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

Review

I had a '99 ML-320 that was so awful the dealer gave me a great deal to get out of it into a 2000 model, which he claimed was much improved. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Among the problems were nagging Check Engine lights that came on every so often, stuttering power locks that sometimes locked and sometimes didn't, a/c which was improperly wired, center arm console which would bubble-up (was replaced three times), a/c compressor blew its fuse every so often (had to travel with spare fuses), expensive brakes that would last only about 20,000 miles, and, of course, the five times in three years the car would not start and had to be towed.

Favorite Features

Solid feel, great handling in wet weather. If the damned thing worked, it would be nice, but the fact of the matter is it doesn't.

Suggested Improvements

Have someone who knows how to put a car together build it--Mercedes obviously has no clue. Mercedes has eternally tarnished its image with me--I now have an Acura MDX with no problems whatsoever, the way a $40,000+ vehicle should be (by the way, got hammered on the trade-in).
