2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
This is our first Mercedes, but not
our first SUV (we have had Jeeps in
the past). We stepped up for lots of
reasons - Safety, performance and
Status (this car is used in a sales
environment). The ML500 is simply an
amazing vehicle. It is comfortable
and FAST. I would prefer a smoother
ride with less jostling over the bumps
in the road, but the trade-off for
that kind of safety seems well worth
it. The ML500 has had its share of
little picky issues - namely a touchy
fuel gauge and mirrors that do not
adjust with the memory seats. Again,
small potatos for that kind of
peformance. It feels like a car that
will last forever!
ENGINE. SEATS. SAFETY. I cannot
tell you how amazing that 5l engine
responds to our inputs.
