Pros

230,000 miles on my ML320 and still running strong. Great vehicle but obviously the normal flaws for a 16 year old vehicle. Less power and fuel economy than a comparable modern car. Surprisingly great off-road

Cons

Sub-par fit and finish. Plastic bumpers.

Good Ol' Babe — Great car, has served my family well for many years. It was my first car and was great for me. Good sound system, adequate power, great off-road performance. A solid vehicle in most ways. I would recommend it to a friend

An Amazingly Reliable, Safe, Fun, Luxurious Car — I have a 1999 ML 320, which was my moms car but was very recently passed down to me. This car is an amazing vehicle and currently has 198000 miles on it and is 15 years old. There has never been a issue regarding reliability. Living in New England with the awful winters, it handles exquisitely in the ice and snow (especially with the low range button for blizzards). I think it is very comfortable. The leather is very comfortable, high quality, and extremely durable. The dashboard is a soft-tex material too which is very nice. I think my parents bought it with the premium package and an upgrade to a BOSE stereo system which still sounds great today. Also, I have plenty of leg room and head space when sitting inside the car and I am 6'1''. For performance, it may have only 215HP but it uses all of them and accelerates pretty quickly for its age and weight. The engine creates a a lot of torque and we have successfully been able to tow a boat (towing rated for 5000lbs). If I need to merge onto the highway really quickly it will accelerate extremely quickly if you floor it. Handling is impeccable. I've recently taken it off-roading and it had no problem (which I would expect because this model was used by the german army for military stuff). Maintenance from what my parents have told me was somewhat annoying. Although there are things that just need to be replaced throughout the life of a car, the catalytic converters would break alot in both of my parents mercedes (my dad has the ML350) which sucks because they're made from platinum, therefore making them very expensive ($2000). However, it didn't have to go to the shop very often for repairs. Rusting isn't really a issue. The only place where there is rust is along the trunk handle (which is a small area) and a little along the handle to open the hood. Overall, this is an extremely well-built, well-engineered, high-quality SUV and I definitely intend on staying with Mercedes-Benz when I am older and mostly likely buy and ML for myself.

Love This Car:) — Nice car to take a long trip, very spacious, back seats fold Down and Up in many configurations. Nice solid ride on the road, great visibility. Love the styling and Mercedes-benz quality. Great curb appeal, roomy cargo area, reliable engine performance.

Pros

Love the look with stainless steel step rails and brush guard.  Great capability with low range  four wheel drive.  Like 3 split seat backs in 2nd row. Engine purrs.

Cons

Driver's seating position and sloped hood makes one feel like your in a minivan.  Interior quality is not up to par.  Looks "Stubby" w/o step rails and brush guard.  From rear it looks like a minivan

Good All Around Vehicle, With Decent Durability. — OE brakes don't last long and dust heavily. Ride is truck like, but thats what it is. Handling is good with such a high center of gravity; it feels well planted to the road, and gives the driver confidence. I like the fact that Mercedes USA, continues to notify owners of 10+ year old cars of recalls, when they spot a potential flaw. Unfortunately, it did not have any leaks until the dealer preformed a preventative recall fix for the power steering. The Mercedes dealer is not consistent with there inspections, and like any dealer, not very competitive with independent shops.

I Absolutely Love This Car!!! Great For A Young Professional Starting Out!!! — Appearance- classy and bubbly Build Quality- Anything with a Mercedes symbol is bound to be pricey to fix or maintain. I definitely got my money's worth with this vehicle. Performance-This car is so well built and handles fantastic on the road. I had to travel alot for work and this vehicle was my Smooth Sanctuary on Wheels.

Great Value For The Cost. — Great value. Perfect family vehicle and much more cargo space than you would think. Car handles well and has a smooth ride. This car will comfortable seat 5 adults and two small children with the captains chairs installed and you still have cargo space in the rear. I would purchase again!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

This car is really fun to drive and if it were not for the fact that I got a new one I would not even think of getting rid of it. It will truly be missed.

Cons

My family got bigger and it got a little tight for us. So in this case bigger was better for us. (LOL.)

Really Fun Car — The brakes are in great shape. The car really handles well in traffic and on the road. Its a quiet ride such as the one that would be expected from mercedes benz. .A joy to own and drive.Great car to drive and own. It gives you the power that you ask for when you need it for passing or getting on the freeway and it really rides like a car that is much bigger.

Great Car And A Real Head Turner — Really like this car for the simple reason that it took a lot of work to make it different from every other Mercedes 320 suv. It has been well taken care of,, and the new engine is a big plus.

Very Classy And Practical Suv, Priced Reasonably Used. — Extremely practical SUV, good quality and longevity with proper maintenance, seems ageless, Trans did go out after 100K, Power steering can be noisy and leak fluid, easily resolved through proper purging and reservoir change, would but another used M series with low milage.
