1998 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD
Drives wonderfully, but in 1 year
we've replaced the wiper motors twice,
had the driver window fail, the
electrical system short out and had a
rupture to the power steering fluid
hose. Starmark doesn't cover much of
anything and the service department is
second class compared to BMW, Audi &
The power of the car is wonderful and
for an SUV, the mileage can't be
beat. Great roadtrip car!
The power window controls continue to
confuse me and reliability is suspect.
I am responding to your review on Edmond.com on 12/27/02. 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.
