2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
I replaced my 1999 ML430 with a 2003
ML350. Improvements have definitely
been made with regard to ride and
handiling of the '03. The 2003 has a
softer feel, though I do receive more
engine noise than the ML430. My two
biggest gripes are the same as those I
have read in other chat rooms: no
stereo controls on the steering wheel
and poor fuel economy. Other than that,
it's a great rig in many, many ways.
Dealers are very aggressive with
pricing on the MLs right now, too, so
it's a good time to buy!
Probably the safest SUV on the road,
which is very comforting. Great stereo!
Heated seats come in handy in Minnesota.
Stereo controls should be included with
a vehicle that lists for $43,500! A
couple more MPG would be nice, too.
