I Love This Ride — im not sure what I dislike. it is excellent everything about it is just fun. Well, I guess it doesnt get great gas mileage but this is an SUV and we dont expect it to be like a smaller engine. I love it in snow rides

Pros

Still peppy after all these years.  Decent cargo space.

Cons

Electrical is an ongoing problem.

Overpriced — Electrical is an ongoing problem. Granted it's 13 years old but less than 100k miles. Seems like some sensor or solenoid goes out every 2-3 months. Still has decent acceleration. Good but not great cargo space. Bad mileage like most SUVs.

Satisfied The Wife — As my wife's vehicle (she liked having the MB star status) she was happy using the ML for everyday and we saddled it up for the kids on the weekends -- believe this one may have been made in Alabama or Mexico... would need AMG if ventured to MB again...

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.

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

This ML has been very reliable for me and I continue to work hard to keep her in top shape.

Cons

Internal build quality was bad on all this era of Mercedes but especially those built here in the U.S. as the ML's are.

Unique Ml — I have owned this since 2005 and have made continued improvements. It rides on 20" OZ rims made in Italy, has upgraded brakes, rotors, shocks, anti-roll bars and more. A hood scoop feeds an inter-cooler which increases horse power. This particular ML is fairly customized in relation to the standard version.

Car Looks much ahead of its time. Very comfortable and smooth ride. Handling feels sporty.

Cons

The gas mileage is low but that has to be the only flaw.

Fast, Reliable, And Enjoyable Suv — I like the front look of the car. Also the sound system is very nice. The performance is amazing and feels very fast. Feels high up and in control. This was a weekend car. Should last forever. Amg made it very nice.

Powerful, Spacious, Reliable, Pleasure To Drive — I am an original owner, and even thought there were a few issues with it in the first five years of ownership, it was all fixed under warranty, and it's been a great commute and family car. We purchased another, smaller SUV, and kept this one as a third car, but we are not using it at all now, so we decided to let it go. It is a terrific car.

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
