Pros

Serious power! Luxury. Manual Automatic Transmission.  Great Bose system, sub-woofer underneath driver seat.  Fog lights.  Moonroof, folding mirrors, privacy rear windows.

Cons

Steering whines and it doesn't need fluid. Exhaust could have been done better and cross drilled rotors should have been included. MPG is not so great but, that's what you get when you want performance. When manually shifting, there's far too much of a lag, instead of an instant gear change.  My stereo was working in the beginning but, now it has frozen on waiting status, displayed on the screen.  I cannot figure out how to unfreeze it because it was working fine, played cd's and everything.  1 huge CON is the navigation system, an expensive cd is required to be purchased, in order for it to work.  Mine did not come with it, and if I did have it, I would not be able to listen to a music cd, if the navi cd is in, (single cd player).

Sportcar? Almost. Super Utility Vehicle.....yes! — Front bumper could have been sportier, and so could've been the exhaust note. What's weird is that the rear fender flares and bottom of the rear hatch, are fading but, nothing else on the body's paint is fading. Finding aftermarket upgrades/tuning upgrades, is not as easy as finding them for newer models. My driver seat is tearing and I am not fat but, then again, who knows if the previous owner was. The back seats and rest of the interior is exceptional.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

its fast

Cons

its too fast

Nice — Performance-big car but great acceleration. very fast and stable in the right hands. good breaking distance. the doors sometimes act funny its nothing major. the car has good looks in and out but the leather seats feel slippery. it is good on gas if you are not constantly accelerating to 100km/h in 5-6secs in city driving. service is done at the cost of a leg and a kidney. overall, all at some point must get a chance to drive a car like this or better.

Pros

drives great gets good gas mileage and is fun to drive

Cons

repairs are a little pricey, though infrequent

45

Best Suv In Its Class — this car is the most solidly built car i hav ever driven. the gas mileage is averaging over 26 mpg. it accelerates and brakes great. it handles great especially on ice. the esp makes it so you can turn without slipping much even on theslickest of ice. the one con is when it needs repairs, they are usually expensive.

Pros

it is a comfortable car and i feel like it is very study

Cons

small engine

German Cars All The Way — the acceleration is not all that great it is a big car with only a V6. the breaks work well but u have to get used to them, it also handles well and makes easy turns. it has not needed any major repairs just annual maintenance, no squeaks or rattles. i like the look of the interior...i would prefer to have another color that is darker on the outside. gas is somewhat expensive...i drive to school 4 days a week and to other places as well ans fill up every 1.5-2 weeks. the car has its moments of fun

Pros

Good power delivery, smooth ride, high riding position.

Cons

High body roll, bad brakes, seats lack support.

An Suv That Would Out Accelerate Your Golf Gti From 0-90km/h — The car's acceleration is very good from 10km/h until approximately 95km/h. The brakes are weak and fade very quickly. The car handles ok, but there is too much body roll in corners. The build quality is mediocre, the dashboard need frequent repairs: radio, airco. The exterior design was acceptable in 2001 but is now outdated. Especially the grey bumpers which fail to match the color of the car are an absolute turn off. The car is quite economic, and comfortable and quiet for long highway drives.

Overall Not Worth The Cost Of Maintenance And Poor Fuel Economy. — Good looking SUV that handles well and feels almost like a new car even after 8 years of avg mileage driving. Solid engine, however, overall a bad decision to buy: poor fuel economy and requires top grade fuel, endless problems from cheap plastic fittings that disintegrate and fall from the interior to costly repairs arising from faulty sensors, electronic and mechanical failures. Costs thousands per year to maintain through dealership.

Pros

It is a solid car on highways and feel most safe to sit in for long trips...

Cons

It is one hack of a very expensive car to maintain...

It's A Rock On Car To Drive. Just Don't Buy Any Of Them Older Than 2006 — I love my ML. However, this model before 2006 is not so much of a reliable car. It has quite a bit of electronic issues. However, the overall driving, handling and performance is still one of the best car to drive. The ML made a break thought in reliability after 2006.

Not The Best Buy — Gorgeous looks and amazing sound system, but the build quality is not up to par, the handling is atrocious, fuel consumption is through the roof, and Mercedes thought they could hide behind the badge. It didnt work. Not a good all round car.

Good Solid Mid Size Suv — Fun midsize SUV. Handles great and has plenty of get up and go. Third row seating is good for small people, lacks leg room. We spend a lot of time up in the snow and it performs great! Great solid & safe car for family.

I Like My Car — Overall, it is a good strong vehicle, I fell very safe in it and it has plenty of power. You can't win all worlds so it is expansive to maintain but other then that just a fun vehicle to drive.
