to buy or not.... m500

Hello one and all,

My wife needs a new(er) car and we are looking at possibly an M500. Our price range is $10,000- 13,000, so that puts us in a a 2003, 4 or maybe 5. We like the 4 matic thing, and the space in the back. Any thoughts on these?? We live near Telluride, CO and she commutes up the hill every day for work- 4 wheel/ all wheel drive is key.

any feedback is greatly appreciated! feel free to send me a private message too

They are good trucks if they have been maintained. Records are the key to proof of that.

It would make an excellent vehicle for your part of CO.

The ML500 is very nice SUV. For that price range you should be able to find one with low mileage and in nice condition. They do very well in the snow with the proper tires. Make sure that on the one you get that the low range button works (can only be activated when in neutral).
