Fun to drive, this first year model was
not fully sorted out and has some small
reliability issues. Once sorted out, it
performs fine. Later years of the ML
320 were reputed to be better. It does
do OK as a 4WD well and is nimble.

MB should pay more attention to
quality. Gas cap, window switches,
ignition key ring, harmonic
balancer,timing belts, and fuel pump,
were all replaced over 6 years.
