Cool Howdy from Oklahoma

I've had my 2000 ML430 for 40K now, purchased @ 119K and just loved it until now..

I had hoped to trade it up to a 2006 model @ 200K, but I decided to tune it up fix some minor tappet cover oil leaks while having to replace a MAF Sencor meter, then it went into Limp Home mode and I've got to go back to the transmission repair shop and my 50K service tune up is going to cost over $1000.00 plus??

So, my question is do I trade it as soon as I get it repaired or can I still stick to my plans of selling it @ 200K without any more major expenses and get top trade in or market value for my 2000 model???

Welcome to the forum. Generally fixing it better than taking on a car payment for 4 -5 years.

There is no such thing as a cheap Benz, depends on which car you want and welcome to Benzworld
