check list.

Welcome from Phoenix. You could tell Grand Prix Motor to drop off the car at Mercedes of Portland and let the Mb Dealer do an inspection. Mb Dealers also do inspections.

Only Paul if you:

Just kidding, John will get it for you, but please update your profile
