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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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.
