FAST AND SAFE

Cons

To small to be a proper SUV

Good Fast And Reliable — This car has a good V8 engine and all assesories you could wish in a car. Electrical seats, GPS,Ovenership is very cheap in Dubai ++++++Fuel are also very cheap, I use 130 Norwegian kroner to fill the tank from empty to full he he thats a laugh compared to Norway

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

Pros

Mine was the ML500, so it was the V8...power was never a problem. Big, roomy, acres of cargo space. The heated seats warmed my tucus as well as my back. Built like a tank, killed in a 45 mph t-bone collision when an old man pulled out in front of us...

Cons

Gas mileage. Gas mileage. Did I mention gas mileage? 14 city, whether driving like a race car or like my grandmother...18 highway, fully loaded, two adults and full a/c. I knew the mpg would be low, but I expected it would've been better than it was. Since it was built on a truck chasis, the ride was rough and bouncy.

Bucket List Suv — I loved just about everything on this SUV. The nav was a great feature. Six disc changer in the trunk/cargo area was a novelty, but fun. The heated seats were amazing, especially on cold mornings. It was a joy to drive.

Classy Vehicle, Best Looking Small Suv On The Road. — Powerfull V8, I luv accelerating from a light, sounds powerful too. Brakes squeal alot, tight, no rattles, great looker inside and out. Seats are good for long trips, I expected lousy gas mileage, but get 20-24 pmg on the highway, and am happy with that. I am extremely happy with the vehicle, I have put 15000 miles on it in the last 3 months.

Pros

Rated the fastest SUV

Cons

Stock radio's most used buttons are too far from the driver.

German Engineering = Good. German User Interaction Design = Bad. — Because it is an AMG, it comes with all the bells and whistles; wide body, white-face guages, all leather interior, black bird's eye maple trims, ABS, and 5 speed automatic. Plus, the 5.5 litre V8 light alloy engine gives it the power it needs that separates the ML55s from the lower end MLs. My only complaint is its stock radio/navigation that will make you roam around a city block before it gives you the correct direction.

Love It — I love everything about this car, and reccomend it to anyone. Exactly what one would expect from a Mercedes, comfort, style and great handling. The repair costs are no where near what I was warned they would be! SO happy I purchased this car!
