2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


In 1998, after watching Jurassic Park
featuring the original ML320, we headed
towards town to wait-list and buy it.
Big mistake. They were so rare that we
weren't able to test drive. Only
through broshures. Our #1 ML was full
of problems, so Mercedes offered to
trade us to a '99 ML320. The
instrument panel (lower) collapsed
mysteriously, and the trunk hinge
rattled like crazy. Traded in for
a '02 ML320. The new bumpers look
worse. I should have got an X5 or
RX300. I currently also own a 2002
S430, and it's WORSE than the ML

Best Features


Worst Features

Take away the one-tone bumper. Annoying and looks more like a minivan! REdo COMMAND and just redisign the ML completely, and build it in Deutscheland. Mercedes does not belong on Alabama!
