I wonder why you say that,

I thought mercedes resale values were good but i've noticed in the car shopping market, the rx holds its value they are selling 60 % of original and so does the x5 ( 50 % of the original )

but the ml seems to have a worser resale value, it is usually like you said not very expensive !

It's a regional thing. Here, the prices haven't budged that much.

They've dropped some but not as uch as I'd have expected. I think the lack of 3rd row and less interior room of the 06 will attarct only a very specific class of buyers. A lot of people with families who want the ML will move to the W163 and that will not help drop the prices, especially in the rural areas. And these people want 3rd row, so 3rd row will be prime. I doubt there'll that much of a price drop on the 163s. I think that despite the W163's problems, there's still a big crowd out there that want the ML - it was a very successfull vehicle for DC, BTW!!!

Any lower on the price of MLs and they'll be free! [:D]
Yes, I think our local Kia dealer is giving away free W163's with every Sorento purchased[:)]

Not everyone is hauling around the Brady Bunch! I personally avoid 3rd row seating like the plague. Not only are 3rd row seats typically worthless and eat up cargo room, they also have the insidious effect of scrunching up the 2nd row seat leg room.
