Greetings folks

I am the owner of a 2001 ml320 with 85k miles on it. I purchased the car about a year ago with 65k miles on it.

I have been less than steller when it comes to maintance, I have chgd the oil once and nothing else. Please advise what services I should have done at this time.

Also
I currently have a donut on the car as I wait for my new tires to come in and didnt want the added expense of buying a used tire. I dont know if it's a conincendance or not, however since the donut has been on the transmission seems to be reving higher or takes longer to chg gears.

Please provide any possible sugguestions and/or advice

You should check the air and cabinet filters.

Also consider changing the brake and coolant fluids too.
