1998 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD


Even with all the bad press and reliability problems my wife and I decided to purchase the truck. It's been relatively trouble free, and reliable. Yes, there are some squeeks and rattles, but they're minor. What repairs we did have we're costly, but it's a Mercedes. To quote a mechanic that worked on the car... "You're better off with the devil you know then the devil you don't!" We'll keep it for a while longer. (We do like the Highlander though!)

Best Features

The car is comfortable, and has plenty of room for my family. The 6 cylinder has plenty of power... and the truck handles like a dream. We got the M1 package so there's a lock box under the passenger seat and an a six CD player. The real winner though is the heated seats.

Worst Features

The interior is cheap, and some of the engine conponents are poorly designed. For example... the Harmonic Balancer. If this $225.00 part fails when you're driving you better hope you're under warranty because you're looking at a total engine rebuild. That's BIG BUCKS for this ride.
