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