One of the best SUV

by from Raleigh, NC on August 16, 2017

I bought this ML SUV used with 70,000 miles. I now have 250,000 miles and it still runs like new. Just keep the oil change and some small repairs. I plan to get 350,000 miles out of this SUV.

Decent car for the price

by from Leesburg, VA on June 27, 2017

Great car for what we bought it for. Have to keep up with maintaining the engine, but otherwise it runs great!

Love it! Smooth ride, beautiful interior

I have never owned a Mercedes- Benz before. I bought a 1998 ML320 and it's amazing! It has 182,000 mile on it and it runs and looks like it is still new! I highly doubt that I will ever be able to buy another brand of vehicle again. I am so spoiled with this SUV!!! I still can't believe that it was cheaper than all the other vehicles I looked at and is in better shape! I feel very lucky to have found this car at Derek Motorcar! They helped me find my dream SUV!

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.

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

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!

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. 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.

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.
