While taking the 300CD in for

servicing at my independent mechanic, I noticed that one of the guys (Mr. Sing, a Vietnamese who does incredible diagnoses by EAR)was working on an ML, which I have heard have LOTS of problems.

I asked Mr. Sing if the MLs were bad cars.

"Not for us!" was his response.

The CD got its detailed "shave, shine and haircut" for under $100.

Yeah, I have heard in some quarters that ML= Jeep. Take that any way you like.

Easy on the jeeps! Not even including the contribution during WWII, jeeps are probably one of the few american vehicles to hold up like these MB's. Maybe you meant Chrysler=ML=Jeep. Granted no 'real' jeeps were built after 1986 when Chrysler took over. ML= TJ or YJ I would accept (hence the new Liberty), but easy on the CJ's and earlier. Mine has over 200,000 miles on it ( almost no highway and a lot of off-road) and still goes strong and looks good. I'll take on an ML any day off-road. God help us if Chrysler does to MB what it did to Jeep. In my opinion, buying a truck from a passenger car company isn't so smart anyway. It's like complaining that the caviar at the HessMart isn't salty enough. BTW, as a result of the Daimler-Chrysler arrangement, the Jeep Liberty will soon be available with a 4.0L diesel. That will be a great truck.
