2001 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz ML320? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your ML320 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your ML320 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my ML320 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 ML320’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mercedes-Benz's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
