Should I buy a high-mileage Mercedes-Benz ML?

I currently have a 2013 Nissan Qashqai petrol. I've had it from new, but really want my dream car, which is a Mercedes ML. However, I can only afford a 2007 or 2008 model with high mileage, but been told that buying a high mileage Mercedes-Benz is not a problem. Is this true?

The MB badge does not guarantee problem free and the ML is in fact an American car, not a German car.
