Go diesel!
By AgWagon on


2008 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


This is a great SUV all-around, but the diesel clinched it for me. It just makes so much sense for trucks and SUVs. Yes, it's a hair louder than a gas engine under acceleration (which is excellent, by the way, because of all that torque). But cruising is very quiet, and there's absolutely no smoke or odor, ever. Bottom line: you get the space and utility you need at a thrifty 26 mpg. Plus, you can feel good about being green with the smaller carbon footprint. Really, you've got to try one.

Best Features

Diesel motor, 7-speed transmission, navigation system, and I know it's safe.

Worst Features

Non-xenon lights don't cut it, xenons should be standard or at least a stand- alone option (instead of bundled in P2). I wish the rear window could be opened independent from the whole tailgate, which I've found to be useful in other vehicles.
