2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
Improved look of the vehicle over the previous models. The handling is great especially in difficult weather. Inside, enjoy lumbar support, seats, and spacious cargo. Great power with the V8 in our hilly community both freeways and city drives. Finally feeling safe and comfortable during commutes. Excellent car. Needs some cosmetic work inside. Too much plastic but if you choose less options, you get what you pay for.
The drive is great. Comfortable for adult passengers. Enjoy three level heated seats, lumbar support, controlled speed when driving down steep hills, keeps the work off the brakes. Rain delay is a treat.
Display panel often obscured by the steering wheel, speeds, time, etc. Navigation really needs to be updated especially when spending so much for the option. Occassional rough transmission speed changes but not reported when taken in for service B checkup. Gas mileage attrocious but expected.
