2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
The M-class is a disaster. My car
arbitrarily stalls since the day I
rolled it off the lot. Unfortunately,
the only time it does this is when I'm
entering a busy road and need pick-up.
Repeated trips to the dealership
revealed nothing...except a waiting
room of other angry M-class owners
experiencing the same problem.
Computer's been updated three times.
My friends with C class cars are having
similar problems. My guess is that
Mercedes tried to make a lower priced
vehicle for the "masses," and
unfortunately, sacrificed quality.
There are many SUV's out there for the
same price-without the kinks.
TeleAid (you'll need it!)
Correcting the acceleration glitches in
the computer system, better cup holders
(under the air vents) because the
current ones aren't deep enough and the
drinks fall out during turns, stronger
A/C (Mercedes A/C weren't made to
handle South Florida summer heat)
