2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
My recent lease of an M350 SE was among the
easiest decisions of my car buying life. The
3.5 liter engine is extremely responsive from
2500 to 4000 rpm, the range I normally
utilize, giving the car a very nimble feeling.
While I see many who criticise the M's road
manners I find the handling precise and
responsive. There is almost no roll when
hitting a curve a bit too fast, giving the driver
tremendous confidence in the steering input.
This vehicle simply has that great Mercedes
rock solid feel and very little in the way of
harsh feedback. Fuel milage is poor, but not
any worse than the Envoy or Trailblazer (we
also own the Envoy). Beautifully appointed, fun
