I'm not a tree hugger
Pros: Easy to drive
Cons: I have to pay for the Adblue. MB Service is a ripoff.Blutec is the way to go. Quiet diesel, good power, no exhaust fumes destroying our lungs. Benz is a good looking classy SUV thatyour never ashamed to hand the keys to the valet at Bev Hills best eateries.
Wow what a vehicle
Pros: The mpg
Cons: NothingThis is a beautiful--well thought out and designed vehicle. The throttle is so smooth, you really know you are in a world class car. The ride is also smooth--drivers beware, it feels like you are going 50 when you are at 75. It's quiet with a fantastic sound system. Sirius is great--CDs are the best. All this and get 28 mpg average. No diesel smell, even with a cold start. Outside the car you can hear a muffled diesel purr. We got the Distronic also, works fantastic. Great Car
Pros: I love the black with black leather interior and the wood grain
Cons: The black brake dust that constantly gets on my front rims
Advice: New or used I promise youActually I own a 2004 ML350 and I love it. It's spacious and sexy. My husband and I were on our way home when the tire blew we were moving at around 60 mph. The tire did $3000 damage to the driver rear end. It should have flipped or swerved but I'll tell you my ML handled it superbly and I am greatful. I don't want to drive anything else. Im spoiled rotten now!
Cons: Rear seating
Advice: Sit in the back seats to determine if tolerable for you and your passengersHandling was extremely responsive, excellant acceleration, interior cabin layout well done. Rear seating very cramped, smallish storage area in the rear, however fold down seating for a flat surface was adequate for storage of shopping items. Financing currently offered was most attractive, with Mercedes Benz making the first two (2) payments, with 1.9% finance rate for the following sixty four (64) months, no money down, taxes and license fees included in the purchase price-what a deal!!!!
Pros: diesel performance
Cons: there isn't anything i don't like
Advice: purchase all the optionsi've got 4,000 miles on a GL350 Bluetec. this is the most satisfying auto purchase since my 1966 corvette convertible. comfort, performance, value and appearance. This one has it all.
