Hello all, happy new year and let's hope it's more sane than 2020.

My lad is looking at buying a GLE 250D @2017.
I believe the ML has a bad reputation, is the GLE a reliable car? Anything he should look out for?
Thanks so much.
Tom.

The W166 GLE - which your lad is considering - is a great car, as were the two generations of ML (W166 and W164) which preceded it.

The very first W163 MLs off the production line - 20 years or so ago - had some issues, but they’ll be scrapped or sorted by now. The facelifted W163 was a great car too.

I can’t comment on the engine, but the W166 platform is great IMHO.
