    Default New ml 250

    Pls can anyone give detailed feedback on these. Is it sufficiently powerful? Other points pls free to add.

    Define powerful enough? How fast do you want to go? Do you want to tow something?

    Best bet would be to test drive one and see for yourself.

    Tough to define.... Not wanting a boy racer but enough to be a satisfying drive. Safe for overtaking. Ability to cruise up hills etc at say 140 to 150 comfortably.

    From what I have read the ML250 is plenty powerful and good value. But if you plan to spec a lot of options then the 350 is a better buy.

    Yeah. Am just thinking that at 700k a fully specced prado is a better bet.

    Doc , give Kunene a ring & ask to test drive them , if they don't have the demos , tell them to get one , Mc Carthy is a big enough group . They can send for a demo model from Jhb or Pta
    When faced with the dilemma of being right or being happy , I choose happy every time

    They are my clients. I am their supplier. But they are useless. I have asked for a quote on the new ml thrice. That includes management. To date no quote.

    You will get better resale value on the prado though. Dont know how long you intend to keep the vehicle though.

    That is my experience with the McCarthy group as well. Try New Vaal Motors in Vereeniging for excellent after sale service.(016 4306500)
