We bought the diesel variant of the ML for the MPG and torque ratings. We have been very happy with power and the MPG. It is a turbo diesel so I knew to expect the 1-2 second lag when hitting the gas but love the punch once the power hits. I have been lucky not to experience any reliability or odd little noise issues and am thank full for that.
Ride height, backup camera, power, sound system, interior appearence, over all sense that everything was well thought out before being implemented
1-Add a touch screen to the Navi but keep the buttons too 2-Add a socket wrench to the spare tire tools as I spent 30 minutes with the lug wrench and the scissor jack making a half twist them resetting the wrench for the next turn 3-I am a big guy and the seat belt rubs against the center console
