    at 17 years old that is not too high a mileage. a delivery van of the same age although now probably razor blades would of gone several times round the clock. make sure its been regularly serviced and cambelt recently changed

    Sensible mileage for age of vehicle and Mercs dont have cambelts, timing chain instead.

    Should be OK for miles, check age of tyres and service history and DAMP
