My first Benz

ReviewI recently purchased my first Mercedes- Benz, a black '00 ML320 with 48,000 miles. I get a lot of weird looks from other ML drivers, as I'm only 21 years old, but nonetheless, I love my car! It rides very smoothly and I've got a great view of the road. The only gripes I have: 1) vehicle was leaking oil a couple of days after I purchased it; the problem was a leaky crankshaft seal and a bad crankshaft pulley, which I was told by the technician was a common problem with the V6 motor. 2) the liftgate rattles when I drive over any bump, and sounds horrible when I close it. Otherwise, it's a great car to drive.
Best FeaturesIt's a Mercedes-Benz, so all my friends assume I paid a lot (I didn't). Large sunroof. Extra power plug in the dash so I can charge my cell phone and use my radar detector simultaneously. The manual-shift transmission feature. The cool folding key. The left-hand side driver cupholder.
Worst FeaturesThe awful rattles coming from the liftgate. The CD changer should be accessible to the driver, not in the cargo area. The stereo controls are a far reach away on the passenger's side. No lumbar support, variable setting for wipers, or stereo controls on steering wheel. Windows roll up too slow.
