2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
We bought this for normal everyday driving. Found it to be reliable and capable. Great engine and transmission. The box on frame design is a bit too rough, but the feel of durability is amazing. It has more umph than my old GMC. The tire wear was on the high side as was the brake wear. Stopping a 5000 truck takes a lot of brake lining. Excellent visability, nice looking, easy to maintain. Avg about 20mpg. Clean and efficient. Handles people, things and long drives like a pro.
OK, the engine is amazing. More HP than necessary. Great power and torque. Easy to start and goes like crazy through deep snow. Bose radio is wonderful. Comfortable seats.
Smoother ride, adjustable steering wheel telescoping would help a lot. Better overall service. Electronics were week.
