2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
I had a 1999, then a 2002 ML 320. We set our hopes too high for the 2006. So far we have been less than satisfied. It has been the shop for erratic transmission shifting in stop and go traffic, and the transmission is noisy when shifting into park, reverse etc. Lots of plastic, you can see the Chrysler influence. No additional storage under seats. On the open road, the ride is smooth and more quiet than previous models. Hope they figure it out because the overall design is great. I should have kept the the '02 at least until they worked out the kinks. Although, we may have a lemon on our hands.
Sound system is fantastic. Highway noise is at a minimum. Love the satellite radio. Great acceleration
Quiet down the transmission shifting noise. Offer a cargo cover without having to buy the organizer package. New touch screen navigation. Make the power liftgate a standard feature
