2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
This model is much improved over the 2004 ML350 that I previously owned. This is my 5th ML and is far superior to previous models.
The improved ride, sleeker design, and improved gas mileage makes this an excellent choice. Currently getting 20mpg in town and 25-26mpg on the road.
Elimination of the free maintenance for the first 50,000 miles was quite a shock. I have been trading when the car approached 50,000 miles. I am currently rethinking this option. I may even look to a different brand of auto.
