2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The 500 gets even better mileage than the ML430 that it replaced. The tranny is better and more responsive. Xenons, rain sensor wipers, electric rear quarter windows, folding mirrors, etc. . . . it offers all the features you'd want in an SUV. Lots of cargo space, and tows like a champ.


Best Features

The engine. It is the best powerplant there is. Wide footprint with 275s on all four corners. With good tires it stops quickly, even in the rain.


Worst Features

None

2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought a used 2003 with low miles and just love the way it handles the road, especially in the rain. The sound system and climate controls are superb.


Best Features

The cruise control and the heated seats


Worst Features

I've seen the 2006 ML500 and the headrests are designed to not get in the way. Plus the CD changer is in the glovebox vs. the rear cargo area.

2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The rumor is true, when you buy a
Mercedes you expect nothing less than
the best in everything; and that is
what you get. 2003 ml350 w/ sport and
comfort pkgs. Can't say enough good
things about the car, gets better gas
milage than expected! Truely the
classiest yet most fun to drive SUV on
the market. There is definately a
reason the star turns heads no I know
why! All of our expectations were met.

Sincerely,
Extremely Pleased Mercedes-Benz owner


Best Features

Bose radio, Power and heated front seats: huge moonroof


Worst Features

None!!! Honest to God truth!

Review

Shortly after purchasing this I got a
lot of flack for buying a 4 wheel drive
car that most people never take off-
road. Living in the desert I quickly
put them all to shame when I drove my
ML through a wash that 2 lifted pick up
trucks were currently stuck in and then
proceded to do a 12 mile treck through
the desert on a trail that was "Jeep
Recomended". This SUV is the best SUV
on the market. It has amazing off-road
capabilities, a very comfortable
interior, a powerful engine, and hardly
any problems. But, what else would you
expect from the vehicle the German
military relies on.


Best Features

Comfortable and roomy interior. Off- road capabilities.


Worst Features

The stereo is no good. The only problems I had with the car were due to the stereo malfunctioning. But Mercedes is always quick to fix problems in a very timely and curtious manner.
