Nice design, gas guzzler, overpriced by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/09/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4MATIC, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Styling, interior design, controls are within easy reach and intuitive. Gas engine is powerful.
Cons: Gas mileage is horrible averaging 14/15 in city and 18 on highway for gas model. MB text seats - essentially vinyl should never be found on a car worth this much. Reliability for a new model - already had a few minor engine problems, hoping that the bugs are worked out. Bluetooth connection is complicated and does not always work with streaming.
Overall review: Very nice looking car, classy but should have bought the leather seats. Fuel economy is the pits. Even if you buy the diesel, you need to take into account the diesel ad blue fuel additive that you have to use. When you run out it will cost $50 to refill!!! Honestly I am having some buyers remorse and in hindsight maybe should have bought the AudiQ5, better gas mileage, nice looks and pocketed $15k. M class is overpriced for what you truly get.
