Sorry to hear this but glad your son is ok.
Speaking of Jeeps....some model year Liberty's and Grand Cherokee's came with Mercedes designed common rail diesel engines (4 cylinders in the Liberty's and V6's in the Grands, same engine as the ML's).
The Jeep's are cheaper 4x4s than the Mercedes ML's but basically the same powertrain and safety goodies like traction control. Probably cheaper to insure as well. I also believe these Mercedes powered Jeep's also used 722.6 transmissions so maintenance items/procedures are very much what you are used to.
I'd give them a look, they are a rare find, but very good find none the less. I prefer the Grand's, they have a ton more torque and look better in my opinion.
