2001 ML - 430 problems
By Bob E. on
2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 AWD 4dr SUV (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
I bought the vehicle new and now have a total of 23000 miles. The brakes were replaced at 22500 miles due to excessive noise [squeel] the new breaks also squeal bad have tried everything to quiet them down. Replaced the drivers heated seat. The GPS system stinks. I advised the dealer of a loss of water in the radiator and was advised that I needed a new water hose, six months later the hose came in that I had paid for, however no water leaked during that time. After many calls they finally gave my money back for the special order hose. No heat in the floor, dealer advised to shut off dash vents? Wow is this quality of MB or a page from a Model A Ford. All of my cars are garage kept.
Other than the above coments I love the ML-430
Improvements that I would suggest have been made on the '07 models, better gas millage, relocated cup holders, better GPS system etc. However, I would not buy another vehicle with a built in GPS
