Sticks like glue to the pavement
By Greg Lynn on


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


I owned an Explorer before this and this
vehicle simply outperforms the Ford
except in highway ride feel. The ML
bounces a bit much on long highway
cruises like a short wheelbase
sportscar. But overall this vehicle
rocks. The way the ML sticks to the
ground is unsurpassed. The advanced ABS
and traction control make it act like it
has glue on the tires under ANY
conditions. I mostly drive in rain and
while other vehicles slow way down I
simply keep on trucking down the road at
freeway speeds with full confidence.

Best Features

Traction control, ABS and V8 acceleration on independant suspension from heaven.

Worst Features

Cup holders useless. Put ruise control on steering wheel. Improve Seats. Build quality poor on body parts. Climate control is spotty. Front lighter 2nd socket in bad spot. Need more legroom in front; Seats should adjust 3 inches more back. Rear seat mechanism is horrendous.
