Much Better than 2006
By drlgu on


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


My wife had a '06 ML350 and loved the looks and how it drove; however, it was in the shop several times for power liftgate and squeaking rear suspension. Decided to trade in for 2008 with P2 package and never regretted it. The 2008 handles much better, probably due to larger wheels and tires. Bought it in June '08 and overall reliability and build quality has been excellent. The '08 also seemed to have improved on the 7sp transmission as it does not hesitate like the '06. Had opportunity to drive in 3 inches of snow and handled very well.

Best Features

Headroom, interior room, bi-xeon headlights, quietness, drives like a luxury car and not an SUV, ipod connection, rear seats fold flat, good MPG for an SUV of this size.

Worst Features

Had to pay $500 for bluetooth module, leather should be standard, rear view camera is great, but at this price point it should also have parking sensors.
