Mercedes ML is a partial hit! 8+

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


This is basically a good SUV; at first
I thought it was too small and
uncomfortable and after 3 years I am
learning to live with the size, but it
is still uncomfortable ie, seats very
hard and suspension stiff. Mercedes
thinks (ha) that only off roaders buy
SUVs. Detroit also thought their cars
were fine twenty years ago too! At 95
miles per hour it handles like a
sports car and feels quite safe (I was
late going to the airport).

Fuel economy is good considering the
weight of the vehicle, about 5k lbs,
and the size of the motor. Pulling
our boat is easy and effortless and I
am glad I had the trailer package.

Best Features

All wheel drive is very good; no changing tires to snow tires. This is a good looking SUV and the front end still impresses me for it good looks and lines. Fully loaded with five people is no problem as the suspension is very stiff and therefore doesn't lean or wallow on corners.

Worst Features

Comfort is big problem; seats hard and not comfortable; Mercedes claims this is a lite truck which is no excuse; should lengthen 12 inches and make wider; about 6 inches which would help improve cargo and passenger room which is somewhat limited. Mileage could be improved as well.
