Old but gold 2005 Mercedes ML

2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class 3.7L

We love the car it's just the top window always leak when it's raining. It's very comfortable inside all seats are nice and spaced good. It's our everyday car so it's very reliable. The performance is always good even when we're driving a long distance specially out of state. We don't have the latest features like our 2015 model but nevertheless it's still our favorite car.

Great vehicle overall no major problems with the engine or the performance

2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class 3.7L

It's been a great vehicle haven't had any problems have put 2 belts replaced the brake and calipers runs great for the mileage I have on it now has 246,809 on the odometer. And still running great. Did a tune up on it replaced the radiator tank power steering pump now has a small leak but nothing major

Solid and strong but heavy and thirsty.

2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class 3.7L

Expensive to fix, ac vent actuators break, passenger sensor breaks, engine covers leak. Since the car is pretty heavy fuel efficiency is not that great and it only takes premium unleaded. The body is solid and strong and when everything is well the car is pretty reliable.
