I own a R320 CDI 2008, bought new. Fantastic car, it is the most comfortable Mercedes I have ever owned. We get 21/22 mpg in town; 28/30 mpg on highway.
The cruise control if fantastic for interstate and here in mountains, when we go down our very steep grades, the cruise will keep car from overrunning the speed you set.
I change my own oil. I do it the same way our local MB Specialist Garage does it, using a vacuum device to pull it out of the dipstick. Also, oil filter is done from the top, no crawling under the car. I do my wifes CLK320 as well. same way, easy.
7 speed transmission has been very reliable. When I took it in for 1,000 mile 'check' (Free)' They fixed a sensor that was saying I was low on engine oil.
I have 1 issue now, Command system will reboot when going down hill on cruise, and there is a TB on it, deal will fix it by replacing some diodes. (Warranty);
BTW, I did drive the ML320 & GL320 2009 Bluetecs the other day. The ML320 what a dog, it would hesitate too much on takeoff from stop. The GL320 was sweet. Both however had "run-flat" Tires, no spare. WOW are they NOISY. They are so NOISY, I will NOT buy one, and will be looking for 2007/2008 model. (CDI); They had to make room for the 'blue-tec' tank.

I have come to the same conclusion on the blutec Mercedes. I don't like the urea treatment business. If I could find a super clean 2007-08 ML or GL CDI I would grab it. Then sell this gas guzzling Sequoia.
same goes for those horrible run flat tires.

Don't forget that the ML 320 BlueTec has run flat tires and no spare. That's a deal breaker for me.
