My 2500 mile report

Quality of workmanship seems on par with expected from MBZ, though I did have some initial reservations from 2004 and 2005 owner reviews. This SUV is very comfortable, handles and has the power of a sports car, and averages over 25MPG so far! I opted for the AMG pkg, P02, HID's, NAV, wood steering wheel and hitch (for bike rack). My wife has an E320CDI, and we love them both! I have owned many Mercedes,Porsches and Jags, but this ML is my favorite. It's really a pleasure to drive. Hey, maybe it doesn't park itself, but a man likes to do some things himself anyway! If Mercedes has a nemises, it would be electronics. The Command System is complicated, and takes some time and study to master.

Great car, not much to whine about. Exterior still looks great with regular care & good wax. However, at 3.5 yrs (no abusive driving) 78,000 miles transmission had to be replaced (no repair options) @ over $7,500. Changing headlight bulb $150 vs. $50 for local mechanic. Basic oil changes @ dealer $150+ on A maint, usually $500+ on B maint. Like a inkjet printer, it appears most of the profits come after the sale. Saved $$$$ with local tire store vs. dealer, oil changes also at the Jiffy Lube (just more than usual for Mobil 1).

One Great ML 500

One great SUV. My husband and I had the 2004 ML350 for about a year. My husband was pleased with the ML350 stating it was a truck and was suppose to drive like a truck. My opinion was a little different, I hated everything about the ML350. Well..whenever the 2006 ML came out we went to the dealership to test drive. My husband was in shock with how different the ride. Of course, I was sold after riding for a block. We purchased the ML500 and we are in love with the ride, sleak style, comforts in seating space, the great speed on the highway and much, much more.

We bought this ML320 CDI used 7 years ago, and it has proven to be one of the better cars we've ever owned, especially over 80,000 miles of ownership. Fuel economy and range I calculate manually by always filling the tank and recording the miles. I've used fueleconomy.gov to track my mileage which averages 26.2MPG, with as much as 29, when I'm not driving 80MPH. We've used this vehicle to make multiple highway trips to and from MN from AZ and CA annually. An excellent highway cruiser, we've been 700+ miles between stops. The torque, power, drivability and fuel economy of this powertrain is amazing. I do much of my own servicing, including the oil cooler seal repair as well as regular transmission services too! Much of the engine oil leakage issues on these earlier OM642s comes from the intake seal on the turbo. Properly cared for, which isn't much, they don't leak. We did upgrade the suspension to bilstien B6s which stiffened the ride a bit, but has proven to be a huge improvement in handling over the OEM shocks and struts. The interior is nearly indestructible, no glitchy button or nob fails, seats still look new and clean up nicely after even the most abusive use. Fit and finish have remained tight, no funky rattles or squeaks as it has aged. The seats are amazingly comfortable over extreme distances as well, and the HVAC keeps the cabin very comfortable at any outside temperature. The 4-Matic has been flawless, and the mechanical reliability the same, proper servicing helps make that happen! My only disappointment comes from the way the MLs consume tires. I run Continental CrossContact LX20s that are lucky to go 30k miles. Rotation is a must or 30k number would be greatly reduced. They always wear nicely, but quickly in my opinion. According to my favorite shop, this is an ML issue across the line. I'd buy the 2007 ML320 CDI again without a second thought! Upgrade coming soon, 2016 GL350 BlueTec!

A pretty good vehicle

Recently purchased a new CDI ML. Interior is great, as qulaity workmanship stands out. Diesel is quiet, capable, and seems initially reliable. The outside could look a little more modern, but I enjoy it looks (we were comparing the new Acura MDX and ML). Ride is supple and sure-footed, with the all-wheel-drive. My only bark about the vehicle is the navigation. I was spoiled with the Acura's, as you say "Find the nearest..." and it's spot-on. With the Merc, not so. I couldn't find many local places like Wal-Mart, which was seriously disappointing in a $50K vehicle. This is seriously something Mercedes needs to improve. Also, if you opt for NAV, include voice-activation. Overall, a great car.
