I own a 2000 ML and is still driving it. It has now over 12500 miles and it's still going strong. I use it mainly for work, and so far, i only had some minor repair. This is a very comfortable car and very safe because of the solid body. I am giving it to my son when he gets his licence.

A REAL SLEEPER

I LOOKED AT THE ML55 AND DECIDED I NEEDED MORE CARRY ROOM AND BOUGHT A RANGE ROVER. GREAT COMFORT AND ROOMY BUT WHAT A DOG. EVEN WITH A V-8 I COULD NOT GET UP TO EXPRESSWAY SPEEDS ON THE ENTRANCE RAMP. AFTER ONE YEAR, I SOLD IT AND BOUGHT A 2000 ML55. I LOST CARRY SPACE, WHY AN INBOARD SPARE TIRE?) BUT I GAINED HANDLING, SPEED AND BRAKING. WHAT A GREAT VEHICLE! NOT AS COMFORTABLE AS OTHER CARS ON LONG TRIPS BUT FOR COMMUTING IT IS GREAT. IT HAS THE PICK UP, SPEED AND BRAKING TO GET OUT OF TROUBLE. I AVERAGE 16-18 MPG WHICH IS OK, WOULD LIKE BETTER BUT THERE ARE TRADE OFFS. I HAVE HAD ALMOST NO PROBLEMS. THE MOST RECURING IS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH FAILS WHICH DOES NOT SHOW UP ON THE DASH BOARD. THE BRAKES LIGHTS ARE DISABLED AS WELL AS CRUISE CONTROL RELEASE AND THE TRANSMISSION LOCKS IN PARK. FORTUNATLY THERE IS A RELEASE FOR THAT. ALL IN ALL I WILL KEEP IT FOR A WHILE LONGER, IT HAS 134K MILES BUT KEEPS RUNNING. I LIKE THE TRANS MOUNTED SHIFT AND THE NEW MB SUVS HAVE COLUMN MOUNTED ONES. IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO PICK UP AN ML55 YOU WILL LIKE IT.

this car has great performance. I especially like the room inside the car. it feels like i am sitting in the 'first class" seat because of the over size chair and higher "roof". It is very reliable and i hardly had any problem with it. I plan to drive it for another few more years (it's already 12000 miles) and will trade in for a new ML.

This vehicle is everything the entry level Benz Owner could imagine. When you think of Mercedes Benz, you think quality, comfort, and convenience (luxury). The ML320 has it all. The handling and performance of this one is great in dry, wet, and snowy weather. If you are looking for a hot deal on cool wheels, this is the one for you!

Best SUV ever

by from Indianapolis, IN on January 23, 2009

This classy Benz is the best SUV ever! The handling is superb and the fit and finish of the interior is by far the best of any SUV I have ever tested. Very stylish and head-turning.
