2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Was my grandparents SUV but is now mine. Never any major problems for either of us. Great midsized SUV. Takes bad weather like a champ. Reliability is as you would expect for a MB. Some of the exterior factory colors don't look great. Go with black if it's an option. My only complaint with the car would be the fuel efficiency.


Best Features

Very comfortable, one touch windows, trunk space, safe, stylish for an SUV


Worst Features

Lower center of gravity and better fuel efficiency if at all possible

Review

This has been a wonderful car. Built like a truck. A little rough in town, but get it on the highway and it drives like a dream, solid and heavy. Good gas mileage, usually around 25-26 mpg.

2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought a used 2003 with low miles and just love the way it handles the road, especially in the rain. The sound system and climate controls are superb.


Best Features

The cruise control and the heated seats


Worst Features

I've seen the 2006 ML500 and the headrests are designed to not get in the way. Plus the CD changer is in the glovebox vs. the rear cargo area.

Review

Shortly after purchasing this I got a lot of flack for buying a 4 wheel drive car that most people never take off- road. Living in the desert I quickly put them all to shame when I drove my ML through a wash that 2 lifted pick up trucks were currently stuck in and then proceded to do a 12 mile treck through the desert on a trail that was "Jeep Recomended". This SUV is the best SUV on the market. It has amazing off-road capabilities, a very comfortable interior, a powerful engine, and hardly any problems. But, what else would you expect from the vehicle the German military relies on.


Best Features

Comfortable and roomy interior. Off- road capabilities.


Worst Features

The stereo is no good. The only problems I had with the car were due to the stereo malfunctioning. But Mercedes is always quick to fix problems in a very timely and curtious manner.
