The ML320 is Dead - Long Live the ML350!

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


The ML320 is dead -- replaced by the
much-improved ML350. I bought the
Inspiration Edition and have been very
pleased. The upgraded interior
has sport seats and better leather,
both lifted from the ML55 AMG, and
wheels and tires from the ML500, which
make it handle much better on dry
roads than the old M-Class. The new
3.7 liter engine of the ML350 has
enough new power and torque to give
the M-class new vitality. It also has
terrific second-row seats that fold
perfectly flat to the height of the
load deck. I am very impressed with
the quality of the new M-Class
Inspiration Edition. It finally drives
and feels like a "German-made"

Best Features

Inspiration Edition: high-quality interior, great wheels and tires. Build quality. Performance of 3.7 liter V6. Integrated telephone. Many safety features. Lifetime roadside assistance.

Worst Features

Simplify radio/tape/CD/phone controls and put some of those controls also on steering wheel. Gas mileage (getting 15 mph in combined city/highway). Make all ML350's as luxurious as the Inspiration Edition.
