Used 2004 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Review

Edmunds expert review

Still a competent SUV after all these years, the M-Class provides solid on-road handling along with excellent all-weather capability and a safe, luxurious cabin.

What's new for 2004

Late in 2003, the ML350 replaced the ML320, meaning a larger (3.5-liter) V6 with 232 horsepower supplanted the 215-horse, 3.2-liter V6 used previously. The AMG-tuned ML55 has been discontinued, while a DVD-based navigation system is now optional for the ML350.
