Love the ML, hate the expenses
By flaML320CDI on


2007 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


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).

Best Features

Mileage - never under 26 often 700 miles per tank. Can get over 30 sometimes. Diesel easier to find than when purchased. Tight turning radius, smooth & quiet. Comfortable for long trips. Smoky Mtns are no challenge for this SUV! Dealer loaner cars & service hours.

Worst Features

Longer warranty on transmission. Reasonable pricing on maintenance. Getting parts from Germany twice. I've had Dealers' loaner cars probably 4 weeks, longest was over a 2 week period once.
