So i found this really nice fully loaded 2014 Mercedes cla 45 for only $22k and it seems like a really fun car based on the videos I’ve watched about it. I was wondering if it’s worth it or if I’m setting myself up for failure buying an amg with that many miles

Welcome to the CLA Forum 6StarJ
a) Suggest that you pull a CarFax report, to check maintenance and accident history.
b) Check KBB and CarMax to check values for your area.

it depends if its had all the maintenance done. a mercedes dealer will tell you and/or look at the carfax. definitely get a PPI. and use the high mileage to talk down the price as much as possible, plus have about $4k in reserve for any potential hiccups.

Get oil samples from the motor and gearbox and send it out for analyses
Very revealing in most cases

I had a Cla45 with 130000km bought brand new...don't but if you cannot get a maintenance plan from mercedes.

I had so many issues with mine after 100000...petrol pump, cylinder coils, vacuum system to name the least.
