Bought this vehicle with 128,000 on dash got rid of it at 142,000.. very well truck only did oil change, ride was very bumpy i got rid of it because the Cadillac converter went out and did not want to fix it.. very good overall... repairs are expensive... oil change is 100... so think about the price you paying compare to the competition and maintenance

Best dependable car for the dollar

This car is excllent for children who need a full view from the back seat. Hauling groceries, luggage, cargo and other things you must keep out of the weather is a pleasure with this car. My four wheel drive makes it a piece a cake to leave the road and endure mud and high water. Super vehicle! Great on gas! An interstate dream!

Trading Down

by from Indianapolis, IN on March 23, 2010

The end of my car lease was coming up and I made up my mind that I didn't want any more car payments. So I took my savings and went searching for the best car I could find for $5000 or less. This is what I came up with and I'm pretty satisfied. There are a couple of problems with it but given the age, that's to be expected. The one thing I would caution anyone about who was considering the vehicle? Make sure you can deal with the poor cup holder situation.

Tremendous value in used SUV

by from Salt Lake City, Ut on July 29, 2010

I've owned an identical car for the past five years. It had 136K miles when I bought it and 202K now. Repairs have been modest, parts are expensive but I have a good mechanic who keeps it to a minimum...
I've owned an identical car for the past five years. It had 136K miles when I bought it and 202K now. Repairs have been modest, parts are expensive but I have a good mechanic who keeps it to a minimum. It is tight, reasonably quiet and solid on the road. Full time 4-wheel drive is amazing in the snow and in everyday handling. The finish of this car is gorgeous. (original) Ten minutes at the car wash and it is like new. I totally recommend the 1998 M-class MB.

A Quirky But Decent SUV

by from Lincoln, NE on November 11, 2016

My ML320 is a pretty decent SUV as luxury SUVs go, but it does have some shortcomings I can do without. My driver's door will not lock or unlock with the key (keyless entry fobs not included with car)...
My ML320 is a pretty decent SUV as luxury SUVs go, but it does have some shortcomings I can do without. My driver's door will not lock or unlock with the key (keyless entry fobs not included with car), the flap for the dash vents for the heater make a loud knocking sound, and the fuel gauge registers empty after I fill the car although it corrects itself in a few days. I understand these to be common problems with the M series Mercedes. Aside from these annoyances the ML320 is a reliable car that starts, runs, and drives very well.
