Meet Matilda

This is Matilda our New to us, 2002 ML500.

After owning a 1994 C200 in Italy, i decided that i should get another Merc upon returning to the states, and after much research (thanks ML folks) my wife and i started looking at ML's here.

We looked at quite a few but everything seemed to be pointing us to Matilda. We managed to haggle the dealership down to 10k.

She has 71,000 miles and a full history. And will be in our driveway this week.

I think you hit a very good one. That year with that low mileage means to me that the owner was very satisfied with the truck. Usually unsatisfied owners will get rid of them prior to the 50K warranty limit. At over 60K, most of the "issues" would've been dealt with - I hope!

Matilda in that color! No way. I see Matilda as a mean black monster!

Welcome to Benzworld and please add your car to your profile as it is useful info on a car forum and then you will not have to explain which car you have each time you post a question, thanks.

Congratulations on your purchase!

She looks great!

I'm really happy for you and I'm glad that you went for the 'heavier' V8 ML500.

pdxgrease, I'm thinking of YOU and grinning as I type this
