This is an awesome car

This is a very reliable car. The owner takes care of it real well and it looks like new. Drives like a dream.


Severe transmission, engine problems

The transmission, engine in the ML350s are horrible . Mercedes talks about quality, yes they ride their old legacy of good cars. But the new ones are pathetic. Will run great until 50 thousand miles until they start running into mechanical problems. Spent over $8000 in the last 4 years on repairs. Lease it, don't buy.


buyer beware

I've owned a 1998 ml-320 since 2001. I replaced the transmission at 150k. It now has 245k. . They went to a 7 speed transmission and that created a lot of problems. All the gadgets that mine does'nt have create many problems also. You can work on mine yourself with a code reader. Newer ones are more complex. I paid 29k for it in 2001 so I've got my money out of it. Mercedes were good many years ago when they were made in Germany. Will probably buy a nissan quest next.


Love it

I bought an 07 used four months ago and still love it. Comfortable, stylish, strong and fast. It's like a SUV sportscar and eats up the highway miles. Took a trip up to Montreal and my wife slept like a baby all the way up. Great car and still in love with it.



Low mileage is all you need to look for when buying a Mercedes ML350. They run forever without any problems! Keep up with regular oil changes and typical maintenance, and it doesn't have to be at a Mercedes dealership! Car-X does a GREAT job as well, for 1/2 the price, which is very affordable.



I've owned 5 ML350's and have NEVER had a problem with any of them! I change the oil every 10,000 miles, as recommended by Mercedes, have a tune up every year (not necessarily at a Mercedes dealership), and all my ML350's have run perfectly! I would NEVER buy anything else, and neither would any other Mercees owners I talk to.


A piece of... (ml 350)

I have it for 6 years,and i had several problems on the suspension(broke down 3 times),on the belt,that also broke down for 3 timesand some more problems.But,it's a very comfort car for big trips.


Liven Large!

Great vehical,Runs like a Bear on the high way,Turns heads in the city.The fit and finish of this vehical is outstanding.Make sure you get the owners manuals with it, many features at first are not ovious at first. Enjoy!


Just Perfect!

Ride, handling and performance are as good as it gets. Great looking SUV too. Comfort with premium seats with lumbar control allows for all day driving without aches or pains. Gas mileage isn't great but it is the trade off you make for all the great things this car provides. I average 15 or so around town, 20 on the highway at 70 mph.


love this car

Love, love , love this car! Am buying another one. Love it on the road, long road trips of 8-10 hrs in car are incredibly comfy, sporty, zippy fast and smooth. with all of the bells and whistles. Never a problem with it, can't wait to get my next one and the one after that. Best car and most enjoyable car I have ever had. LOVE IT! My first Merceds and now I am converted to being a forever ML350 owner.
