Looking to purchase a used MB ML. But want to know of any service related issues folks have run into. Car will be used in rural Real-Estate business with many treks through the woods in rough terrain. Car will be a sacraficial tool of the business but I do want it to hold up for a few years.

Thanks in advance.

ml issues

you will replace the window switch assembly at least once, transfer case positioner motors are also suspect. make sure when you test drive that there is no vibration from the t-case when doing parking lot manuevers. regardless, get an extended warranty if you are going to rack up miles beyond the benz warranty. also, the 98's are the worst for problems so caveat emptor (buyer beware). these trucks can be rewarding but be prepared to maintain it properly. make sure the plugs have been changed and that the fuel filter has been updates to the newer style. also the rear shocks get very noisy and are expensive, so see if they've been replaced and pay attention to any squeaking from the rear of the vehicle. other than that, just have your mechanic make sure nothing is leaking. starmarked ml's are definately a plus. good luck and happy hunting...
