2000 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 4dr SUV AWD
I bought this thinking I would own it
for years and put 150,000 miles on it.
Five months later I'm trying to get rid
of it. So far its spent 20 days at the
dealership. The shops been great, but
the problems keep coming back. Power
steering quit twice. Brakes quit
(pedal to the floor) and took over a
week to fix. Replaced shocks, brakes,
all with less than 40k on the car.
What's worse is that every time it goes
to the dealer they have to air ship
parts from Alabama. Appearantly they
are type specific for each car. I love
driving the car, but I can't imagine
the repair bills once it goes off
warranty. Would I do it again? NO!
