#34 of 167 Desert Silver 2001 ML430

Hi... I'm Will (aka CDIC). I too have a desert silver ML430. It also has the dreaded Sport package (which I love), complete with the huge wheels and fender flares, Xenons (which I love too), Bose, Nav, etc. So far, it is flawless and has been an excellent performer. I have already seen the yellow -!- triangle light up several times in bad weather (New England snow and slush).
A long time SUV driver, I watched patiently over the past few years as Mercedes perfected this car. Some of the features that became available for this model year (Sport pkg, Tele Aid, Nav) intrigued me enough to visit the local dealer. I dumped the 5 year old Toyota 4Runner (my 4th 4Runner) and bought a ML430 off the lot. So far, I am far from sorry.

I am on my second ML, had 99 ML320 and now ML 2000.
I am seeking MB to build a larger SUV.
current size is adequate, could use more for trips and family.

hi all. hhookkkked on Edmunds, gotten great info from all since 1998. My ruby red 98 has had some of the first year problems,none of the serious ones (?) Just had the air flow mixture flap replaced,was only getting hot air off the engine..Service center ( 1 of only 3 world wide) gave me a Hertz rental (01 Ford Taurus station wagon),had no appointment so they could not work on mine until the next day but wanted me to leave ml there. Ford wagon ok but wouldn't buy one. ML's the only one for me....Dealer and service center people have been great. F.J Imports Las Vegas,Nv Happy to meet everyone.. vj

My name is Ron and I live in Louisville, KY. I have a 00 320 with 7500 miles and a build date of 07/00. Great info on the board.

I am Ron (AKA Sydney6) with a 00320 White/Java build date 9/99. It's actually my wife's car, but I even get to drive it occasionally. Other than a bad fuel sending unit, bubbling armrest, and slow clock, (and a couple of other minor problems I can't even remember right now)it has been 18.5K miles of trouble-free, rattle-free driving joy.
BTW, I still have 3,300 miles until Service B.

As long as you don't drool on the windows and keep your head inside the vehicle at all times, you're very welcome here!

Hi Y'all. I just purchased a 1998 ML320 with 13,600 km (8200 miles). Service date was Feb.2,1998. Not bad, huh?? Any suggestions on what I should look out for on this new a '98? I was ensured all recalls had been taken care of.
Looking forward to your comments ... Harry
