Newbie from Bay Area

Hello, New to this forum but for every car I own I join the forum...That means I am a member of the Focus Fanatics for my '04 Focus, Mirafiori for my '71 Fiat 124 Coupe project and '74 X19 and now Benzworld for my new to me '99 ML 320. The Focus is strictly a commuter and I haven't done anything special with it, the '71 Coupe is a work in progress after I sold my '81 124 Spider and is strictly for fun, the '99 ML is the grocery getter/kid hauler. Have owned the ML for about a year now and the only problem I've had on it so far are the "machine gun locks" and a fuel pump going out on me on the fwy but luckily I have a bit of experience with breaking down (see: vintage Fiat owner). I will be doing a search on those locks and maybe find some advice on replacing my pass. side mirror cover after a little love tap from a passing car. Thanks! Mayuko

Welcome aboard!! (I'm over on the north peninsula.)

You'll find a wealth of knowledge and some great folks in the W163 forum.

Compared to the Fiat, the ML has to be a study in reliability.

Take care and enjoy the ride,

Already have! Some great tutorials on here. Going try my hand at fixing the locks and upgrading to the led mirror covers as soon as I have some free time. The Coupe is getting way too much attention these days...

Welcome. Had no idea Mirafiori made it to California. They have been very hot cars in Europe at its time.
I did own (read repair) Fiat 125 back in Poland, so maybe some time we can see it together?
