2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Pro: Beautiful suv in and out, Good performance. Con: Expensive up keep/parts/maintenance, issues come up every few months. There're better choice out there. Buy only if it's still under warranty or some kind of extended warranty. Be warned or be ready to pay. Your choice, your money. Better choice is RX350.

Very nice ride but constant and expensive maint issues and way too many 'little' things going wrong with it. I can't recommend it - I have grown to HATE this car

Review

Do Not Purchase this vehicle. I wish I can show the receipt for this vehicle because you're better off buying a vehicle from other sources because the amount of payment for repair is not equal to owning this vehicle. I need a time machine to talk to myself of never purchasing, co-signing this vehicle because the quality is all aesthetic and each part of the vehicle is expensive with expensive "mechanics" that will siphon as much money from you as they can. Mercedes Benz seems to rely their profit from consumers paying and over paying for maintenance that should not be required. Where is the picture upload for my receipt in which these people are trying to steal money from me after purchasing these vehicles. PLEASE PLEASE BOYCOTT MERCEDES BENZ DEALERS AND MERCEDES BENZ PRODUCTS

Review

I've owned this car since new, and I've only recently had to invest serious money in repairs (after 10yrs). While the leather on the driver's seat has suffered a bit, the rest of the interior has born up well. The paint remains as new. The transmission has had intermittent issues, but those problems have mysteriously vanished. I've never had problems with the AWD system or hill-descent control, which I've used extensively. I've just had to spend $5k on myriad repairs, but when amortized over 10yrs, the cost of ownership has been acceptable. All it all, it's been one of the better cars I've owned and still looks and drives great. The driving position is very comfortable for taller drivers (I'm 6'5") and even with the driver's seat adjusted for me, the passenger behind the driver still has reasonable room. The engine has never missed a beat after 132000 miles, and the electrics are still working as new. My primary complaint has been the quality of the switchgear which is rather poor, and a twitchy left signal light that fails and recovers all on it's own. The window switches on the driver's side have repeatedly popped out and I can no longer use the sunroof due to a dodgy switch (don't like the sunroof anyway). That and I have to agree that the UI on the nav system is a bit of a pain. Overall I have to say that my main complaint is that it will be very hard to replace this car once it packs it in. The new ones are silly and far too Japanese-looking IMHO.
