I must depart from my ML. I advertised it last week. It has 70k miles, fully loaded with navigation. very clean, never hit, all work done by dealer. I have a VMI. (No running boards)
Price is $19.5K
Do you think its fairly advertised?

I would have advertised it for 21k. If you go to a lot, the Ml's are still selling around 22k on upwards[8)] Dont sacrifice your asking price. Unfortunately the dealer black book did not like the Ml's because of all of its problems. Edmunds was a little more liberal with their pricing.

I think your price is just about right, got this from Kelly's Blue Book:

2000 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class ML320 Sport Utility 4D

Engine: V6 3.2 Liter
Trans: Automatic
Drive: 4 Wheel Drive
Mileage: 71,000


Equipment:
Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Tilt Wheel, Cruise Control, AM/FM Stereo, Cassette, Multi Compact Disc, Premium Sound, Navigation System, Dual Front Air Bags, Traction Control, Leather, Dual Power Seats, Skyview Roof, Roof Rack, Privacy Glass, Running Boards, Grille Guard, Premium Wheels

Retail Value: $23,040

The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail Value is representative of dealers' asking prices and is the starting point for negotiation between a consumer and a dealer.

Hope this helps, and good luck

A dealer offered me 14.5 to trade for a clk 320 (99). I could not sleep at night knowing that I would lose over $10k on it in over one year period. So I think I will probably negotiate to about $18.5 since I recently lost my job and won't be able to afford the payments! Such is life.[:(]
