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


Review

The M class is one of the best luxury SUV's in the market today. Its handling is great and its ride quality is good. The interior of the M class is simple and functional with plenty of luxury amenities. Its exterior is tough yet elegant. The reliability of the M class seems to have improved considerably over the years and now appears to be on par with the competition. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a safe and competent mid- size luxury SUV.


Best Features

Auto lights, Auto sensing windshield wipers, Auto dimming rear view and dimming side view mirrors, Auto locking doors, Excellent dealer service


Worst Features

Door ajar warning light, A more functional onboard computer

Review

I leased a 1999 ML and got this new 2002 version after my lease ended. I liked the 99, but was really upset with the overall poor fit & finish. This car is entirely different! Much better quality and feels like a luzury car! Still a few complaints - not like a German made MB, but it's great!


Best Features

Fun to drive! Feels VERY solid and safe!


Worst Features

Rattles and squeeks.

Review

I love my ml. The only problem I have had is a fuel system software upgade I had done to get better fuel economy didnt work out so well but it has since bee fixed. To the clown who says they flip too easily. tell us how you flipped yours where a car and driver stunt driver could not? Also I do not undertsand those who say the interior quality stinks. I have owned volvo bmw and mb and the quality in the interior is awesome


Best Features

Worst Features

mak,e the rear bumber cover with a cutout for the trailer hitch. Why should a $45k have to have the bumper cover cut freehand?

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


Review

This is one of the safest SUV's available in the market. The 3.2L engine has sufficient power for most applications. Handling and ride quality are good for a truck with a body-on- frame design. Climate Control is very efficient but the sun sensor is a little too sensitive. Reliability has been very good with 12,000 trouble free miles so far.


Best Features

Climate Control, Bose audio, auto- locking doors, seat memory, free scheduled maintenance for 4 yrs/48K mi.


Worst Features

Providing an LCD screen in the instrument panel like other MB models in lieu of separate old style warning indicating lights, Providing a "door ajar" indicator
