Good point!! I think I'll go with the LE Murano. It has all the extras built in, and the reliability is better according to the experts. MB charges for everything extra and having owned Alfas and Porsche in the past, the fits one has every time a new noise erupts is too unsettling. I really like the Benz, but I don't feel like getting aggrivated. Actually, the new Murano is very appealing. Thanks.

I cant believe some one is comparing Murano with a ML in this forum.
Reliability aside , Merc is a Merc and thier core values remain intact.
Check consumer reports and they only report reliabilty issues for minor things, whereas engine and other safety features always get top grades
#340 of 742 what are the lease numbers you are seeing on a new ML?

I was at a Mercedes dealer today and got quoted $499 a month plus tax. This is for the ML 350 with the P1 package. I hadn't even started talking about what the price of the car was. This is for a 33-month lease. let me know what you think?

Is the ML500 better or the ML63 AMG is comfort driving experience?
Are the looks same or different can the ML500 have the same looks as the 63 AMG?
Any new buyers experience?

What are the details of the lease? How much down and how many miles/year?
Where did you get that quote?

They actually dont make the ML500 anymore, it's now the ML550 which fully loaded is about $70-72k i believe the ML63 on the other hand is in the $90k range fully loaded. I would think the ride on both would be equally comfortable though the ML63(500+hp), being an AMG, would have a slightly tighter feel and more road feel to it. Honestly if you want a ridiculously fast, great handling, luxurious driving SUV the ML63 is for you. If you prefer something with more then adequete power (382hp)for an SUV along with the luxury amenities then the ML550 would be for you. Honestly drive each one for yourself and then decide, looks are just one aspect to consider and in this case the looks are very similar.

These forums have been invaluable in regards to getting better deals so I am posting what I just bought. Hope this helps! I think it was a great deal especially considering no other dealers were able to get this package II with color combo and options I was looking for. Or their prices were much higher. This salesperson was great, very professional and efficient.
ML 350 Iridium Silver with black MB Tex
Premium II pkg with: Ipod, Parktronic, 6 Disc, Running boards
Selling price $45,182, Total drive offs of $2,000
Monthly base $566 and $610.00 including tax.
Money factor based on .00185, 60% residual
Mileage allowance at 10k although this dealer was so easy going probably could have bumped it up if I wanted to at no extra charge.

Apr 01, 2008 (12:29 pm)
Am considering buying, not leasing, a 2008 ML350. How much should I pay for it in NV?
Have the 2006 ML350 7-speed transmission problems (jerkiness (surging and lunging) of the vehicle when driving slow or stopping been resolved by MB?
