buying used if you find the one you like that has been taken care of makes a lot of sense. Mine was 2 years old, 23,900 miles and looks and drives showroom new, but i only paid $36,900 for a car that was over $55,000 when it first sold.
Terrible ride quality- rides like a stone! Terrible seats- firm and not comfortable! Terrible off-road- large wheel and thin tires make for a scary off road situation! Good acceleration and breaking. Mercedes has lost their way with their ML suv. The suspension clatters and bangs over every crack on the road! The transmission shifts abrubtly all of the time and with the large wheels and thin tires it is terrible off road! The seats are very uncomfortable. The only pros I can speak of as an owner are the reliability
I have loved this car from the minute I got it. Love the handling, safety and sense of protection that I have driving this vehicle. My only, only problem is lack of a remote starter in the cold winter months. I would love to enter a nice, warm cozy car. Perhaps this is an option but since I leased I didn't want to have one installed and fiddle with the electric components of the car.
