4 4 4 4 cough!

AdvantagesStrudy and flash,

DisadvantagesTerrible bumpy ride, unreliable and expensive to run

"...I did go on the Mercedes off road day, close to Maidenhead and took 5ft Sherry (my wife, not a large bottle of drink!) with me and she excelled getting the big lump up and down gorges and dips. She also drove the car well. The ML does hold its own off road but the tyres need changing to accommodate this. I will go on about this a bit later. Okay, bulky appearance but front views show a predominant grille which resembles a row of sharks teeth really. ..." Read review

Do you want to drive a blamonge?

AdvantagesInterior space

Disadvantageseverything else!

"...are new and how good Mercedes are meant to be I can honestly say I would never buy one. Overall all I can say about this car is its expensive to look after, doesn't handle, ride or drive well, isn't really that comfy and wobbles like a blamonge! (And just for the people wondering what I'm comparing it too. At work I use BMW X5's, Land Rovers, Vauxhall Vectra VXR's, Mondeo St220's and Volvo V60R's) ..." Read review

ML270CDi - What a family car

AdvantagesDriving Position, Reliability, Comfort, Service

Disadvantagesno, not really......

"...you are doing well - Mercedes will fix anything under (the transferable) warranty, just be cool and concise about the problem, they will help......this way, you can almost be assured of having a good buy, even if the trading garage or private seller don't offer a warranty. Buy one, enjoy it and don't be afraid to drive it hard, it is after all a legendarily reliable Merc ! ..." Read review

Mercedes ML270 cdi 7 seater (X reg 2000) automatic

AdvantagesSafety, 7 seater option, spacious

DisadvantagesFuel consumption, insurance problems, basic inside, costs

"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 of a shock, but it is worth it. There is not much leg room when all the 7 seats are used but the third row are more than OK for the kids or a small ..." Read review

The car of my dreams

AdvantagesEverything

Disadvantagesleg room in rear seats

"...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 round corners and is surprisingly nippy for such a big heavy diesel car, one of the main issues for me having 4 children is safety, and with 8 air bags and numerous other safety features this car feels like a tank. Mercedes seem to have thought of everything, heated seats, ..." Read review

The go anywhere in the ML 270cdi

AdvantagesA car you feel you can go anywhere in the ML 270cdi

DisadvantagesBrake pad and disk wear.

"...unlikely to have any problems. As Mercedes are not going to introduce the post 2005- model ML in a 7 seater version there is likely to be good demand for the 2002-2005 7 seater model with a premium of up to 2000 as it would cost 2500 to retro fit 7 seat option and the conversion does not have rear A/C and opening quarter light windows in the rear so a factory family pack is worth the extra even if you don't need it as it when you go to sell it'll ..."

ML270

Advantages7 seats,economical and performance

DisadvantagesNot much

"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 goodies. It is therefore as practical as an MPV without looking like a van. Build quality is excellent and it is an excellent motorway cruiser. The body ..." Read review

Mercedes ML 270cdi

AdvantagesHigh luxury with 5 star safety

DisadvantagesCar taxing penalty

"I have a Mercedes ML 270 cdi and I cant praise it enough. I have had a Range Rover and a Freelander in the past and deffinately will never change from Mercedes now. It is fabulous to drive, comfortable and even with only a 270 engine as opposed to the more powerful ones it pulls my horses fine. It gives the luxury of an upper class car but the security of a 4x4 with the reliability of German manufactoring. We have found a brilliant mercedes trained ..." Read review

My Merc 270 CDi

AdvantagesGood space, Fuel economy, adaptability

DisadvantagesNone found

"I have recently bought my Mercedes ML 270 Cdi. on a 52 plate after trawling the market place for a BMW X5. My missus spotted this machine and we havent looked back. The beast (I mean that in a loving term) has less than average miles, and is in metallic black, with chrome A Bar and Chrome sidesteps. STUNNING. And with all the Kudos of Merc and as many additions as an X5, i am more than happy with my purchase. It looks, drives and feels superb. ..." Read review

A super car

AdvantagesIt's a super car to drive and it's great fun. Also you can go vitually anywhere you like.

DisadvantagesYou 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 isn't to high. If you are on a budget then it won't be a car for you. However if you can afford the 30K price for the ML 270 and the cost for petrol / tax ..." Read review

I wouldn't bother

AdvantagesLooks flash.

DisadvantagesJust 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 limited compared to other models and other cars. Unless you're very used to driving a 4x4, this can make manouveres extremely difficult, almost like guesswork ..." Read review

Mercedes ML270CDi

Advantages7 Seats

DisadvantagesNow has been replaced by new model.

"...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 are the 2002 onwards cars as these had a better finish and items such as climate control instead of just air conditioning. Also avoild petrol engines as these are very thirsty but does mean that they can be picked up for a good price in comparison to the diesel ..." Read review
