2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
NOISY TAILGATE LATCH ON MY WAY HOME
AFTER PURCHASE, AND NEEDED REPLACEMENT.
ANNOYING CREEKING SOUND DEVELOPED ON
PASSENGER SIDE WINDSHIELD FRAME
POST.DEALER KEPT VEHICLE 3 WEEKS. AFTER
TAKING MOST OF THE FRONT END AND DASH
APART THEY FOUND A SPOT WELD WHICH
NEEDED TO BE RE WELDED. VISIT TO CAR
WASH, THE WINDOW SWITCH WOULD NOT CLOSE
WINDOW AND HAD TO RETURN TO DEALER FOR
REPLACEMENT. POWER STEERING HOSE BROKE
AND LEAKED ALL OVER DRIVEWAY BECAUSE OF
FAULTY DESIGN. WOUND UP HAVING RECALL
ON THIS FAULTY DESIGN.TOP HEAVY FEEL
WHEN DRIVING ON WINDING ROADS.
MERCEDES NAMEPLATE IS PROBABLY THE ONLY
THING ABOUT THIS VEHICLE I LIKE, IN
ADDITION TO THE GOOD VISIBILITY
COMPARED TO MOST OTHER SUV'S ESPECIALLY
GOOD VISIBILITY OUT THE BACK HATCH
LOWER CENTER OF GRAVITY.
2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
The inspiration package is a must for
the dollars -- really wish I would have
sprung for the bi-xeon lights! The P38
package inspiration is true automotive
value in the upper-end car market.
Having driven a 2003 ML-320 for 1 week,
I couldn't be happier with the 350!
And talk about safety, the Greater
Omaha Safety Commission baby seat
installer couldn't believe the fit and
the option of belt retractors not just
in all 3 locations of the back seats
but also for the 3rd row seat seats as
Air bags everywhere! The BOSE system
is a must -- stock system really would
leave you flat. You gotta take your
dad for a ride in the SUV and show him
the touch shift trasmission -- your
gonna love it!
Side drink holder more accomadating for
water bottles / Radio control on
steering wheel and why is this the only
Mercedes without the SMART Key????
