Off Road for Many Miles
By Kokopelli Jim on


1999 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 4dr SUV AWD


We have owned this car for about 60,000 miles, and had an extended warranty through last year. This car has been driven through city and country, with many miles off-road locating petroglyph and Indian ruin sites throughout the Southwestern United States. This is our third Mercedes and we have driven them an aggregate of over 250K miles, so I am somewhat biased toward the three pointed star. All of the suggested service was performed and the additional repairs required have totaled less than $1,000 which included the new platinum plugs at 100K miles. I would buy another one without a second thought.

Best Features

The turning radius is nice and tight. The compartment under the passeneger seat is also a nice feature. The power and growl of the engine in passing Lexus SUVs is also a very favorite feature. It is also a good sight to watch other offroaders look at you while trekking offroad.

Worst Features

Change the placement of the cup holders and reconfigure the rear deck. If possible, boost the miles per gallon; but please keep the power!
