1998 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD


Living in the heart of the Colorado Rockies I am surprised at how my ML320 performed in unforseen conditions on back forest roads, however I wish at times it had a bit better off-road capabilities (ML has the same clearance as LR Disco). My driver window regulator too went bad, a $200 repair. Also the check engine light has came on, if you get your codes read and it says fuel trim malfunction, there is a 95% chance your Mass Airflow Sensor needs replaced (located on the air intake hose just after the filter going to the motor)This will cost anywhere from $180-300 depending on where you get your parts but is an easy DIY when you have the part. Good overall SUV if you can afford well mantaince

Best Features

Lots of room for entertainment add-ons under rear seat (DVD player ect). Love the look, could use more chrome. Great for long trips.

Worst Features

Benz, stick to your quality reputation and dont skimp out on cheap plastic parts. Larger fuel tank, or better MPG.
