You are sounding just as you say.,.
This forum is not about knocking someone down lower then they already are. It is about lending a hand of advice to pull them up.
Sorry you had issues with yours, but had you joined when you owned your 2001 you may of had a better ML experience, as many of us current ML enthusiasts are having.
And a 2014 can not be compared to a w163.
Wrong .... I’ve been though (A lot) of Mercedes and still have our 98 ML320 to this day (10+years) it’s the Best Mercedes we’ve owned here’s an number of MBs We’ve owned the past W210 E55 ,w202 C36, w203 c230k hatch, 00 ML55, 00 ML 320 designo 450SL (sold recently). W124 300D turbo etc....not to sound like a total douche but hopefully this is a valuable lesson for both of you. For him leading the importance of his belongings and taking care of his things starts with him not losing the most important thing to be able to drive a car. Lesson for you. You should’ve never bought him a 98’ ML. The old ML’s are the biggest pieces of junk Mercedes has ever made. I’ve had an SL, CLK, 2 ML’s and my CLK 430 was the best car I’ve ever owned. My 2001 ML 430 was pure garbage. I bought a 2014 ML that was a year old and that was a pretty well made car but only kept it for a few years. Next time you buy your kid a first car get him a 4cyl Toyota or Honda as they are almost bulletproof. Old German cars are money pits and not made for kids. They are great for enthusiasts who like to tinker and waste money.
Current MBs GLK 350 , C32, (2) C230 kompressor sedans, And a 1998 ML 320
(Former Mercedes Benz technician) ... 2014 ML? Lol just Wait .....
