This review is a year or two old but then so is the 270, replaced by the 320. I am not really a 4X4 fan as I see no use for them but when giving one to drive for nothing, like any car, it is a different story. Longer than my normal review but have added some key skimmer lines at the end to save...

Not for me

ProInterior space

Conseverything else!

Although I don't own one of these I do use one at work week in week out (52 plate) but only when they're aren't any other cars available to use. I've got to say it is one of the worst cars I have ever driven. Sure they don't look bad on the road and interior space isn't bad but apart from that I...

I have always wanted this car (well for as long as I can remember) so, when the opportunity came along to buy one, there I was! I couldn't fault the Mercedes dealership, they were helpful and the service I recieved was second to none. The ML 270 cdi is a dream to drive, it handles well , rolls...

Truly a car you feel you can go anywhere in the ML 270cdi great to drive and very comfortable even with 7 passengers in place. Very good in town and on Motorway. Beware petrol models are very very heavy on petrol. The ML is shorter than our E class Saloon and the E class Estate so Parktronic is a...

We have had this car for 3 months, previously owning a Citroen Picasso, and purchased it because we needed the extra seats with the 7-seater option. We have three small children (all under 7) and, so far, I am in love with it. Yes, it is very thirsty on fuel and the servicing costs are somewhat...

I bought the car as I wanted a reliable, roomy and economical vehicle. The diesel engine is very smooth and has excellent performance when compared to the Land Rover Discovery TDi.I have opted for the family and lux packs which means that the car is a 7 seater with leather seats and numerous...

ConsYou might not like your petrol bill.

If your looking for a car which you can take anywhere you go then it must be the ML 270. It great to drive and very comfortable for every body in the car. The size of the engine is ideal in a sense that it is powerful enough to get you about even in the country yet the petrol / fuel consumption...

ConsJust about everything

This is a nice car. It\'s a Mercedes- it\'s a 4X4. It\'s shiny. Being an automatic, the handling is much easier and driving is almost a relaxing experience in this motor. It has heated seats, cupholders and every other mod con imaginable. That's where it ends. Visibilty out of the vehicle is...

ConsNow has been replaced by new model.

Comfortable good looking off roader from Mercedes-Benz that is also available with seven seats. Now has been replaced by an all new Mercedes ML model so the prices on these has come down over the last few years. Avoid pre-1999 models as these were badly put together in the US. Most sought after...
