ML 500 Inspiration Edition
By Dan Steinborn on


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


We bought this SUV new (it is our first, and only, SUV). It has always been very reliable and has provided us with the hauling capacity we needed (moving household goods and garden supplies). It has been comfortable on trips and for in city driving. Fuel economy is not this model's forte--it's a heavy vehicle with a large engine. Even though we are light footed, our in city fuel economy has always been between 12 and 13 MPG.

Best Features

Cargo capacity, heated seats, parking assist with passenger side rear view mirror (it tilts down in reverse, if you want)

Worst Features

The new ML 320 BlueTEC is the drive train of the near future. Much more fuel efficient. I think a diesel-electric hybrid drive train would be even better.
