Just the Beginning... I Hope

2000 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 4dr SUV AWD
We were shopping for a used SUV of far newer age but found this 2000 M-B ML430 really cheap at a small local used car lot. (The owner of the business has been in the same spot since 1987 and the entire community knows and respects him.)
The ML430 had been sitting idle for about two years. It has some minor dings, a few rust spots from sitting under an old tree on his lot but was otherwise quite intact.
Upon first test drive, we were immediately impressed. The only problem on day one was that it had 87 octane gas so we had to fill 'er up with some good stuff. It needed an oil change and the plugs (all 16 of them!) will be done be day's end today.
This vehicle, even with 133k, far out-drives every other SUV we have tested over the last two weeks.
Handling, braking, solid feel, highway performance, etc.
