Incredibly, a Mercedes that's good value
By scatback on


2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


This is a big SUV but very light on its feet.
Good visibility, good steering and a great turning radius are all part of equation.
The backup camera is excellent, the seating position very good, the performance as good with this V6 as my XC90 Volvo was with its V8 with about 20% better MPG. Also, very quiet at speed.
The knock on Mercedes was a premium package that wasn't premium; but the premium one package now includes what most people want (except for HID headlights; shame, Mercedes!), and that makes it value for money.
Ten thousand less than an X5.
Navigation works well, but the scream you get when you press the Embrace button will make ear drums bleed.
What's up with that?

Best Features

quiet comfort with good performance and decent economy

Worst Features

The navigation system should allow voice entry of full address, like the Iphone. Instead, it interrogates you at step at a time. But the big complaint is the screeching tone every time I try to access Mercedes version of Onstar, cutely called Mbrace Onstar works great. Mbrace makes your ears bleed, and then takes you through two or three computers and operators before you talk to a human being. It's a truly stupid mistake on Mercedes part, and I hope they correct it. I've seen this complaint on a lot of websites.
