Truly best money I believe that was spent.

The exterior interior looks brand new. The black leather seats outstanding. The wife fell in love with it the first time we saw it went home talked about it and it is now in our garage could not be more happier.


A lot of car for $10k

I love the ML500. A 2006-2007 model sells for around $9-10k. They are comfortable, powerful cars with enough creature comforts for long trips and as a daily driver.


Love this model

At its original new car price, it was a good deal for the bang. MB luxury, styling, comfort and security at a reasonable price. Power to spare, the right balance of size and power. It doesn't quit either. Keep it properly serviced and you may never need a new car again. Today's replacement is overpriced, but still a beauty with even more safety features available. Truly an excellent MB model to own used or new.



Had this vehicle for over 5 years very reliable so relaiable that is being passed down to our Daughther who not only learned how to drive in it but has also named it SOFIA lol great comfortable and a very nice ride.


Good looking and reliable too...Sporty..

We are really enjoying this little car...so much !!!! We took it to the beach with our white lab...everyone had plenty of room..


What I was looking for

I got a great price on this car paid cash for it, nice in size, roomie love the color. Only problem is the fuse blew out that messed with the radio. Other than that I love this car


Maintenance nightmare and liability

Bought it used with 75,000 miles. After 4 years and 110,000 miles dumped it. Constant failures and check engine light illuminating. Replaced battery, rear hatch mech, intake manifold, spark plugs, serious transmission liability. Check for balance shaft issue. You will spend a lot of money to keep this car running... one problem after another. The best or nothing.... nothing is a better than the liability of owning this car.


Great Car

I've had this car since 2009 and it's been good to us. I've just taken care of routine maintenance items and and it's been very reliable. It has good performance and a great all wheel drive system. The interior is very roomy and comfortable. The exterior is solid!


2006 MB ML500

Where do I start? Bought the car used from the original owner with 60,000 miles. It is by far the best car I have ever owned- from style and comfort to reliability. Only downside to it is the poor fuel economy. I average 16MPG betw/ hwy and city driving. Not bad for a V-8 though.


Problems Galore!!

this vehicle has been a headache since I purchased. with within 20,000 miles and 18 months i have spent over 8000 on repairs. from fuse box, transmission, power lift gate, air suspension, bearings, 4 wheel drive box, sensors and compressor.. btw the 06 ML350 had 53000 miles at purchase.
