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


Overall the vehicle is a good buy if you are stepping up in class for the first time. However if you expect Mercedes quality in the M-class you will be disappointed as I was. Within the 1st year of ownership I had to return the vehicle to the dealership 3 times to fix small rattles, loose nuts etc. The breaks seem to wear more on this vehicle than any other that I have owned. Coming from a Ford Explorer I expected more from a Mercedes. If you have to go with Mercedes go with their cars, but as far as luxury SUVs their so-so.

Best Features

The std. navigation system is one of the best features I like. There are also lots of bells and whistles to warn you of the cars performance – just wish that they wouldn’t go off so often within the first year of purchase. The side mirrors also can be turned in electronically.

Worst Features

For a vehicle of this stature the AC system should be fully automated.
