What's Up with the ML320?
By Carl Chappell on
2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 AWD 4dr SUV (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
Easy to enter the vehicle. Good, firm, fronts seats with good adjustments for different sized people. Do not like the CD player being in the back of the vehicle. Good fit and finish. Engine noise not too bad, wind noise is negligible. Fuel economy is near 20. Good view from from seats, fair from the back. Transmission is smooth and responsive. Auto shifter is fun. Pulls 2000 lb. trailer with relative ease. Sound system is good with above noted exception.
Sliding back seat. Ease of entry, good view of roadway. Size of sun roof good.
Put CD changer in the front where the passengers are! Use straight six, instead of V6. (more torque, less steering pull)
