Review

When you step on the pedal you go! the best driving SUV i have ever been in, handles like a large sedan, and look beautiful. Wouldn't trade this for anything. Maintenance is cheap of you do it yourself. German cars are very intuitive to dissect and rebuild. Love it!

Review

This truck has it all! Power, beauty, luxury, and speed. Driving this truck in city driving has no comparison to driving it on the highway. Living in Florida I rarely had the opportunity to take it up hills but when I took it on a trip to NY it was excellent. Taking turns and going uphills have never been better. Just love this vehicle in so many ways and plan to keep it till the end.


Favorite Features

The speed, the look, the quality. Unmatched by others in its class.


Suggested Improvements

Would be nice if it had a cup holder but I understand it was not designed s a family vehicle. Its only my husband and myself that drive it. Me more than him. :)

Review

We have owned our ML55 for over 3 years. Lots of plastic replacement. Idiot lights come on when driving; turn engine off and back on and they disappear. It's very hard to keep aligned. Great engine and tranny! Rides like a Wrangler with stock KYB shocks. It was a rush job to market to be sure but with some tweaking can be a lot more fun to drive and less costly to maintain then stock.


Favorite Features

Engine power is smooth. Incredibly smooth and quiet. The 5 speed automatic is dreamy!


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the plastic and add real wood. Improve the ride by getting rid of the KYB's in favor of Bilstein shocks. Get rid of the soft brakes and rotors.

Review

Complaints about the cupholder location, plastic in the cockpit, etc., - I just don't get them. The stereo system is so-so. Benz should put in a better quality system and speakers. This vehicle is functional, damn good looking, and FAST! RAW horsepower and the handling is excellent for an SUV. Very little tilt in the corners; steering is sharp and accurate. Ours also has the special, red AMG brakes. The brakes and rotors on these vehicles have an average life of 20k. Local cost is about $850 at an independent. The ML55 ride is expectedly stiff. You will feel the bumps especially on rough, country roads but better than the BMW's.


Favorite Features

AMG package, i.e. appearance, handling, POWER. GPS. The AMG seats are very comfortable and hold you in without being too snug. Visibility is very good in the vehicle as well. The folding rearview mirrors is an excellent feature. HVAC system is excellent.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality stereo and speakers. The toggle button for the GPS system is poorly located but you will get used to it.
