2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Overall I'm very happy with my ML 320. I'm getting good mileage, 17 mpg in the city and better on the highway if I could drive slower. The problem is the faster it goes, the smoother the ride. It almost seems to float down the highway. Problems were brakes wear out too fast, power steering fluid leaked out from a bad clamp and radio kept cutting out and took weeks to diagnose.


Favorite Features

Cupholders are placed very well. Great ride on the highway above 72 mph.


Suggested Improvements

Power rear liftgate. Power rear seats. CD changer should be in the car for better accessibility. All windows and power sunroof should be 1 touch.

Review

three recalls -- one of which could have allowed serious injury or death -- and now the drive train is gone -- 26,000 total highway miles. the dealership has been outstanding -- but i guess they would have to be with this piece of junk. German kwowhow...i'll take japaneese quality.

Review

I purchased this car as an executive car with 6000. miles on it. I really like the car however it has been back to the dealer at least 4x since purchased. seat belts always hang when released this has caused many dents in my door jam from the kids closing the doors with the seat belt hanging in the door jam. many cracks in the interior panels which service replaced, glove compartment door broke, as well as problems with the drivers side window not working.


Favorite Features

7 seats, great stereo, nice interior. the fact that mercedes gives you a loner car every time I have a problem.


Suggested Improvements

put those cup holders in the center of the car! also a more positions on the front seats,like lumbar support,
