2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
I had a choice between a RR sport, Infiniti QX56, and the ML. Benz was the best choice. It looked small from the outside, but once I got behind the wheel, I don't know what they did to the windshield or dash but, boy it is roomy. Thought it was a girly SUV, as most were driven by women, so I had to go with the AMG package, and I can say that was the best thing ever. It's been a week and 3 days since I've owned it and I can tell you that I am the talk of my block. AMG is the way to go if you are a guy(I have yet to see an other AMG out there), and make sure you add some 22" rims as the only exterior accessory. Now that is a Manly Macho ride. I love it. As an intro to luxury SUV, this is it.
The lighting package is WOW, so many options there. The handling is great, I have to watch myself as I get to the upper 60s in a snap. Acceleration very smooth. You have yet to remember that you are in an SUV as the comfort is to be expected out of a Mercedes.
The air suspension should have been standard. This is what I am missing.
