Considering Purchasing 2009 ML Bluetech
I'm considering purchasing a ML 320 Bluetech for the wife. It's an interesting vehicle with great gas mileage and the ability to tow my boats etc.
My concern is how much time this car might spend in the shop and repair bills.
We just sold our CLK55 AMG Convertible which had 5 engine oil leaks, two tranny leaks, one axle leak, mass air sensor failure etc. in the last 13 months. It only had 42k on odometer when we sold it. Most unreliable car I've ever had, by a good measure.
I'm having a very hard time getting comfortable with the idea of owning another problem child. Once bite, twice shy.
I was hoping the forum could give me some feedback on their GenII ML exprience. The service manager at MB he said that the motor mounts ($1000) and valve seals ($300) go out every 65k miles or so...
