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


It's no secret the early MLs were plagued w/problems. By '04 Merc was trying to win back consumers and my ML was a great value. All the bells and whistles, no defects, price reflected poor reputation and turned out to be a solid performer! From formal outings to hauling kids, lumber, furniture and landscape rock - still looks good as new.

Best Features

Love the versatility, shocking performance for an SUV and at the length of a Honda Accord parallel parking is a breeze! Also appreciated the high, square cargo area and the fact that the rear wiper engages when I put the car in reverse when front wipers are on.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage and perhaps a little more girth would allow for an adult in the back with two child seats.
