I Love My Mercedes ML
By Mark Godbee on
1999 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 4dr SUV AWD
I love the performance of this suv.
German car feel makes driving fun. I
receive many compliments on this
beautiful car. The rear could look less
like a mini-van but the front and side
looks awesome. After 101,000 miles, I
have only had a few problems: window
problems, cup holder, power-steering
pump, sunroof, interior trim, tail
light, and a/c fuse. But I'm not picky.
Warranty covered these items except
interior trim. There are obvious
quality control and reliability issues
with the interior of this truck which
can be costly, but I have yet to hear of
an engine problem/transmission problem
except for fuel pump. Be sure to buy
extended warranty, I think it's worth
Awesome look and ride. Ride is not as
smooth as Lexus RX 300/330 but I prefer
trade-off of sitting higher and hauling
Fix interior reliability issues (trim,
switches, electrical). Add 18" to rear
of car. Add mouling to rear to make it
look more sleek. Interior could be more
plush though I like the stiff seats.
Less plastic on interior trim. Add A/C
vents to back seats.
