2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Previously owned a CLK320, the ML handling is of course not as quick as a tiny CLK, (I guess a small car will beat a large car every time in the curves) however it feels more luxurious and has plenty of power. Gas mileage is one third less than the CLK, seems like I'm putting gas in it constantly. Best car I ever owned but has more quality issues that the CLK. Hood was not on properly. rug on passenger side not under door frame properly. gas cover came off while I was just washing the car. Little things were problems.
Auto tailgate is a must. It's a great feature.
Mercedes still needs to work on build quality and reliability.
