Vehicle

2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Looked at buying a used 00 or 01. GLAD we went with an 02. FAR nicer vehicle. Smoother, quieter, many nicer features (climate control, vents and controls for the rear seat passengers, etc...). The vehicle is very easy to drive. I would recommend it for someone who likes the additional room an SUV provides in the rear, but doesn't want to drive a huge vehicle.


Best Features

Navigation


Worst Features

3rd row seating similar to the Honda products (Pilot and Acura MDX) that fold into the floor when not in use. That would make this vehicle PERFECT.

Review

My first 1999 ML320 was a plain Jane model. It was unbreakable and the dealer support was much better than I expected. Although I bought it used, and from out of the area, the local dealers always exceeded my expectations. I liked the '99 but the '02 is dramatically improved. Every feature works better and I treated myself to all the amenities. I dispute the claims that the ML series is flawed and poorly assembled. Everything worked, always, and I used it hard.


Best Features

The respect you get from the public. They acknowledge that Mercedes is the best and they would have one if they could. Thats snob appeal. I like the quality of every part. It handles precisely and it feels like you're part of it when you push it to its limits.


Worst Features

Their improvements fixed problems I didnt even realize existed. I'm confident that they will continue to improve an already outstanding vehicle. If so, I'll buy another one in 3 years.

Review

The ML feels a little cheap and not as solid as what I expected. It does not have that heavy MB ride, and I do not feel swathed in luxury when I drive it.


Best Features

safety


Worst Features

Door ajar lights. Better navigation system (Lexus is much better). Offer stick shift version. Get rid of cheap plastic interior parts.
