Pros

Great large SUV with good fuel milage. Powerful vehicle, very responsive!

Cons

Blind spots! I've adjusted and readjusted my mirrors trying to eliminate blind spots. Im still working on this issue. The engineering for the mirror design is esthetically pleasing, but the mirror is narrow, Larger mirror could have solved this issue. Very expensive to repair "IF YOU DONT DO YOUR SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE"

2011 Ml 350 Is A Proven Hidden Treasure. — It's no secret I'm a fan of Mercedes Benz, Mercedes was the 1st to produce a quality automobile and they have continued to improve on through out their history. 2011 ML 350 is a example of a diamond in the rough starting to take shape and shine. Mercedes has taken a lot of heat for early generations of the M- Class SUV's. Rightly so! they had more problems then I one legged man in a kicking contest! thats the clean version of the joke. Transmission, Power Steering, electrical ect.... the list is long so the bourbon is strong. I've been watching the professional reviews, then reading the user blog reviews and they were not matching up! So I waited until they got most of the bugs out. 2012 I checked on the 10's and 11's, many of the problems had been resolved still a few bugs, a few design flaws that you wouldn't expect from Mercedes engineering! like mold getting in the AC system? anyway I still waited a bit longer because I have a rule about not over paying for something I like, and I like the 2011 ML 350! Fast forward to 2015 4 yrs old now past the terrible 2's! Just getting ripe for a second owner, so I pluck one from the preowned certified vine. Not the base model, something with a few extras and driven on the left coast. I'm looking for Pampered, non corrosive and maintained. As soon as test drove this car I knew I was buying it! It has all the power of a race car and the comfort of a Rolls Royce. Fuel Milage is fantastic for a large SUV. Truck is very large and rear seat flips down for extra storage space if needed. I'm not going to get into the vehicle specs because most people who buy this car are more concerned if its safe, reliable, and meets the family needs! YES,YES and YES!

Mercedes Ml350 4matic — Love driving this car! Sporty and safe for my family. The 4matic makes living in Minnesota a breeze! Heated seats are a must have for our never ending winters. Love the power this vehicle has, while still providing good gas mileage.

Pros

Safe, comfortable and decent fuel economy. Particularly like the mBrace in car safety and convenience telematics - vehicle and travel information, mechanical or roadside assistance, emergency notification of airbag deployment.

Cons

Limited cargo space - had to supplement with cargo box on roof rails for longer trips. Infotainment system is dated compared to current offerings for navigation, audio and Internet apps.

Excellent Safe, Family Transportation. Quality Feel And Ride. — Likes: the quality feel of ride and handling. Feels like your in a luxury, mid sized tank. Very safe family transportation. Quality materials used throughout interior. Attention to detail inside and out. Amazing safety features. Dislikes: Limited cargo space for long trips and full compliment of luggage. 20" wheels and low profile tires don't provide the most cushioned ride, and softer rubber compound doesn't provide high mileage before needing replacement. Dated telematics and infotainment.

Nice, Comfortable, Safe Luxury, 5-passenger Suv. — Safe, comfortable and luxurious. Average fuel economy even with 3.5l 6-cyl. Sport package and wheels are sharp (20") but take away rom ride comfort. Low sidewalls contribute to harsher ride. Not worth it. Would rather have the ride comfort. Look for one with the lighting package and leather interior. Ventilated seats would be cool too (pun intended). Can't beat MB for quality construction, engineering and MANY safety features. Can't think of a safer SUV for the family. Last year of this body style, but way more reliable than the new style introduced in 2012.

Pros

This is a beautiful car! The best car I have ever owned and the most reliable Mercedes I have ever owned. This ML 350 4Matic handles like a smaller vehicle and has exceptional power from the V6. As you would expect from a Mercedes it is solid, quiet and powerful. Its reliability is very high. After 50k I have not had one issue with anything going wrong with it. Maintenance at the dealership is a bit pricey, but overall I have no complaints. Its styling is very nice as well.

Cons

Contact with M-Brace service representatives is noisy through the in car speaker system, but this is so minor I feel bad even complaining about it.

2011 Mercedes Ml350 4matic — The style of this SUV is excellent and even though its a few years old now I still get compliments all the time about its looks. Of course it helps to always keep her clean and shiny. Fit and finish is typical for Mercedes and is above par. Quality of construction and materials is evident in the vehicle. And performance is very good for the 3.5L V6. The all wheel drive 4Matic is very sturdy and planted on the road. I have just completed the 60k service and received a clean bill of health for my ML350 4Matic. The service included the usual C service at this point in time and the addition of two fluid changes... brakes and power steering. I did actually have the first problem with the vehicle... again very minor. The switch for the sunroof would hang up in the pulled position but could easily be pushed back in. Mercedes found this to be covered under my extended warranty that I purchased when I bought the vehicle... so no charge! I love when that happens! Again, I could not be happier with this vehicle. I'm a car guy and I like a lot of the cars I have owned but this car I love!

Excellent Condition/ Low Mileage — This car is in excellent condition with low mileage. It has great safety features and safety reviews. It rides well and has super power when needed. A trailer coupling is in place, which we never used. The pull screen in the cargo area adds extra security and it can also be removed when tall items need to be transported.
