1999 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD


Perfect truck for the young and single
to play around in...I can't imagine a
more prestigous, inexpensive SUV.

I bought the truck 3 years ago. It was
highly rated in almost every safety
survey and I could not imagine a better
way to protect my wife and newborn son
the road.
The problem, it rides like a
truck...Stiff suspension shakes the
back seat passengers on the mildest of
roads. Several of my friends have
become car sick (first time) while in
the back seat!

Young parents should avoid this
vehicle. Do not take newborns or young
infants in this truck due to the amount
of vibration their heads would endure.

Best Features

anti-roll stabilization side air-bags crash performance cargo area, fold down seats, etc

Worst Features

Bose sound system not very good. Redesign and build in Germany --ML made in the U.S. and not solid like other German models. Several systems failed in first 2 years (onboard computer, gas gauge, sunroof, transmission locked in 2nd gear, window switches fail)
