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


Review

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

The 342 ponies under the hood.


Worst Features

gas mileage

Review

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.


Best Features

My favorite features are the rims, power doom hood, fender flares, wood trim, NAV, 342 hp, xenon lights, front bumber, rear bumper, heated seats, phone, fog lights, safe box, and just about every other thing in it.


Worst Features

Supercharger!

Review

I traded in my 2000 ML320 (old model)
for a 2002 ML55 (new model) last may,
and I must say that besides the obvious
performance gain, the quality of the car
(interior, rattling, overall quality)
has also improved a lot. I'm basically a
very happy camper, and besides a recall
involving the powersteering everything
has been fine. This car and the
dealership I bought it at live up to my
Mercedes-Benz quality expectations. I
don't quite understand the static the
other reviewers give the ML55. The only
thing against the car would be the fuel
milage.


Best Features

Horsepower and torque. Better looking than its competitors: X5/Cayenne/Toaregg/... Reliability.


Worst Features

It would be nice to have had air suspension as an option.

Review

First, mine ia a 2001 model. We have
had electrical problems,cooling
problems, power steering problems, air
bag problems, and the car is now at the
dealer to have the fuel pump replaced.
All in only 18 months! We live in the
mountains and the 4 wheel drive system
is the worst I have ever used. The
worst indictment of all is that
MERCEDES does not seem to care.


Best Features

It is very hard to be positive.


Worst Features

QUALITY MUST BE IMPROVED.
