ISTR from the dim and distant past (40+ years ago) the advice was to
avoid buying second hand automatics that had done a lot of towing.
After all these years I can't recall what the reasoning was and am
hoping someone can bring me up to date on this one as I'm viewing a
2003 Mercedes E270CDI auto estate tomorrow that's done a fair bit.
It's current mileage is 130k miles. The owner (a keen caravaner) says
he's kept on top of the maintenance and it's recently had new shocks
fitted. I don't plan to do any towing with it, however.
Should I be wary or avoid altogether?
