Options for retirement car?

Asked by Brendan J Wade

I read your articles each week, recently with a little more interest as I am retiring in July after 30 years selling livestock in rural and regional Queensland. I've always had a company vehicle provided and wouldn't know the first thing about buying a car. I am prepared to spend $55,000-$65,000. I have always thought I wanted a Mercedes or something similar, maybe a demo if better value, diesel?

If you're retiring and you have the cash, you should reward yourself. I would recommend the excellent Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but not a diesel unless you do more than 30,000km a year.
