'04 ML500 is Amazing Value!
By SoCal on


2004 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


After launching the world's most unreliable SUV in 2001 Mercedes took the ML took this project back and put significant improvements into each subsequent year. The 2004 is a solid truck with great towing, solid handling, great performance for its weight, and an outstanding daily driver. Unlike the X5, cargo space is tall and the cabin roomy. Bumper to bumper length of an Accord for easy parking and tight turning radius. Good in the snow, decent mountain climber and enjoys the twisties! Stay away from the 2001 but you'll benefit from the bad reputation in the following years and get exceptional value.

Best Features

Strong V8 power, high cargo area, fun to drive!

Worst Features

The new body style is a great change. 3-stage fold down seats can be made easier. Sunroof auto open and close settings baffle me. Why not one touch full open and one touch full close?
