For Sale: W163 2002 ML500 (Southern California)

Hey fellas --

Thought I'd post a link to the car ad for my fellow enthusiasts. Selling the trusty Millennium Falcon.

This is an EXTREMELY rare, 2002 Mercedes ML500 Light Truck, Sport Edition. It has been in my possession since 2004, when it had 30,000 miles on it. It has a CLEAN Title, has never been in a wreck.

It has been meticulously maintained and serviced regularly all of its life. It has been garaged, and primarily was driven on the highway until coming to Los Angeles. The interior, as you can see is in immaculate shape. I also have 90% of the service records. It has a few miles on it (325k), but the engine is stronger, and transmission shifts smoother than 99% of the cars on the road today -- you can drive it for yourself and see why.

This car has been an absolute joy to drive, never misses a beat, has never left me stranded, and has one of the most solid engines (the M113 V8), and transmissions (the 722.6) that Mercedes has ever made. I am selling the truck as had a baby and looking for something newer while transporting precious cargo.

**For those specifically looking for an older ML, this is the 2002-2005 variant, which received a complete overhaul from the first generation of ML's Mercedes produced from 98-2001. This is known as the "facelift" model.

Happy to answer any and all questions. T

In addition to the factory options, here are some recent upgrade/maintenance on the truck all done in the last 2 years:

-- Updated radio with SiriusXM, Navigation, Bluetooth, Pandora, and Backup Camera (Car has 9 Bose speakers as well)
-- Wood Steering Wheel
-- New Shocks and Shock Absorbers
-- 2 New Tires
-- AC Compressor, Condenser, Expansion Valve, Dryer replaced @ 290k miles with OEM equipment (original lasted from delivery)
-- New Battery (9/2018)
-- New Fuel Filter
-- New Power Steering Pump
-- New Serpentine Belt, Idler Pulley, Water Pump
-- New Spark Plugs & Wires
-- New Valve Cover Seals
-- New Radiator, Cooling Hoses, Coolant Reservoir Tank
-- New MAF sensor
-- New EGR tube
-- New Thermostat
-- New Engine and Transmission Mounts
-- Transmission recently serviced with flush/fill, new conductor plate
-- Oil was changed 4k miles ago

UPDATE: SOLD

She is off to what I hope is a great, new home. The buyer could tell I was having a tough time letting her go and said I will have full visitation rights.
