I have researched a lot when I bought mine.

As someone who had been driving a diesel for 13 years I was looking at the diesel first, but decided against it. These high tech diesels are not the same as the old and simple robust ones> They run extremely hot and can be problematic.

The gas version, on the other hand, if you buy a later version (stay away from 2006 - 2007, 2008 would be OK, but 2009 is better, 2010 is best, 2011 has new engine, first years, would avoid it)

I am very satisfied with my 2010 ML 350 4matic and in the two years I have had it I have spent (knock on wood) 150$ in repairs on it. (of course more on maintenance like brakes, tires, service)

I also found that I liked the ride of the 2010 much better than the 2009 - confirmed this with testing twice.

The only issue I have is the left rear brake light going out sometimes. Then I take the bulb out, put it back in again, and then it will be Ok for six to eight months).
