Not for this BMW lover
By boop on


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


First: sloppy tranny. The gear changes are very jumpy and noticable by passengers. On hill, I can floor the accelerator and get little to no power. The dealership, saw it twice, & states the tranny is fine. Take your foot off the gas and it downshifts noticibly, all by itself. It does not hold tight curves or the road on bumpy surfaces, very scary. Drives like an expensive Blazer! The Nav system is one of the most complicated I have seen. This is no X5I Question the skills of anyone calling him/herself an avid driver, if they say they like this vehicle. There is one positive, It is sending me right back to the wonderful skilled machinery of BMW for the rest of my life

Best Features

It is a very comfortable seat.

Worst Features

Tighten up the stearing. Get a bigger tranny...or fix it. I don't know...copy BMW... then you'll have a winner. Get rid of that press button nav system.
