Mercedes-Benz M-Class 4×4 review with expert views

The M-Class was one of the earliest 4x4s and is built with a chassis, like a Land The result is that it has a more blend of on- and off-road abilities many of its later rivals. So, the M-Class isn’t as good as the of the BMW X5 and Volvo XC90 on-road, it can them a thing or two away the Tarmac.

This means if you spend a lot of time on the road, be disappointed by its low-speed ride, body roll and cumbersome However, if you want a genuine you may be willing to put up with its shortcomings.

What there’s no doubt is that the M-Class has one of the most cabins of any of its rivals. It’s on a par the X5 for passenger and luggage space, and better than a contemporary Rover Discovery.

M-Classes are now widely but avoid Mercedes dealers to the keenest prices, especially on models.

If you can, go for a face-lifted from a 51-plate onwards. the car didn’t drive much after these tweaks, the to the materials and layout in the cabin a long way to answering the criticisms of the model.

With any age of car, the 2.7-litre is the best engine to choose, and with the automatic gearbox. As said, the car’s chassis is not the but its limitations are least obvious the less powerful engines.

The also has other advantages, as its better fuel economy and low-rev pulling power, is great for towing.

There’s a range of petrol engines, with the less powerful the best. Avoid the ML500 and AMG, which are too dear, and too fast for their own good.

Trade view

A reliable car, but watch for electrical and system problems

If you just want to get into a with a prestige badge, the makes a lot of sense financially. it’s been on sale than the BMW X5 or Volvo XC90, the M-Classes are several thousand less than the cheapest or X5s.

There’s not much to between these three for running costs, though. groups for the M-Class are almost the same as those for the X5, and no more a group higher than the Fuel economy and servicing look very similar,

However, it’s worth in mind that a four-wheel-drive car such as the Audi A6 Avant will cost much to run.

You can also expect bills if you need unscheduled Hourly labour rates and repair bills for Mercedes are the highest around, although the are no worse than those for and Land Rovers.

This version of the M-Class has the subject of two recalls, the first nearly 4000 cars in 1997, and issued because the seat belt could accidentally. The second affected 30,000 cars built in the years from April and concerned a possible loss of steering fluid.

Perhaps the worry for a potential M-Class is the damning reports from the M-Class finished in the bottom overall in the 2005 JD Power satisfaction survey, a very result for a company such as The biggest problems were the and brakes, but faulty seats also reported.

However, figures from Direct in fact show the M-Class owners make claims than average, the bills on those occasions can be high. In Warranty Direct’s the electrics are weakest point, for more than a third of all
