2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
Overall, a very nice vehicle. Highly desirable, fun to drive, and way smooth looks. Have gotten many compliments and requests to "take a peek" inside. This is my second Benz and I'm keeping this one for the long haul. Stable and solid ride. Good acceleration. Feel very safe whether I'm in agressive, heavy traffic or bad weather.
Comfy seats on long trips. Great climate control system. Keyless entry w/touch start (and you cannot lock yourself out). Like the Nav system despite its shortcomings. 4WD, ABS and many well thought out safety features were primary considerations for this purchase.
Please, give us an updated, user friendly Nav. system. Look to the Japanese if you can't figure it out. The ML's system is way too fussy and lacks basic common-sense features. Transmission can be jerky and shouldn't be in a vehicle of this caliber. What's up with the occaisonal squishy brakes?
