AWD- comfort, safety, Great family vehicle

Cons

Repair, maintenance, and fuel costs not inexpensive.

Love This Car. — Performance: slow on acceleration, handles nicely, but it is SUV, so can't take turns like a sports car. Overall comfort and safety is great, like a sofa on wheels. Gas mileage is okay on highway, not great in town. And it is big enough to haul stuff, dogs and kid junk. Plus it is fun to drive.

Ml350 — Love it!!!! I've been looking for a replacement for our BMW 745Li and found this car on the internet. Very good dealership and I'm very impressed with the overall quality and ride on the highway. Love it to pieces. Thanks

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

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.

EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR THE NEGATIVES!

The gas mileage is little bit smaller than I would like.

My Mercedes Ml350 — The acceleration is amazing, you tap it and you fly forward. The Build quality is magnificent because the wood grain interior makes you feel like a king. The Cost of ownership is very cheap for this kind of car, only $650 a year. The fun factor is a 10 out of 5 because it's that much fun.

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.

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.

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...
