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