Save your money, buy something else. Repairs are endless. Engine rebuilt by factory at 50K due to high oil consumption (was still under warranty), both catalytic converters replaced. Check engine light is on more then off. Factory brakes replace every 20K miles (dealer says it is normal), and window switch panel replaced 3 times. I've had other MBs, and this is trash in comparison. Nice looking vehicle, fun to drive, but the maintenance is terrible. I use a private mechanic now, put Brembo brakes on, and the brakes last much longer. Engine codes when it is not acting right aren't specific, so you go through a lot of trial and error in diagnosing problems.
Cool looks. Handles better then most other SUVs. The ride is nicer then other SUVs too. ABS works, too well sometimes.
Mercedes-Benz ought to learn how to make a world class SUV that is realible and lasts. Gee, you would think they would know how to do that! The 2000 ML320 is as close to a lemon as you will find unless you pick it directly from the tree.
I purchased this SUV second hand at the dealer last year. Purchased the extended warranty which seems to be paying off. it drives nice, looks good, and is fun to own. A little high on gas. Last year's repairs, $1200 before warranty
Style and drive. Drives great in the snow.
Gas mileage is poor. Drink cup holders are in the wrong place
This car costs way too much for all the problems I have had! In less than 2 years - moonroof broke, catalytic converter cracked, spark plugs damaged, new tires, new brakes, shifter bushing, cracking noise when braking/accelerating (bushing of some sort), harmonic balancer replaced, leak in transmission, CD changer broke, and the list goes on! I'm trading this car in for a reliable Honda! I would not recommend it to anyone!
Nice looking car. Friendly service at the dealership.
Bought a Starmark vehicle. Wonderful vehicle! Don't understand the comments about fuel mileage. I get better than the EPA estimate. What do you expect from a truck? Solid as a rock and not top heavy feeling like other SUV's.
Navigation system, sunroof, heated seats, powerful, fast, and smooth.
Bigger fuel tank, regular gas would be nice. CD changer up front.
Expensive to extend its life - Cayalytic converter cracked, shock absorbers in rear needed replacement, coil went out , spark wires replaced, new transmission fluid required to extend life (MB says no, dealer says yes), New fuel filter,...etc. $3,500 + costs - too much
