Finally the real M arrives
By emster320 on


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


For me, people who buy the M-Class are
well-informed, practical and have an
appreciation of the delicate balance
between luxury and utility.I was truly
impressed with the X5 but it didn't
have the M's cargo room/utility.Drove
the MDX-wide track, excellent engine-
but it lost points in the luxury
department (plus 3rd row seating is
actually smaller compared to the M).
Sequoia? Quite impractical for my
needs. Consider a vehicle that will
inflict the least damage to the other
vehicle-lower bumper and crumple zones.
Don't be persuaded by emotional
reviews. Do your own research and come
to a conclusion. Have a safe trip and
tread lightly!

Best Features

There's lots in the M: rain sensing wipers, folding side mirrors as well as the tilt feature to aid in parking, projector lamps, one-touch window controls (all four),TeleAid,17 inch tires standard and,of course,all the safety features (8 airbags,4ETS+,ABS, Brake Assist,Hill Descent)

Worst Features

It's got to be Satellite controls (for audio) on the steering wheel, more Bass on the sound system, annoying AudioPilot, second guessing adaptive transmission.
