1 owner @ 79km looks good from a vehicle/owner perspective.THEY must have been happy with it to have kept it from new.Is all the documentation there (service history) Parts replaced etc? As Peter says it IS a MERC.

Its km not miles 79.000 the inside is very clean and as far as i can see its got everything I need that. The garage had a good look at it and said it was ok and when i drove it back it went like a dream all the paperwork is in order the garage had a look at the the cost is 11 grand. Just thought i ask to see if there were any problems with them to look for.

That's how I read it Ken.Not a great mileage for a Merc and 10 year old vehicle.11 grand too.Very affordable if the condition is ok.

Are you living in Spain?

Have it checked out habitation wise and if all is ok then it seems quite a decent deal. I would not let the milage be a worry. Vans that are driven more often give less problems than those that are left to stand for long periods.
I recently looked at a similar model here with another user intrested in buying but sadly there was quite a lot of damp :Sad

So if yours is clear it sounds great.

Hi kenspain we own a pilote galaxy on a 03 plate and think it's the bees knees, if the habitation check comes back ok i think it's a good deal and would go for it.Best of luck
