Hello from 2004 ml500 owner

Hello MBers

I got ML500 2004 from a private party. It is the inspiron model. When purchasing it I was aware of few problems at the time of purchase
1. Driver seat ..has a hole in it..looks like a cigarette hole..but don't know what it actually is..
2. passenger cup holder does not stay closed
3. No navigation dvd
4. remote keys don't work (prev owner said..just needs new batteries)

After purchase I took it to the dealer..

Dealer said it needs new engine mounts as they are broken. He estimated it at $660 labor and $100 parts. Shopped around and had it done for $570 at autoscope. Also adding batteries to remote did not work so I had to get a new key .. $200 (140 parts + 60 labor).

I still have a list to take care of..
1. Transfluid
2. Brake pad and Rotors
3. Powersteering fluid
4. ball and socket
5. Passenger cup holder
6. hood structs
7. Navigation system dvd/ upgrade to pioneer

But the driving it ... make it all worth it.
