MB just builds 'em better
By jeffreid on


2013 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


My wife and I traded a 2008 E350 for a 2011 RX450h when our first child came along for the ease of getting a carseat and a stroller in and out. I had assumed that the Lexus was going to have the same solid feel as a Mercedes-Benz due to it's very high regard within the auto industry. While the Lexus is a fine auto, there is no substitute (in this price range) for the solid build quality and the road holding ability of a Mercedes. Before I got out of the dealer's lot, I could feel the difference with the ML. This vehicle just feels so much more substantial than the Lexus in every way. When paying $50k+, I want to feel the vehicle is built like a tank, with the ML that's what you get

Favorite Features

The weight of the doors Super silky steering The harmon/kardon sound system The way that the vehicle feels like it owns the highway The ambient interior lighting (sounds silly, but after a little while, it's really a nice touch) Feels like you really bought a solid car

Suggested Improvements

I really expected to have ventilated seats in a 2013 MB SUV. This is available as a special order, so they do make them, why not just package that with the heated seats? If a Nissan Maxima has it, why not a ML? Larger standard wheels/tires would also be a good idea. Would look a little better. The AMG wheels are available though if that is a huge problem for someone.
