2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Love the ML500. Park Place gives excellent service.


Favorite Features

Love the space, quality and pep it has.


Suggested Improvements

Mirror on passenger side to move downward automatically as you place the car in reverse. At present, you have to press passenger window button to achieve this.

Review

Purchased as a flexible, sturdy, safe vehicle with a luxury image, we have been satisfied on those criteria. It is strongly-built with many safety features. The V6 seems undersized, but the smooth 5sp automatic works to give the ML adequate grunt. Fuel economy is low (16-17MPG). Ride is choppy, but improves with additional cargo or passengers. Interior is roomy, quiet and refined in Mercedes style, with a great seating position. I find the seats overly firm for long trips. 4 wheel traction and braking systems and high clearances make this a decent off road SUV. Interior pieces have broken, fixed under warranty. Dealer service is as expensive as feared.


Favorite Features

Outstanding safety features and ratings, a real feeling of sturdiness. Seating position gives a feeling of command of the vehicle. Great usable space on a relatively short wheelbase. Great transmission and very usable off road drive system.


Suggested Improvements

Reduce service costs. Improve suspension compliance. Pad the seats a little more. Delicate and complex interior systems (cupholders, console lids) could be made simpler and sturdier

Review

I am aware that other consumers have had diffuculties in the past regarding the M-class however I bought a 98, 320 when it came out, a 99 430 when it came out and a 02 500 as soon as it came out. I have been extremely happy with it and I love to see the look of disbelief on the faces of the Mustang GT drivers when off the line and to 60mph or more they are only a distant memory in my rearview mirror. I couldn't justify the added expense of the ML55, the 500 provides all of the power, and more, than I will ever need.


Favorite Features

There is a low watt bulb located underneath the rearview mirror that gently illuminates the dash at night, also the two tone dashboard is beautiful.


Suggested Improvements

the center front cup holder is awkward and I would like to see the rear cup holders in the door
