I went to the dealer and he had a about 6 sheets full of repairs on my ML from the first owner (WOW). I asked for a copy but he wanted $90 even after I had just spent $1,200 on repairs. I really would like to know what the history of the truck is, can some one please help... Thanks in advance guys.

I would call another dealership. The Dealer here in Charleston (Smith) were rude when I had asked for a VMI on a prospective preowned ML, but did (reluctantly) give it to me……then they turned into total rude asses and I went to OH to buy an ML.

One would think they would rather be forthright and disclose what has been done……but car dealers are rarely known for being honest.

Seriously, call the next closest dealership and ask them to fax you a copy of the VMI….also, check online and see if they have a comparable MB on their lot and ask for its VMI also.

My 2 cents :)
Holy Crap!! Deer Whisltes?!?! HAHAHA! Not the typical mod we read about here, huh? :D

Please also see the PM.

That was not me who did that for someone else. I guess I was lucky to find the dealer who sold my car new, and had done all of the A and B services for the first 50,000 miles. I was pretty sure where the car came from because it still had the front plate with their name on it. I was also lucky because I did not have that info until after I bought the car from another dealer.

That 1st dealer gave me a printout for free of all warranty work and also everything the customer paid for. (for Mercbear - this car had deer whistles at some point!)

$90 is outrageous for a few pages of text, and I hope you find a solution.
