Safe, Incredible in Snow, Low MPG
By Dave on


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


Wonderful SUV. Built like a tank. 4-wheel drive is insane: went up in the mountains last new year, did not use snow chains because did not need to! I did not even know I was driving in snow, the truck is so stable! Watched other drivers in luxury SUVs struggling in snow as I was simply cruising along. Problems: no audio controls on the steering wheel (which was addressed in 2006 model), steering wheel is not telescopic like BMW X5, MPG is really 11-12MPG, even in V6. Cassette is hidden inside the entertainment unit which makes it hard to connect IPOD via a cassette adopter. CD-changer should be in front not in the trunk.

Best Features

Tough build, firm but comfortable ride, all-wheel-drive is incredible, feel very safe inside, Bose stereo is ok, not as good as Infiniti but ok.

Worst Features

Audio controls on the wheel, steering wheel - telescopic, cassette - open design CD-changer - in dash Ipod input, better MPG
