Review

We traded in a 1999 ML 320. We did have
some problems with it. Fuel pump, Power
Steering hose and Transponder. We
really like this one much better.


Best Features

More chrome, Power vent windows, Memory seat.


Worst Features

Do something with the radio controls. Steering wheel mounted.We have the optional Nav. system ans the volume knob is to far away.

Review

We traded a '02 ML430 with 78K that
was the best car we ever owned. Now,
the '03 ML500 takes top honors. the
drive is improved and the power makes
it handle like a sports car going up
hills. Great tow car, smarter trans,
and some new convenience features. I'm
getting better mileage than the 430:
over 19 mpg (mostly freeway) because
the torque just eats up the hills.


Best Features

I like the Xenon option, auto-up windows, larger fuel capacity and the new wheel design (they don't seem to get as black from the brake dust).


Worst Features

There's not much to add. I think they should keep this model, even after the replaement model that is scheduled for 2006. It's a classic.
