2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My ML320 model 2001 is a shame to the
SUV market. I had to take it back for
warranty works 11 times in 3 years.
Power switch console broke and replaced
3 times. Front windows jammed twice.
Rear hatch door rattle fixed twice.
Stalling still a problem after two
services. Battery died every year.
Power door locks broke three times. It
is a junk. I wont buy another mercedes
ever. Wrote to Mercedes several times.
There was not response in the last
three years.


Best Features

Smooth ride


Worst Features

Please discontinue selling this junk

2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my second ML320 and both have
been as good as anyone could expect from
an automobile both in performance and
trouble free operation. It is not an
AWD (all wheel drive vehicle) instead
it has permanent 4 wheel drive with a
low range. Since the 2005 ML's will be
uni-body construction with no low range,
I am purchasing a Mercedes G500 within
the year.


Best Features

The built in telephone and navigation package plus handling and acceleration in the 80 and above range.


Worst Features

none

Review

at first I was in love
with it but after about 5/6 months
things started to go wrong..the window
switch broke twice,the sunroof would
not close, the tires were losing air
ALL the time,the driver seat became
uncomfortable,the sound system would
crap out,the lights would dim,the
glove compartment door latch broke
twice,the cup holders are a joke, and
when it comes down to performance, I
always feel "uneasy" when driving on a
parkway at high speeds and
turning..fells like it might
tip..handles GREAT in the snow though,
but crappy in the rain..seems
very "delicate" and minor repairs are
very expensive.I simply can not wait
to get rid of it.


Best Features

Heated seats, great handling in the snow, nav system (for calling the mercedes center with problems,hee hee)


Worst Features

..redo the whole car :)

Review

like the ride,handling,power and
interior.Reliability is lacking.MB
unresponsive to numerous
correspondence.17k miles, brought it
back 4 times.Was told that's why you
have a warranty.i own a 12yr old BMW,
brought it back twice/both times BMW
main office called me. MB doesn't care.
Would never buy another one. Service
Pickup is a joke/have to wait 2 weeks
for a loaner car.not worth paying a
premium.build quality is below par for
a MB.


Best Features

handling/rides like a car (which is why I bought it).wife loves it.Interior is comfortable.Turning circle allows for easy parking.


Worst Features

reliability & build quality. Take care of your customers.cup holders are worthless.ability to open rear window without opening the whole gate. Trunk could be a touch larger.

Review

Bought based on MB reputation for
quality. This vehicle is a disgrace to
the marque. Poor interior build
quality and very poor dealer service.
In 2 years and 30K was at dealer 6
times for warranty (replaced window
tracks 2X - rattles,glove compartmen
and map pockets fell OUT, center
console top broke, Windows and sunroof
covered in Goo from iside door and
ceiling sheetmetal, Drivers seat panel
fell off. Dealer service even worse.
Stated work complete that was not,
Actually told me the ML was not built
to MB standards.


Best Features

Getting rid of the piece of junk and buying Volvo


Worst Features

Either build it to German standards or get out of this segment.
