Decent car, but not for the money
By Disappointed in NY on
1999 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 4dr SUV AWD
Good power, sophisticated AWD/traction
control, resonable comfort, good
headroom/rear legroom. BUT poor
placement of controls, rear seat
lowering is a nightmare, questionable
quality (e.g. fuel pump died at less
than 15,000 miles, no rear A/C vents,
no climate control for A/C, poor CD
changer placement, awful gas mileage,
minivan appearance, cup holders are a
joke, difficult access to spare tire.
Power, AWD system, spacius rear seats.
Redesign placement of headlight switch,
cruise control, window switches and CD
changer. Simplify operation of rear
seat fold-down. Climate control and
rear heater-A/C ventshould be a given
in a car this price. Re-establish
Mercedes quality of old.
