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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Classy and practical

Cons: Noisy doors.

Absolutely Superb! — Yes, initial problems, but stellar v6 engine, particularly higher torque to HP ratio (1.1 or so). Can't get this with the new ML's except v8. Result, super easy acceleration (not ultra fast but effortless) and good gas mileage (20+) for 4 wheeler. Superb high speed highway ride and handling (100 mph easy). Surprising off-road capability (seems to go on the toughest paths). Can't get that now in US. New ones prettier, faster, but less capable off road. Best of the best.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: superb engine, off road, on road, gas mileage, handling (ultra tight turning circle)

Cons: initial quality problems, some lesser quality interior treatment

My Mercedes-named Her Lucy — We've had her for 10 years now, and she still runs amazingly. It was my mothers, and now its mine, and i could not hope for more. She's smooth to drive in. She doesnt squeak or rattle, but she did need a few repairs. To be expected after ten years! and the repairs were less repairs, more updates. like new liquids and new brakes.

Pros: Shes smooth to drive, good quality(long lasting) has good space, but isnt a monster on the road

Cons: she gets around 18 miles to the gallon (guesstimation)

Jessie — She is solid and reliable original engine and tranny with 215,000 very not bad. She will be 10 yrs old this december. She is a little rough around the edges. Great handling on the road for an SUV. Off Road not much ground clearance. I have driven and '03 more car than truck like mine. The '99 can take big bumps no problem little one not so good. The '03 is opposite. The '99 is very bare bones no frills lite and functional. Good car. The new ones well a lot more complex and the electronic shifter on teh column is wierd. I would not recomend a new one an older used definately

Pros: 215,000 miles and still kickin.  Mechanically sound.

Cons: Electrical not great and maintenance is pricey

Strong Suv — Cool truck but not dealing with age well. The newer SUVs make it seem anemic. I have been doing a lot of towing lately and this truck/SUV is not really that great for full size car towing. It is awesome in any type of weather though. The truck will take you anywhere you want to go in total comfort and style... as long as you don't need to go hyperspeed.

Pros: Comfort and Capability

Cons: Interior Trim Falling apart

Ml320 —

This car had extreme problems when we first go it, up to about 50K miles, but now it has 140K and has no problems whatsoever, which is very good, though we take good care of it. Anyway, it is equipped with Mercedes' "112.942" 3199cc Single-Overhead-Cam 90-degree V-6, 10:1 compression ratio. It really is a stellar engine in terms of power delivery and the specs really hide its true potential. It is 215 brake horsepower at 5500rpm and has 233 pound-feet of torque at 3000 rpm. One particularly cool thing about this, as with many Mercedes models, is a 3-valve per cylinder design. This means that there is one inlet valve for the air-fuel mixture and two exhaust valves, which provides a more thermally efficient engine. The transmission is a 5-speed automatic with selectable gears, 1-4, and "Drive." It has full four-wheel independent suspension, with double wishbone front and multilink in the rear, with stabilizer bars both front and rear. It has rack+pinion steering with 3.6 turns lock-to-lock and it does the thing where the front wheels angle, with the side being turned towards going into deep positive camber, which gives a great turning radius. It is full-time All-Wheel-Drive, which makes the gas mileage not so great, but you can definitely tell and though I've never exactly driven it off-road, I'm sure it could hold its own. Anyway, I've heard that the newer models are even better and much more reliable, so I'd say if you need and SUV and can afford it, this is a very viable option. Other cars to consider: Infiniti FX35/45, Nissan Murano, Lexus RX350, Acura MDX, Mazda CX-9, +more. Email me if you really care that much. I'd say, its pretty much between the Infiniti FX series and this, and both are available in V6 or V8 configurations. Anyway, Thanks for reading all of this technical stuff, (even though I didn't go into too much detail haha). Oh and its 0-60mph time is supposedly nine seconds even.

Pros: Very Stable, Good handling for an SUV, very well set-up suspension, extremely tight turning radius, great interior, full-time AWD, predictable braking distances

Cons: only 215hp, bad gas mileage, only a casette player came stock (in a mercedes?), kind of heavy for my liking though it is an SUV (4400lbs curb)

A Mercedes To Impress Girls. — Well, The car itself is great with AWD, but unfortunately, the gas of this car is much expensive rather than the regular one. But this car is great to impress Girls, to see that hey!!! I'm a big time.

Pros: Nice Wheels

Cons: Too much spark plugs to used (V6/12 Spark plugs)

Great, If You Can Afford The Gas. — One of the best riding SUV's I've ever been in, doesn't give you the excessive bounce of lesser suv's. Engine is slightly underpowered (a 4.3v8 with only 270hp) but has awesome torque (300 ft/lbs.). Gas mileage is TERRIBLE. 5100lb SUV with a v8 and full time all wheel drive is great in the snow but absolutely terrible on gas (13-16mpg, maybe 18 on CC on highway). Sound system SUCKS. When replaced with better head unit and 2 12" subs, it is excellent. Huge sunroof, tons of room inside, can fit 3 large adults quite comfortably in the back seat. Lots of room for all your stuff, great ride height, excellent visibility, a blast to drive for an SUV.

Pros: Visibility, great ride (for an suv), utility, best looking SUV out there with small appearance
mods, excellent in the snow.

Cons: Gas mileage, stock sound system, expensive to repair if not under warranty.
