I would like to echo MB Docís comments: Donít buy a MB prior to the Y2K model year. Iím not a tech, but know of way toooooo many í98 and í99 MLís with problems to feel good about someone buying a used one. While the price might be right, you will most certainly get what you paid for and more, in the form of more problems than you ever wanted.
They are not all bad, but ask yourself, why would someone part with a honey of a car after 2 or 3 years?
Also, in any event, and for any model year, get the MB service history for the vehicle, plus run Car FAX, and unless the car has a complete service history, donít buy it. Lastly, if the only oil changes have been done under the FSS system, DO NOT BUY IT.
