  • Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML 4dr SUV AWD. We were shopping for a used SUV of far newer age but found this M-B ML really cheap at a small local used car lot. The ML had been sitting idle for about two years.

    He found it to be kind of truncated, as if the designer was running out of paper when he was doing the back end. I own both and ML. As we mentioned previously, Ray has never cared for the looks of the M-Class. It should stand still or move back but in no case should move forward. First question is what wo

    Mercedes-Benz ML Reviews and Owner Comments

    The ML is the large-engined version of Mercedes-Benz's luxury sports utility vehicle. And, quite frankly, it underwhelmed us. Perhaps it's the burden of expectations: In any case, consider us underimpressed. The ML is an all-wheel-drive, V8-powered, four-door sports utilityvehicle introduced for the model year. The M-Class comes in three variations. There are lots of good things about this vehicle. The ML has a horsepower engine that's quite powerful.

    Its acceleration and braking are top notch. And, as is usually the case with a Mercedes vehicle, you feel safe and secure in it. It's solid, thick walled, and very competent.

    And we have to give the ML credit for doing an outstanding job in the snow that fell on Our Fair City during our test period. So what's not to like? Well, in a word: If the road you're on is the least bit uneven, you're going to have to hold tight to the steering wheel.

    The ML seemed inexplicably thrown off by potholes and bumps. Comments about this vehicle's bump-absorption ranged from "stiff" to "putrid. The on-road shortcomings of the ML were particularly apparent after a stint in a decent-handing Volvo Cross Country station wagon. So it isn't fair to compare two vehicles as different as these.

    In comparison, on the same pothole-infested roads, the ML felt like a handful. The ride is particularly disappointing, given the cost of this vehicle and the great reputation that Mercedes has for road manners. And in our experience, the suspensions on SUVs tend to get sloppier over time.

    We want to reiterate: It's not that this vehicle is uncomfortable or lousy in any way. We didn't drive the ML and the ML side by side. But we didn't remember disliking the ML 's ride quite so much. That may be because the ML is heavier up front, due to the larger engine. It may be due to different tires. In any case, our impression this time was that the ML rides too much like a truck.

    The seats, as in all Mercedes vehicles, are firm, supportive, and comfortable. The interior materials look and feel expensive. The third-row seats are really only sufficient for young'uns. You run the risk of making an enemy for life of anyone over the age of five who's forced to spend time back there.

    The back seat, on the other hand, is acceptable, while there was good room up front for driver and passenger. Cargo room is only adequate. Even without the third row of seats, there's not much space for cargo in the back. Mercedes could address the space problem simply by adding a foot or so to the vehicle's length, which -- according to Ray -- would have the added benefit of improving its somewhat stubby looks.

    Of course, Ray's wife says if he added a foot or so, it would improve his stubby looks too. Because this is a Mercedes, it has a lengthy list of standard bells and whistles, including side air bags, air conditioning, power locks, powerwindows, heated seats, a roof console, cruise control, an outside thermometer, tilt wheel, and even a first-aid kit, for when that careless barista drops a steaming-hot latte into your lap at the drive-up window.
