Its a nice car but the check engine light has come on within a day of me having it going to have it looked at not sure what the issue could be it wasnt on when I pick the vehicle up.

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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love this vehicle

Cons: I wish mechanics would not be afraid to work on this vehicle and would not charge soooo much to work on them

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Still peppy after all these years.  Decent cargo space.

Cons: Electrical is an ongoing problem.

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...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Solid German hauler -- reliable and unstoppable (in snow)

Cons: Expensive and high maintenance costs

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great heavy car, performs great in snow.

Cons: A little heavy on repairs

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent handling and 4x4 capability’s

Cons: Gas Gasler

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: 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).

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

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

Pros: 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.
