Price Advice 2016 Wagon

Would appreciate any advice on what would be a good percentage off the original MSRP for a 2016 CPO wagon with low miles.

We are keeping our current wagon but have been offered a good price on our non-MB vehicle (my husband decided he didn't need another MB 15 months ago but is now having second thoughts) and may need to make some quick decisions.

We are happy to be a 2 wagon household!

I found a low mileage wagon with options and color combo I like but it's not local and can't negotiate in person and it's not the dealership we've done business with for many years.

Just looking for ballpark % of the original MSRP.

Thanks.

Although not exactly apples to apples, I got 18% off MSRP on my wagon buying brand new. Good luck!

Also if anyone has an opinion if there is any compelling reason to wait a few years for a later year wagon. We keep our cars and will probably retire in a few years and this could be the last high end vehicle we purchase. We'd probably still have our 2004 wagon and 2010 GLK if the dealership did not have an accident with the first and a dump truck didn't total the 2nd. Thanks.

While subjective, I'll offer my thoughts. Assuming the 2016 wagon is a 350, then consider the lack of turbo charging, in terms of longevity. Turbo engines are reliable for sure, but it's simply an added cost down the road.

Drive an E300 sedan as a loaner if you can to see if the new interior is something that seriously wows you. I did, and it is nice. But I fear all those niceties will cost $$$ down the road. But I lease.

Your use case is different and I would go with a 212 wagon over a 213 in a couple years time given your needs.

I purchased my 2016 E350 wagon (non-CPO) in December at 26% off its MSRP. It had low mileage (6000 miles) and was traded in for a non-MB SUV after 3 months of use.

If you hold on to your vehicles for a long time and do not put a lot of annual mileage you may want to consider buying a non-CPO 2016 wagon and purchase a MB Extended Limited Warranty (ELW) to go with it. To me the only major difference between the two is that the CPO warranty is unlimited mileage whereas a MB ELW covers a fixed amount of mileage (up to 100k miles). If you include the cost of my separate MB ELW purchase (7 yr/75k option) I paid 23% off MSRP.

Non-CPO is always an option I consider. I only average 3k miles per year and own my vehicles for long periods of time. My 2016 MB E350 wagon replaced my used 2002 VW Passat wagon (non-CPO) that I owned for 12 years.

Your situation may lead you to different purchase considerations.

I am a bit confused. My 2013 wagon was a CPO and I was planning on buying an ELW before that warranty runs out but perhaps when I bought my 20313 (in 2015) the CPO warranty was not unlimited mileage. Even so, isn't it also a time period &/or miles?

Looks like I am not going to pursue the one vehicle I found as the salesperson took way to long to respond with a "best" price (contacted Thursday AM-heard back yesterday afternoon) that was 14-15% off MSRP, did not answer many of my questions and then texted me at 9PM last night that they wouldn't hold the car even with a deposit and that i had to wire $ before I left to see the car. And he expected me to be there today!

I purchased 2 cars in the past from dealers who were 4-5 hours away with no issues and better customer service. There seems to be a fair amount of CPO wagons with low miles out there let alone non-CPO and I am in no hurry.

Teksury - you are right. I should go look and drive a 2016 and better evaluate pro's & con's. Thanks.

For warranty purposes, either it's a CPO warranty with unlimited miles or it's an ELW. They're two separate things. ELW you can only buy if it still has some of the original warranty and it's not a CPO. If it's a CPO, it comes with a 1 year warranty and you can buy up to 2 additional years with unlimited miles. ELW you can go as high as 7 years and either 75 or 100k coverage. Coverage is similar but they each have their quirks, not sure exactly which one is better. I think CPO there's no refund for unused amount but ELW you can get a refund for unused amount. Also because CPO has to go through the certification process, it's probably cheaper getting a car and adding ELW instead of 3 years of CPO.
