Nice machine with some funny quirks

ReviewWe started looking at ML320s but liked the styling and ride of the RX better. The RX is built on a Camry frame while the ML is a truck and it feels like it. Besides, an MB built in Alabama? Please. I only have one complaint with this car. The brakes sound like a locomotive trying to stop. I started complaining about them at 10,000 miles. The dealership "adjusted" them and supposedly changes some parts. Finally at 36,000 miles, they put on a kit that quieted them down. The new kit only has a few hundred miles on it and so far so good. A $40,000 car shouldn't have that kind of flaw. (In their defense, all the brake work was done under warranty.)
Best FeaturesStyling and finish work is superb. We love the road feel of the car. Lots of interior convenience.
Worst FeaturesWe bought a front wheel drive. It's terrible on ice probably because of the high CG. Not sure how to fix it, I just offer that as a warning.
