2000 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD


Review

My first MB. I like the ride, handling,
safety, and sound system. Disappointed
with quality issues (body dents easily,
sensor light problems, window switches
not functioning, I lost power steering
prior to recall, air conditioner "weak"
in hot weather). Biggest disappointment
is: engine is burning oil and requires
additional trips to dealer to "top off"
oil between "computer approved" dealer
services. Dealer's solution: change
oil more often (at my expense). This
ML320 hasn't met my expectations of the
quality I associated with MB products.
I believe the MB reputation of
retaining value is being significantly
damaged.


Best Features

AWD, speaker phone, Bose sound system, safety, visibility from driver seat, comfort of drive and ride.


Worst Features

Build to meet quality expectations of MB buyer. Change service interval to a much shorter time frame for oil changes

2000 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 4dr SUV AWD


Review

At 40K miles, 3 sets of complete brake
pads and rotors, 2 navigation systems,
complete fuel system replaced, 1 set of
exterior mirrors, headlamps with so
much condensation they look like fish
tanks (but the dealership says it's
normal??), antitheft is so good that it
even locks me out and the transmitters
won't unlock the vehicle (the key will,
but then the alarm sounds and wont stop
until you disconnect the battery---no
wonder my neighbors won't speak to me
anymore). I can go on for days, but if
I can give anyone advice if they are
even CONSIDERING buying this
vehicle......turn and run and don't
look back!


Best Features

Are you kidding?


Worst Features

Kill the model and stick to the S and SL. You have tarnished your image with this model.

Review

My wife (principle driver) loves this
car; I'm less enthused, but it's been
much more reliable than what Consumers
Report would lead one to believe.
Other than regular maintenance and
recalls, we've had: replace the
cassette deck; adjustment of door
latches x2; front brake pad replacement
(27K); drivers power window switch
replaced. Could be better for a car at
40K miles; but could have been a lot
worse.


Best Features

Leather seats are very comfortable for long drives. Privacy glass. Service provided at Wilmington Motorcars. Smooth cruise control (even though the CC stalk position is strange)


Worst Features

Fuel economy is poor, but what do you expect for an SUV? Reliability has not been the best, but dealer has taken care of everything except brakes during the 4-year warranty period. Limited space behind the rear seats. Optional 3rd row seating is rather clunky to put in and take out.

Review

This SUV (2000) is by far the most
outstanding vehicle in the SUV class. I
have been in, driven, and tested others
both on and off road. The ML320 has the
most outstanding combination of off-
road and on-road, convenience, safty,
and comfort. Did I mention safty? The
ESP is awsome and has proven itself to
me (no details). Everything in this
vehicle is quality. From the wheels to
the door knobs. The electronics are
also awsome and never fail. kudos...


Best Features

ESP and handling in weather, off-road, and on-road.


Worst Features

N/A
