Vehicle

2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 AWD 4dr SUV (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Mechanically this vehicle is good for at
least several hundreds of thousands of
miles. The ride is as quiet and good as
any luxury vehicle. The sound system
high quality but the speakers are not
well placed. The integrated MCS console
for radio/cassette/CD/GPS/telephone is
really well designed and easy to
comprehend and use relative to its
complexity.

Brake wear excessive, full replacement
at 10,000 miles! Second set of brakes
lasted another 30,000+ (a lot more
highway driving). Nagging electronic
problems, still having mostly electronic
problems requiring service calls & we've
had the vehicle for almost 2 and a half
years.

Best Features

Riding and driving on and off road (does quite well off road actually), the MCS integrated console system.

Worst Features

The integrated phone system locks you into a specific phone, doesn't allow use of most of the phone features & it's a ~$1250 option! You should be able to pick your phone and the GPS & phone address books should be bi-directional.
