A "Champ"
By Jeff on


2004 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


My '04 ML350 is my 4th ML; I was hit a 55 head on in my '99 and was uninjured. These are incredible vehicles, best safety available, great on/off road. Lacks come luxury features and mpg is horrible even w/v-6. Tight turning ratio, good seats; very heavy and capable. If you want a SUV that is very safe, handles well, comfortable, holds and tows lots of cargo, this is a great buy. The newer models are even better driving, but lack the turning ration and low range gear for extreme conditions. Drivers need to be aware of how heavy it is when braking and anticipating turns. The amount of steel and safety features are simply unavailable elsewhere. Eats tires and brakes, but stops very well.

Best Features

Balance of cargo/passenger capacity with great urban characteristics for parking, turning driver's position and safety. Airbags for all passengers. Grips the road in rain, snow, ice, gravel. V-6 with V-8 tourque and acceleration. Lots of convenience perks like dimming & folding mirrors, great trans.

Worst Features

Needs more luxury features like controls on steering wheel, power lift gate & key-related features as on those Benz vehicles built in Germany. Most of those have been addressed in newer models.
