2009 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Diesel ML320 BlueTEC 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

We bought the Bluetec for the fuel economy and the exterior styling. Little did we know that it is not designed for tall or larger people. I weigh 210lbs and 5'11" tall so I am not big. It is very uncomfortable to come in and out of the driver's seat. With the seat back, my kid does not have leg room from his car seat. I move the seat forward and have to drive uncomfortably. The rear entertainment is mounted very poorly in the back that my 4 year old has bumped his head hard 3-4 times. I do not recommend it for family of 4 with kids. With the 2 car seats, it is very difficult to seat 5. THe fuel economy is averaging around 24mpg which is not bad. Diesel is sufficient for daily drive.


Best Features

Bluetec,IPOD, HD Radio, and controls. Exterior styling looks great. Ride is soft and quiet from the inside but loud from the outside going up hill. Nice cruise control.


Worst Features

Rear DVD placement. More legroom. More room to get in from the front. The garage opener is located on the mirror, should be on the visor. The keyless start is inconvenient along with the unconventional shift level. Paddles is useless. Navigational is not touchscreen with 9 digit keypad.

Review

We bought this to replace the 1998 ML320 we had for eleven years. The old one was great and gave outstanding reliability, but it was time to replace. This ML320 BlueTec is a great replacement and it has lived up to it's advertising. Great mileage and comfort with all the gadgets you would want. Very solid feel on the road with plenty of room for storage. We have other diesels in the family and this is one of the best. It is quiet and soot free with good mileage for the weight of the vehicle. On the road you don't even know it's a diesel. Fantastic improvement over the older diesels.


Best Features

Great diesel engine Solid handling on the road. Very comfortable in all conditions. Outstanding quality even down to the smallest detail.


Worst Features

Rear storage slightly smaller than our older ML. Will have to wait to judge the AdBlue maintenance. VW has a better system for clean burn.

Review

This has been a wonderful driving experience .The Diesel is very smooth and quiet and the highway milage is regularly over 28 mpg with average usually around 25 including city. The interior systems are fun and easy. The lift gate is great and at the right height to the ground and the space is more than ample.


Best Features

Diesel, Navigation, Phone


Worst Features

A tad more comfortable seating in the rear

Review

I have had this truck for around a month now and I am very impressed. It flat moves and is stable doing so. I purchased it to replace a 2002 C class MB that I loved but missed having room to haul anything. So far it's two thumbs up! Anxious to take a road trip in the next 2 months. Vegas to Denver should be a good test. Maybe a bit of off road testing hopefully. The gas millage isn't anything to write about at this point but it's only got 1000 miles on it. It feels like a Benz... That's the best part!


Best Features

Electronics in this vehicle are fantastic.


Worst Features

redesign the gas peddle.... a floor mate got under the peddle causing it to behave badly.... took it to the garage only to find that a floor mate was the cause....

Review

Purchase this since we needed something relatively large - but were very concerned about getting a gas guzzler SUV. So far, so good - this SUV is a great solution. Getting 24+ on the highway and plenty of room and comfort. No quality issues so far, but it hasn't been long - initial build quality seems outstanding.


Best Features

roominess, ride comfort, efficiency.


Worst Features

would like a sportier ride (but didn't get the air suspension), more direct steering feel like my c350 sport. could be a tad quicker from 0-15 but we're still learning to master the engine/transmission. it's not like our old ML.
