ML500- Not a Lexus or BMW
By Ken on

Vehicle

2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Squeaky brakes, annoying rattle in the hatch, stiff and sticky gas pedal...all of which the shop foreman has heard before. To fix breaks they will apply an anti-squeal formula for free that will get me through the first year, then what? Check engine light that will not go off...all in the first 5000 miles. Gas mileage is poor but I expected that. Best part is I have to pay for the service intervals....a cost cutting measure in 2005. After seeing all the plastic/rubber on the new 2006 model, I am glad I did not wait. This is my first Mercedes!

Favorite Features

Nice ride and is stout and nice color w/black metallic on black leather. Good power and classy interior.

Suggested Improvements

One-touch moonroof, Michelin radials vs Dunlop, free service intervals, improve GPS input by making keypad more functional. Start producing vintage MB quality or the brand is dead w/in 5 years!
