Purchased As Used
I recently purchased my ML350 with 4Matic, and it is great! I had a Lexus RX350 and found it to be too small for comfort, handling was terrible, and where I live, it is as common on the streets as a Chevy pickup. After getting the ML350, it brought joy back to driving. The handling is beyond compare for an SUV. Nice tight suspension, with a roomy and very comfortable interior. The only way to buy an expensive SUV is to get it pre-owned with low miles. That is the best way not to eat the immediate depreciation on a luxury import, and still have the factory warranty. Find a Mercedes Dealer who is attentive to detail and you can't go wrong. My ML350 looks like it just drove off the showroom floor, and the dealer, Park Place Motors in Bedford, Texas is outstanding. I've owned it now for about 4 months, and love the quiet ride, and great sound system. I've also owned an Acura MDX (2002), loved it but not the new body style. The ML350 is a classy looking vehicle. You can't go wrong. There is a large gas tank, and mileage has been about 18 to 20 mpg, and I use it primarily in highway driving. I would recommend the ML350 to anyone who prefers a luxury SUV....read morehide

- No Complain
Purchased As New
I love this SUV, ML350 bring me anywhere at wanted to go and find my self seating behind the steering wheel with comfort and feeling safe. After driving two brandnew Toyota SUV and Nissan Truck, I can not compare them against my ML350, It is little expensive but the safety is no comparison to my previous truck and SUV....read morehide

- Nice Comfortable ride, very smooth.
- When AC is on, it fogs over the passenger side outside mirror so it's sometime difficult to see
This is a great improvement over the initial shape of the ML. Much better shape
This car is comfortable. It has a very smooth ride, similar to a car.
The gas could be better, I get about 16-18MPG Average. I get about 400 miles on a tank of gas, which is absoultely great for an ALL WHEEL DRIVE SUV.
I have always lived by the notion "if you can't afford the gas, don't buy the car." Especially for a MBZ.
The COMMAND system could be a little more intuitive, but it's not bad. The backup camera is great, as well as the power folding mirrors.
This is my 3rd Mercedes and I have not had any major problems with any of them. Would not want to drive anything else...read morehide

- Appearances are everything. This one makes a great first impression. Love the interior.
- Navigation is from the flinstones age. Gas mileage is terrible.
I like driving this long distances but want the resale to be worth something. I have had mine 10 months and have just over 5000 miles. Loved every minute of it so far.

- Spacious vehicle, Great ride, excellent sound system
- The car is horrible with gas.
The car is definetely one of the best cars we have ever owned. We were orignally aiming for an S-Class but we decided that the car costs to much money for nothing. Basically it is an amazing car. One thing I point out is the ride you will get. We were doing 95mph and were going very smoothly. It rides like a sedan. You don't feel like you are in an SUV. I also love the sound system. The sound is very clear and I love the bass....read morehide

- Excellent driving, Power, Performance, Comfort, Brakes system.
- No third row seats option. Hands Free system needs additional adaptor for $500 cost.
Actually I got my ML350 saddenly. I commit to buy Hyundai Veracruz AWD Limited. But Mercedes dealler at Rallye Mercedes offer me unbeatable price for Brand New ML350 with Navigation, power LiftGate, Hands Free Communication, Running Boards & apperience pcg for only $40.800 so I got it.
I am happy with this Car. Very nice, Very Smooth ride, Excellent Brakes, Very comfortable.
I Highly recomended this car to other people.
Just ONE Adwise. Before pick-up car from dealler strongly demand Hands Free System to be Fully completed. I mean DEMAND Phone CRADLE Adaptor before paying. Afterward you will have to spend $500 more....read morehide

- comfortable, quiet ride
- Has a big tank, so fill up is quite expensive. Not much pick up going uphill.
This is one of my favorite cars. I also have a 2000 ML430 that I am letting my daughter drive now. It has had a lot of repairs over the years, but i love how it drives, so I got another ML. The ML 350 is so quiet and smooth. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't have the power that my ML 430 has when going up steep hills. I had it floored and it would not go more than 30 mph up a steep hill in my neighborhood. Other then that, it's a great little SUV. The back seat has plenty of leg room, and it's perfect for someone with two kids....read morehide

- Great in ride and handling. Very comfortable.
- Navigation System
Great SUV and excellent value. I had RX350 and believe it or not, the ride is much better than RX350. It rides smooth and controlled over turns and highway ramps. Quiet on highways and turning radius is very impressive. The only thing that I don't like is Navigation System..they need to learn GPS from Lexus. But, we don't buy cars due to navigation system..a Garmin can be bought under $300. Overall, I highly recommned this vehicle....read morehide

- Great Looks, Amazing interior Mercedes-Benz Status
This is my first MB and I have to say I understand why people shell out this type of cash for themI picked up my 2008 350 Premium II 5 days ago. The car has far exceeded my expectations in the short time I have had it. The ride, comfort, looks and value are supreme to any other car in its class. I test drove the X5 and MDX, while they drove great, I felt that the looks of the MB dwarfs the others. With all the options I got in my ML, the X5 would have been 10k more! If your looking for a head turner and ultimate luxury this is the car for you. This car made me an MB owner for life....read morehide

- Comfortable Seating, Good Handling, Nice Looking Exterior, Dependable
- Not a Luxurious Interior, Poor Placement of Some Controls, Needs More Cup Holders
Our last three SUV's have been a Lexus and I never thought I would go to anything else, but due to a back condition, I had to say good-bye to my Lexus, which hubby now has. After sitting in a lot of SUV's, there was no choice but to go with the 2008 ML350. The driver's seat felt wonderful! I've had this SUV since December and am very happy with it. I will definitely purchase another one in 5 years. I try to keep my SUV's for 4 years, but unfortunately the 2004 Lexus only made it 3 years. The ML350 drives great, feels much heavier and sturdier than the Lexus RX330 did. The exterior measurements are almost the same, but somehow the ML350 feels larger, roomier. It rides smoother, taking the bumps better and is less noisy on the highways. Passengers always remark on the better ride and the feeling of security with this SUV. I was also impressed by the Crash Test Scores, especially since I do highway driving daily. I only have a few negatives about this SUV; the interior isn't as plush as a Lexus, Mercedes needs to spruce it up a little more. Also a few controls are placed hard to see places, like the window wipers and cruise control. All in all, I've been very pleased with my purchase and I just hope when I go to trade it in, that it holds it's value....read morehide
