get out before warranty expiration
By redfearn on
1998 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD
my truck handles like a sports car, and
runs like the wind. however i who am
notoriously light on the brakes go
through a set of disc and rotors every
22000 miles. the dealership used
regular oil instead of synthetic in the
a and b services and it uses a good bit
of oil. i have replaced the
electrical controls for the windows
every year. and the a and b services
have increased in price from 79.00 for
a and 179.00 for b. to 179.00 for a
and up to 500.00 for b. i have noticed
that the trade in value of this model
hasn't held up as i thought it would
for a suv that consumer reports rated
as the best.
handling and power
redesign the power window controls.
redesign the brakes. punish mercedes
dealers that used regular oil in your
car that goes up to 14000 between
changes and tells you when to change it.
and rebuild engines that using such
oils have damaged
I am responding to your review on Edmond.com on 05/17/02. I am having many problems that other people are having the exact same key, ignition, replacing the whole switch box 3 times in order to work the windows and electrical problems with the 1998 ML320.
MB is telling me than my problem is rare which I am finding out is not true. They are also trying to charge me storage fees and want to charge me $6,000 to change out the whole system, as well as, repurchase more keys in order to use the new system.
If you could please contact me as soon as possible and perhaps give me copies of your repair records if you can obtain them or contact your repair place I will be very appreciative. Thank you for your time.
