All the noises and hard ride and uncomfortable stuff went away last week when I got rid of (traded in) the 2010 equinox and 2010 camaro for a Mercedes ML-350.
Now that is what I call a quiet comfortable ride!
It cost me two chevys and about 10 grand and not much less gas mileage.

Wait until you need to get the Mercedes repaired when it's out of warranty and fork out the money for the bill using your own money! Then we'll see who has a real PROBLEM.
Gotta luv that German engineering and reliability. I owned an Audi once but that's another story that would fill a book. If I were to write that book it would be titled " The Audi From HELL"

I'll stick with my Chevy's. That way I still have $$ for my other toys. Boat, motorcyle, etc. ;D

Nice choice! I cross shopped the GL 350 with the Terrain but it seemed to lack "personality".

OMG really?? What a big surprise!! :eek:
MSRP is 2 x that of Equinox/Terrain and adding toys costs even more.
I don't know why you are comparing fish and chips entree and Caviar appetizer.

Exactly!

[email protected]$25K + [email protected]$35K + $10K = $70K.

The ML-350 may be nice, but I'd keep the practical vehicle plus the sporty vehicle and the $10K fun money instead of the Benz.

lol and indeed he did. Going from a 1LT to a Mercedes ML 350 is a huge step up... one of those up here in the Great White North would set me back over $70,000 !!

Are you really comparing the Nox to a vehicle that costs more than twice as much? I agree that Mercedes makes some nice stuff, but as far as quality control/reliability they have been no better or even worse than the domestics in recent years. My sister has a fully loaded 05 E500 which is very nice...smooth ride, good handling/brakes and a powerful engine. Of course the thing has scared her enough that she always rents a car for out of town trips...the center stack and gauge electronics have freaked out twice, the rear climate control stopped working, the wipers stopped working, bits and pieces of interior trim (along with the flimsy cupholder) have fallen off/broken...and the piece de resistance was when the air suspension spectacularly collapsed when she was more than 200 miles from home. (and 200 miles from the nearest Mercedes dealership as well) YMMV and your ML350 may be rock solid until the day you sell/trade-in for something else...but just remember that you can't compare vehicles that are that far apart in price.

Also..if you can easily afford a decently equipped ML350...why did you only get a 1LT with the 4cyl?

Or need to buy an extended warranty, Like over 5K for 3/36 like they wanted for my beemer, but if you have the cash to throw away like that then you did good, me I would of got an X6 instead the benz don't look mutch different than the NOX.

Hope that new Mercedes came with fog lamps... I see he had them on his 1LT..
I would think that ccharley wont be reading/posting on here anymoe, probably recieved a special invite to join the Mercedes forum...
One has to wonder if on that forum they bitch as much about their vehicles as we do on here..
You know memory seat brought me back within 2mm of where it was supposed to . called the dealer in the middle of the night to let him know seat must work right....

Hope this Mercedes works out for him , his next move might have to be trade the Mercedes and his house on a Mayback oh ok include the wife..

Have to chuckle about the memory seat. My wife has a Caddy CTS and I seldom drive it. She is 5'2+ and Im 6' and only twice have I grabbed her keys to move her car and the seat adjusted to fit her and **** near killed me! Talk about panic :D
