Vehicle2008 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
ReviewI bought this car new in October 2007. I have general dislikes about this vehicle and the cost of ownership. First, the SUV has 37k miles on it and I am on my 3rd set of tires at $1100 per set (including mounting and balancing). MBUSA says it's due to the weight of the vehicle and that the tires available are soft (whatever you do DO NOT buy Continental 4X4 contacts for this car).
Second, there are many, many little things that for a MB are un acceptable like, front defroster only has one setting, which is high, then you need to play the on/off game with it when the windows fog up, the radio does not display the song or artist, the alarm makes no audio sound to indicate it is alarmed, ect
Best FeaturesGoof performance Exterior styling Storage space
Worst FeaturesChange settings for front defroster Have radio display artist and title Have alarm have the ability to have an audio sound to indicate the vehicle is secured Full size spare tire Paint that doesn't scratch if you look at it wrong Changing front light bulbs requires an entire free day

I know it's an old post, but it's a misinformed old post that people can still see, so....... "Second, there are many, many little things that for a MB are un acceptable like, front defroster only has one setting, which is high, then you need to play the on/off game with it when the windows fog up" If you had read your owners manual you would have found that is the "rapid defrost" setting. It gives you max temp, max air and a/c compressor (to dry the air) all with one button. If you just turn the far right dial (the nozzle adjust) to the 12 o'clock position, the automatic temperature and fan stay where it's set, it just changes where the air goes.Report it
