Rover and Beemer killer
By Wolfepack on


2009 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Have owned the Discovery and LR3 and was ready for a change. Drove the Ranger Rover Sport, X5 and ML350. Simply no comparison. The Benz is by far the best combination of luxury, performance, safety and styling for the money. We are completely blown away by the driving characteristics and features of this vehicle. It is light years ahead of its predecesor, the ML320, which was a stubby, truck-based abomination. This thing is an E-class with some ride height and storage space. If you're considering an SUV in this price range, you must drive this car. My only complaints are the position of the cruise control stalk and the learning curve on all the features. Gas mileage is as bad as the Rover.

Best Features

Handling, feel, braking, transmission, paddle shifters, power lift-gate, sound system, blue-tooth, driving position, styling, 19" rims, in-cabin silence

Worst Features

Re-locate cruise control stalk, add a right-of-steering-wheel stalk for wipers (current left stalk has turn signal, front/rear wipers and washers - too much for one stalk), remove P-R-N-D stalk and allow paddle shifters to select these, gas cap is too touchy and can set off check engine light
