#1
Has what I needed.
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Styling, handling, acceleration, 24mpg. in town, 28+ hwy., ride comfort and visibility.
Passengers cannot believe that we have a diesel engine.
Cons: Navigation in the voice mode does not recognize mine or my wife's voice and sure can give some odd responses.
Navigation could be made much easier. Overall: Overall very pleased with this vehicle. Quality is better than our previous E350 sedan and more fun to drive...

So for 60k I can't get a radio that works? Really?
Source: Edmunds

...We replaced our 08 ML. The fit and finish are as expected, the performance for a 6cyl is good, but...I have a 2011 Jeep Compass (I won't spend the money.
It's a car, it's not a fashion statement) and the radio will quickly connect my phone through bluetooth for complete hands free.
It downloads my contacts, it has voice recognition, it streams music from my micro sd card, and it streams music from my internet connections(pandora, slacker etc).
The Merc won't do it. My wifes phone is the same as mine.
Now while the average user may not appreciate this. When you pay 3x for a...

Outstanding Vehicle
Source: Edmunds

...Traded in the GLK350 for this ML350. Although the GLK was a great vehicle, the ML affords me more space and is much more comfortable.
Can't say enough about this vehicle and recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable SUV.
For those who worry about fuel consumption, averaging 24 MPG in mixed driving and expect to do better. Very quite inside and very classy inside and out. Try it, you'll like it!!...

#4
New and Improved M class
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: New interior Styling new design, power Cons: Not the gas mileage advertised at all. Some blind spots. Overall: Mercedes did a great job with this. It is much improved over the 2011 M class...

What an amazing SUV
Source: Edmunds

...This will be my third ML. Having owned 2002 and 2004 versions, I was very disappointed with the second generation ML and strayed from the MB brand for a few years.
Now comes the 2012 which is the third generation and it totally blows away all previous models...

I Love My Car And I Will Likely Buy A New One!
Source: CarGurus

...I have had this car for a about a year and a half with 109000 miles currently and no maintenance issues.
I change the oil regularly and had an alignment and new tires, thats about it.
It handles well and feels very safe for my baby to ride in.
There are like 12 airbags and it has quite a spacious interior.
The obvious cons are that the electronics are a bit
outdated and the walnut trim as well but it is a very good looking vehicle (orion blue with grey leather) and I will likely have this for many years or buy a new one!...

#7
Extremely unreliable
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: nice interior Cons: extremely unreliable, flimsy system,
anything can break any time and put driver in an unsafe position,
spend more time in service than on the road Overall: This is not really a car, it is mostly an object not to be moved in anyway or something will break.
Such a poorly made vehicle except for the interior...

#8
Wow!! Great SUV!! Very Happy!!
Source: Edmunds

...My last car was a Cayenne V6. I like the new ML much better.
I can't say enough about every aspect of the car and the great dealer, MB of North Olmstead Ohio. You should be willing to travel a long long way to do business with these guys...

#9

Source: Cars.com

..."This car is very comfortable and pretty good on gas mileage!
Runs great and very safe!Amazing features in this car, automatic everything, very roomy, an third row seating makes it a very convenient vehicle for my daughter and her friends!
Also, Mercedes run a long time and for many, many miles! The beat car by far that I've ever owned!"...

I Love my Mercedes-Benz ML350
Source: Cars.com

..."I have been driving a Porsche Cayenne and a BMW X-5, and just traded in the X5 for a new Mercedes-Benz ML350.
The other cars were essentially performance-oriented, while the Mercedes is unabashedly comfort-oriented.
I, as an older man, am equally unabashedly please with the comfort. My next car will also more than likely be a Mercedes-Benz!"...
