After owning 30+ other European cars, I am giving Mercedes a shot.

Picking up an ML430 with 180k on the clock. (hopefully.... going to test drive/buy it after work) It is the fully loaded with Nav and everything. What are some things I should look out for? I will be doing my browsing of the site until I leave work in a couple hours, but some friendly assistance would be nice even though I am new here.

Thanks in advanced, and look forward to making this my new time waster rather than SaabCentral or VWVortex haha

Have a browse through this section;

W163 M-Class - - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

As this car is a fairly high mileage ask when the transmission fluid and filter were last changed. The transmission service should have been performed at least twice since the car was new.
