1999 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML 320 3.2 liters, gasoline, V6


Wonderful SUV; rugged, lots of space, good performance, and very reliable


None. I have just done normal service and they have changed the necessary parts at the indicated times, and nothing has gone wrong. Everything has always functioned perfectly.

I can only remember an slight gasoline odour, that was immediately fixed by the dealer.

General Comments:

This has been a very good car and has seen a lot of off road, as my house is far away from paved streets.

This car handles and drives very well, like a car. I have taken it all the way to Northern Germany, when it was 170,000kms, and I could go at top speed very nicely, comfortably and safely.

The ML 430 of the same generation is extremely powerful and fast, I drove it once, but the ML 320 is perfect for every day, and it is also powerful enough.

At this age and amount of kilometers, I can say that this is a very tough SUV, very rugged, reliable, it seems it will last forever, as everything works perfectly. I don't plan to change it in a long time.

I think the driving is very much like in some American cars, it is their main market for this car, but with the safety of Mercedes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
