2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
We drove our new ML-350 from Florida to Oregon and back for 8,000 miles only a month after purchasing it. It handled beautifully in the desert, in the mountains at 9,000 feet and in snow in Nevada. Then we returned home to see a poor rating on the M-class published by Consumer Reports. Unbelievable! We have lost immense respect for CR for a long, long time. And we love our ML-350.
Comfort, driving performance, and safety.
One has to be careful pulling heavy articles from the back end because there is no protection for the painted surface at the back end.
