I have owned my ML 320 CDI for about a month now. Fuel economy is great, averaging 23 in town and 28 on the highway. I have the black with MB Tex interior - I am not a big fan of the MB Tex yet. I purchased this vehicle because it was the best deal on the lot, trading in a BMW 328I. The SAM computer went out when I had the car in for the 1000 mile check - AT THE DEALERSHIP! It was covered under warranty of course but it took 2 days to get it repaired. Speaking of repairs, I have nothing but GREAT PRAISE for my dealership, Mercedes Benz of Sugar Land, Texas. They are a 5 start dealership and really go out of the way to take care of the customer.
Back to the SUV - turning radius is great, ride is firm but not jarring, seats and dash are good, I find the NAV easy to use now that I have been getting to know it better. It probably is dated but not the worst one out there, BY FAR!
as far as options are concerned, I have purchased the Bluetooth adapter and I am about to get the roof rack system off of EBAY. I got the Bluetooth for $220 delivered and it works GREAT, using the COMAND NAV/radio for all controls, not to mention the steering wheel buttons. It will download my phone list so I can see who is calling without taking my hands off the wheel or my eyes very far off the road - an excellent idea.
The ML is my favorite vehicle to date - I wish it had the maintenance covered like the BMW but only time will tell about this cost. This vehicle comes after the BMW 328i, a 2008 FORD F250 diesel (terrible fuel economy), Chevrolet Avalanche and Tahoe, and a lot of other vehicles. I tend to trade often, as you can see.
This one is making a believer out of me....
