2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Terrific all around vehicle. Very reliable, as I never had to bring it in for service other than regular scheduled service.


Best Features

One of the best features is the turning radius and the ride.


Worst Features

Needs larger right side mirror, and GPS controls are cumbersome. Need improvememts on cup holders that arenn't so difficult to get the cups in.

Review

My wife drives this car day in and day out and just loves it. Previously had a 2001 ML320, this car is a huge improvement in ride and overall quality.


Best Features

Seats, turning radius, overall drive comfort.


Worst Features

Navigation system ease of use, paying $50 MB needs to include phone system, shifter on column needs to be rethought.

Review

This car's exceptional styling belies the fact that just about everything that could go wrong with it will! It regularly goes into the shop with the unexpected. Brakes lasted less than 1 year. Transmission dealybop less than 3 months. Many more repairs----all costly. Never buy this car without an extended warranty!


Best Features

Smoothness of ride.


Worst Features

This car was put on the market about a year before all the known kinks were dealt with. Shame on Mercedes!

Review

The car is truly beautiful from the outside and wonderful to drive. You have to get the V8. There is probably only 1 mpg difference but a huge difference in power. The only thing is that the inside is soooooo simple. The interior is ok but c'mon, Mercedes really hasn't changed anything on the inside in 100 years. Old buttons, mediocre nav. It makes you wonder about the price when far-inferior cars look amazing on the inside in comparison. Little leg room in the back. Mercedes is a driving machine, yes. But for $60,000- plus (with AMG), I want my car's interior looking a little better than a Honda... don't you think?


Best Features

The drive is beautiful. The engine and handling are a dream to drive.


Worst Features

Improve the interior.

Review

I recently bought this car used, with 29500 miles. I traded in a 2000 ML320 with 78000 miles, which I loved and never had a problem with. This newer model is beautiful, solid, and fun to drive. I don't like all the changes to where things are located, however - the window buttons, cup holders, gas filler, and gear shift have all been moved. I also prefer more traditional knobs to all the pushbuttons.


Best Features

Exterior style, comfortable ride, roomy interior.


Worst Features

Need cup holders in back seat. The windshield wiper stalk has too many things on it and I can't see it because it's hidden behind the steering wheel. No cargo cover. Manual is ridiculously huge.
