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