- Very good fuel economy as compared to my Chevrolet 2500 HD Crew Cab!
- Rougher ride should be expected, it is not a sedan or coupe. Best ride in it's class!
My wife and I are Realtors and drive throughout all of California. The ML 500 meets all the driving challanges that "The Golden State" can dish out. You name it steep hills,mud, sand, snow, floods, bumper to bumper traffic,extreme heat, and cold. The Mercedes Benz ML 500 provides us with comfort and safety whenever we go out to serve our clients.
We drive our vehicles hard and we expect our vehicles to perform. In exchange we make certain that our vehicles are mechanically well maintained using the proper fluids that Daimler Benz recommends. With that in mind we have only taken the vehicle in only four times for service other than fluid maintenance. We took it in for new brakes, a transmission gasket leak, and twice for the over utilized navigation system. Our ML 500 has approximately 40,000 miles and we are quite happy with it performance,style, and safety. Overall, this vehicle is worth every cent you pay for it . I would only reccommend the vehicle for four people to ride at any one time to be comfortable (anymore would be torture). If you need a lot of room for more than that I would suggest a van. I guess this the price for being "cool". This vehicle is perfect for the professional and his/her familiy not to exceede four. You can take it anywhere and not have the stigma of a van or station wagon. So, go for it! Open the sunroof and crank up the Bose Sound System, it is an awesome vehicle. Maybe that's why we have owned over 5 Mercedes Benz. They are just well built vehicles that perform!
