2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

This vehicle has the best heating and air-conditioning system I have ever experienced. The optional three zone system with infared glass makes it really comfortale in the sun. The car handles very well, the speed-variable steering is a very important standard option. The optional parktronic system makes it very easy to get into the garage each day without parking by "brail". The seats are very comfortable, they allow you to drive for long distances without the normal "back-ache". It is not the cheapest vehicle, but with all the options and safety features is a bargain.


Best Features

Steering wheel, mirrors, and seat are memorized for up to three people. So each time someone else drives it I do not have to find all the "spots" again.


Worst Features

Certain options are not available with other options. Ideally all options would be available irregardless of the other options ordered.

2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

This is the quietest vehicle we'v eowned. Due to health problems, I have not had this one off road yet, but inclement weather driving has convinced me it is fully capable as any smooth road SUV. Jeeps, Hummers, G-wagon, etc., are the rock and mud SUVS, and the MLs are not in that group. Getting to the spot that you really need one of those, the new ML is at the top of the list.


Best Features

Keyless Go. Finger tip shift lever. Endless ajustments to seats. Overall comfort. Confidence in driving.


Worst Features

More power, Two speed transfer gears for off-off road use. Better gas mileage.

Review

I have been driving all kinds of SUV's, but this one it has to be one of the best out there. I am very impressed with how it handles. It corners nicely, and I feel very save when I'm out with my family on the weekends.


Best Features

I love the styling and performance of the new ML500


Worst Features

So far I am very happy with the car. I can't say what improvements they should work on.

I had to have the whole engine replaced after 5 trips to the dealer for excess oil useage. Exterior lights burn out. Now major problem with transmission which will not upshift and very jerky. Probably been in the shop a total of 30+ days with other problems


Best Features

Comfortable to drive and great visibilty. Very good MPG, plus very powerful.


Worst Features

Needs major attention to quality and not just concentrate on appearance.
