Mercedes great car for the money!

2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Base

Great car! Has low miles... very little issues! Doesn't have good gas mileage though and has rust but, is a nice solid car! The car is solid and very heavy which is a great safety item. Very comfortable and very roomy inside! My only problem was the car is for the money way too much rust

300,000 miles and still running

2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Base

300,000 miles and going strong with usual wear and tear but it runs great. The key is regular oil changes and always filling/checking oil. Amazing car if taken care of. There is obvious wear and tear on interior but that can be fixed. The car runs still at nearly 300,000

Mercedes. Benz ml 500 powerful, but with a hefty gas price.

2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Base

Poor gas mileage, high horsepower, can run for a ton of miles, requires 93 octane gas, very spacious, complete degree set thermostat, rear control heat and ac, towing capability, v8 engine, simple cruise control, and power sunroof for those summer days.
