Review of the 2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class

  • Although it's getting a little long in the tooth, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class is still a competent luxury SUV.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Safe, comfortable, brisk performance, surefooted in bad weather.

  • Cons

    On-road handling eclipsed by newer crossover SUVs, gets pricey fast if buyer gets tempted by too many options.

  • What's New for 2003

    The M-Class' navigation system enters the 21st century by ditching the old CD-ROM-based design for a much more efficient DVD-based setup.…

It is a rocket

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML55 AMG AWD 4dr SUV (5.5L 8cyl 5A)

Having owned a variety of BMW's, MB's, and Lexus's, I can say that the ML 55 is simply for those that want an SUV that is all beast when you hit the gas. It lacks some of the basic conveniences and creature comforts that are found in lesser vehicles, but when you hit the gas, take a hard corner, and need it to respond, it there for you. No sissies need apply.




Great truck

Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML55 AMG AWD 4dr SUV (5.5L 8cyl 5A)

This is a great truck...PERIOD. I looked at getting an X5 4.6, Toureg, Cayenne, MDX, Rx330(so bland)and even a Navigator. No comparison. This is a sports car in an SUV's body. Gas mileage sucks, but you have 342 ponies to play with. I've had to bring it in for a couple recalls and some minor things, but the dealership has been great. No regrets.




Sexy beast

Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML55 AMG AWD 4dr SUV (5.5L 8cyl 5A)

The ML55 AMG is a "Sexy Beast". It is faster than 90%of the cars on the road. It's a fuel hunger SUV; But What would you expect for a 342 HP SUV? It's a rocket launcher! I love everything about my silver bullet.

What's New for 2003

The M-Class' navigation system enters the 21st century by ditching the old CD-ROM-based design for a much more efficient DVD-based setup. This is the lone change as the MLs received numerous updates last year.
