2008 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
SUV is more than we expected. Good driving experience, excellent mileage @ 30 mpg highway and 25 in town. Radio and MB tech pkg helpful. HD lights a must, XM radio and NAV work well. Seats comfortable even with MB Tex. Would definitely buy again. No problems so far in this nearly 2-year- old MB Diesel SUV. Bought the extended warranty to 100K miles.
Diesel motor, great low-end torque and good highway driver. Superb mileage for a 5K pound vehicle.
Age 5 follow up report:
SUV has remained close to flawless. Tires replaced at 42,000 with Michelins at dealership, good price. Battery replaced at 5 years. Everything works as well as it did on day 1. Mileage in diesels is dependent on speed driven. Keep this vehicle at 66-67 and get 30 mpg highway. No urea requirement is nice. Would definitely buy again, and may just hold onto it a few more years. Diesel fuel is 10% higher than regular and cheaper than premium, but mileage is 35-45% better.
