2004 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this Mercedes in May of 2003. I opted for the ML350 Inspiration edition. Its a great looking SUV with a lot of potential. In snowy conditions, the ML is right at home with excellent road manners and great maneuverability. The 3.7 V6 guzzles more gas than what i had anticipated, but it doesnt bother me at all. The interior is spacious and very luxurious, and the navigation system is top quality. The only issue i have, is that the control for the volume is far away from the driver. There should be steering wheel mounted controls. Other than that, its a great SUV and i love it!


Best Features

My favorite features are: Heated Seats Big moonroof Sport Seats Inspiration Edition package Navigation System 17" Wheels Xenons


Worst Features

The only improvements that need to be done, is to put in steering mounted controls for the radio, such as volume, seek channels and change from AM/FM to CD.

Review

My ML500 has seen Canadian winter (Toronto) so I can attest to its snow bound abilities. Excellent and fun vehicle to drive. Currently own an 02' Audi 3.0 6 Speed as well and driving the wifes' MB is always a pleasant treat. HID headlights are a severe nuisance to other drivers at night (their problem!). Only negatives are gas mileage SUCKS (you'll think you have a leak in your gas tank) and you'll go thru tires relatively quickly. Positives; great fun, excellent build quality, superior power (and I mean SUPERIOR), great all- weather vehicle offering outstanding stability and grip, also, did I say lots of power in that 5 liter engine yet?


Best Features

POWERFUL 5 liter V8! Outstanding V8 Power! Excellent all weather grip! Superior fit and finish! Competitive SUV envy/jealousy factor = 10/10!


Worst Features

Third row seating for adults.
