2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
The car is truly beautiful from the outside and wonderful to drive. You have to get the V8. There is probably only 1 mpg difference but a huge difference in power. The only thing is that the inside is soooooo simple. The interior is ok but c'mon, Mercedes really hasn't changed anything on the inside in 100 years. Old buttons, mediocre nav. It makes you wonder about the price when far-inferior cars look amazing on the inside in comparison. Little leg room in the back. Mercedes is a driving machine, yes. But for $60,000- plus (with AMG), I want my car's interior looking a little better than a Honda... don't you think?
The drive is beautiful. The engine and handling are a dream to drive.
