I may have introduced myself already, so this will be short.
I live in Montana, I purchased this MB for little to nothing, had to purchase a battery and key....why the previous owner sold was it would only run for a second or two. The new key fixed it.
Driving it steady for four months now...4000 miles, pulls my 20' boat just fine...took it hunting, was the talk of the hill. Mnaged to get a whitetail deer in the cargo area...but the elk, we had to use a trailer.
Not convinced I'd ever purchase another, unless it was a screaming deal....
Interior is cheap plastic, something is always falling off (trim, cupholders). Can't feel the seat heat.
Engine uses a significant amount of oil. Doesn't show in the exhaust, no major leaks, but it is going somewhere.
And now, since it has snowed here and the roads are slick, the ABS doesn't work. I'll be looking into this soon.
Unless something is overwhelming, I will repair this vehicle myself, so some un-neccessary items may go unfixed.
Well, this ought to tell you enuf about me....we will see soon how the MB handles the snowmobile trailer and Lolo Pass. Thanx for this site...
Happy Holidays to all
