Looking to buy the 2010 Mercedes M350

I am thinking of purchasing the 2010 Mercedes M350, do anyone own one or know someone who has one? Any feedbacks, pros and cons will be helpful. Thanks everyone!

Make sure you get their C-Lai appearance package.





But in all seriousness, they're garbage. My mom had an older ML and they're pure shit. Interior isn't that great, driving dynamics suck, power was mediocre... overall failure. I do like the new X5s though.

Get the CDI one instead. Tank of gas can last for 2 weeks.

Ah you mean the Mitsubishi M350:

I wouldn't get it. It's rather outdated if you ask me.

Buy a used one and save a ton of money. My dad has owned a ML420 and now owns a ML 500 and there not worth the money. There build quality is not the same as the other Mercedes cars. I havn't driven a ML350 but the old ML320 was lacking power.

OT: I spotted a brand new black ML Taxi with wheels with a SR motorsport banner across the windshield today on Granville. It was quite the sight.

Pay a bit more and get the diesel, driven that in both GL and ML and acceleration is more than adequate, and you'd be looking at about 12L/100km realistically in the city

To be honest, I've experienced the ML and the GL and neither are very reliable, I'd say go for the Q7 or X5 if you're looking at buying new, they tend to be better for reliability than mercedes.

And a little different but the rx350 is a lot cheaper, and a new body style, but may not be what you want...
