We Love It So Much We're Buying Another One. — The styling perfect for us...not flashly but solid. The inside is luxurious and the is handling and braking make us feel safe on the highway. We can comfortably carry our passengers and their luggage. It's an all around winner!

Pros

High Spec

Cons

Really Big, Hard to park in city centers

75

If You Can Find A Cheap One It's Pretty Good — Its good for £20,000 as it has; leather seats, nav, 5 seats, multi disc changer, electric heated front seats and heated rear seats. Mainly used for towing caravan. Usually around 34-40mpg on motorways and around 27-34mpg in the middle of town. Good car and well worth it

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

Really stands out, beautifully sculpted, powerful and nimble for an SUV.

Cons

Maintenance is costly.

Unparalleled Design. — After two years of owning this car, it still looks and runs as if new. Acceleration is powerful and the car handles like a sports car (especially with the use of the steering wheel mounted sheedshift paddles used to switch through the seven gears of the car). The interior is beautifully designed and still looks very fresh. The 302hp engine is very powerful and the car itself is nimble. Mercedes build quality is never the best though, and I have had to make numerous serice appointments for disfunctional head/taillamps and minor problems.

Pros

Excellent car. Very quiet. Lots of power.Very responsive. Full time AWD, great car for snow and bad weather. Lot of room and cargo space. Mercedes legendary quality and reliability

Cons

Fair repair cost as I used a Mercedes dealership. I followed the recommended maintenance plan and it worked well for me. Timley oil changes and service and tire rotation, saved me money in the long run.  Doesn't have 3rd row seat and I need a 3rd row, that's the reason for me to sell the car.

Great Suv. Excellent All Weather Car. — Very quiet and extremely comfortable ride. Lots of power and very good gas mileage with this V8. AWD is very handy for the long Chicago cold/snow weather. Great everyday Car for work commute and long summer family trips with cargo.

Pros

compared to the ML350, the power is much better, the engine is more relaxed and doesnt need to be beat on to reach the wanted speed, interior layout is comforting and compared to a Jeep Commander limited, i feel it is a more solid SUV.  I like the Down Speed Regulator switch where it controls the speed of the SUV when going down hill so you can maintain control, seat warmers work amazing.

Cons

Fuel can become costy if you drive within the city a lot, unlike the Jeep commander, you can not switch to 4low, you only have mountain mode.  It has a phone setup but phone is optional, could use some more room for back seats.

Comfy Suv — I like what i wrote about in the pros section and i dislike what is in my cons section. I could add that you deffinetly get MB status. I parked free at hotels because they are MB supporters it made me feel special.

The V8 Engine Makes A More Beefier Vehicle Over All. — I'm not a big fan of gas guzzlers, but this vehicle makes it worth its mpg. With the dirivng comfort and features, it makes family trips more enjoyable. Now, if only we can get some jet skis for this car to haul...

Sassy Car — Love my sassy little benzo... It's almost time to go car shopping again and I know I will just get the same car but a new model...maybe a different color combo... Drives like a sports car but has space so I can fit my girlfriends, lots of shopping bags, and my ridiculously good looking dog all in it at the same time :)

Great Suv! — Great truck, I like the all wheel drive. Wish it had running boards and 19" stock rims instead of 17". With an HID kit this thing is beautiful at night. AUTO TRUNK, so much help to me as a musician!
