2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
The 2006 model is a giant leap over the past models. (I have previously owned a 1998 ML 320 and a 2000 ML 430.) The level of comfort, luxury and attention to detail is far better in the 2006 vehicle. I finally feel like I'm riding in a Mercedes!
Smooth and powerful engine and drivetrain. Excellent handling characteristics. Satellite radio. DVD navigation system. IPOD integration kit (beats the heck out of the FM modulator I previously had to use)
The only way to get a trailer hitch is to order one from the factory. This has to change. Now I own a $60K SUV with a 5000 lb towing capacity and no way to hook up anything
