I traded my BRAND NEW JGCL with 16K
miles on it due to numerous problems.
Got the '99 ML320 for an excellent
price with under 42K miles, and I am
not looking back. The car handles
well, and is excellent in wintery
weather/ice. Acceleration is good
(especially in highway traffic), and my
choc lab LOVES this car - no more
lurching off the back seat when I drive
off due to excellent stability! Just to
be safe, bought an extended warranty
for an additional 36k miles - have not
had to use it yet, so maybe I wasted my
money on that. Overall, an excellent
buy. Now, I just have to convince my
family to bury me in it when the time
Acceleration is amazing for this heavy
vehicle, smooth shifting engine,
ability to park it in smaller parking
What's up with the poor gas mileage??
Also, the controls are a bit dim in the
daytime, and window controls awkward to
use. Cup holders are not stable enough
when liquid container is full. Hard to
remember features (keep referring to
manual for stuff).
