Hello All.
For sale is our trusty family steed, a Mercedes Benz ML 280 CDI Sport 4-Matic in Obsidan Black with a Black and Grey Artico/Alcantara interior with Aluminium trim, having been replaced after a few years of sterling service.
Options-wise, it has pretty much everything you could hope for on this model, with the Sports Package (including Tiptronic Paddle Gear-Shift), Privacy Glass, Power Bootlift, Front and Rear Parktronic, Climate Control, Heated/Power Seats, Cruise Control, Bluetooth Phone System, 20" Twin-Spoke Alloys all present, with the only obvious emission being COMAND Sat-Nav which, depending on your opinion on this system, may be something of a relief!
Originally registered on 5/2/09 (as you will have noticed, it is the last, face-lifted incarnation of this model), we became the 3rd owners of this fine car on 26/10/12 when it had 65,268 miles on the clock. It has now covered 86,400 miles (despite its replacement having arrived, it is still being used occasionally, so this might rise a little), with its MOT expiring on 27/8/14, and its RFL expiring on 31/10/14.
It has a full service history, with its first service at Mercedes Benz Loughborough at 33,626 miles, its second at Mercedes Benz Walsall at 50,038 miles and, since we acquired it at 65,268 miles, it has been regularly serviced and upgraded at a local specialist garage (FX Motorsport of Clitheroe, owned by a good friend of mine) until the present day (All paperwork is provided to support this, along with the full, original owners pack, and 2 keys). Most recently, the brakes were renovated, with new discs and pads installed on the back wheels and, to this day, it has never missed a beat in any regard, and remains a really terrific mode of transport. Needless to say, it looks a treat (the paintwork still gleams like a new pin), it drives beautifully and, as its main purpose in life has been to transport my wife and young son around, it has been maintained regardless of cost with genuine Mercedes parts used at all times.
That said, it is far from perfect, as you might reasonably expect from a car of this age and mileage.
Whilst the cabin is in really good order, there are a couple of seatbelt-dings to the Aluminium front-door trims (common, i am told, and only £50 a door to remedy if perfection is desired), the chrome foot-plates and boot-plate show signs of use (light, superficial scratching), the painted-finish in the centres of a couple of the alloy wheels is starting to blister a little (again, an inexpensive renovation is easily organised) and all 4 Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tyres are, whilst fully-legal, now evenly-worn down to roughly 3-4mm or so, so will need replacing in a few thousand-miles time.
With all that less-than-perfect stuff out in the open, if you have any further questions or need any more information (i am sure to have missed something important!), please do not hesitate to ask, and those with a genuine interest in buying are welcome to call me on 07974 083330 to discuss, or to organise a viewing/test/purchase. Having just benefitted from a full, professional valet, there is no better time to cast your eye over it, so a prompt response is recommended in order not to miss out. However, rest assured that time-wasters will be treated with the distain and contempt they deserve. Life is short, time is precious, so no tyre-kickers please.
I look forward to hearing from you if appropriate, and am confident that whoever views this car will find it entirely as described, with no nasty surprises to be found and, at the price it is offered, a really handsome, capable machine for the money, with years of reliable service still to offer.
Thank you for your interest,
