2008 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


As the owner of three ML's since 1998, currently a 2005 Special Edition, I went into my local dealer today to test drive a new one. I love the exterior styling and wanted to love the interior but was very disappointed by everything. The gearshift on the steering column - what were they thinking? And the MBTec standard fake leather is ridiculous on a supposed luxury car. Inside much cheaper looking overall. So my love affair with MLs is coming to an end. My heart is considering buying the one I have now, but my head is telling my to give serious consideration to the Acura MDX I test drove yesterday - don't care much for the look but it's all around higher rated and a better value. I'm sad.

Exterior styling

Worst Features

Put gearshift back in center console, leather should be standard on any Mercedes, less plastic in interior - very cheap looking.
