2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
This is our first ML. We have enjoyed a lot. It is really safe and confortable and fun to drive. Fuel economy shouldn't be an issue when you buy a SUV, there are plenty of GEOs out there if that is what you are looking for. My wife love it, she can put 2 strollers, lots of shopping bags, 2 big car seats, 2 friends etc. I feel my family is safe when they ride in this car. There have not been important reliability issues and we are planning to buy again a ML. Service was great and 100% better than BMW.
BOSE, leather, space, lights, airbags everywhere, excellent service
Brake pads, radio/phone controls on the steering wheel
