Unhappy new member needs help with 05 ML350

Recently purchased a 05 ml350 and have encountered the following problems with it at 49,000 miles.
needs a new a/c compressor pulley $465
replace the Rear Main Seal $1617
Transfer Case Output Shaft Seal $208
Front Brake Pads @ 2mm thickness $232
Brake Fluid Flush $99
Hood Struts $164
replace Transmission Cooler Lines $451

If I fix all of this should I be good for a while or is this just going to be a constant headache or repair this or that. this is my first MB and it is turning into a nightmare.

Do a search of the w163 forum and see if there are any common failures with that model.
