Vehicle

2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Excellent vehicle overall, however a number of minor defects take away from the overall positive impression we have. Defects include: window trim that is fading extremely quickly/unevenly; rear windows which watermark w/o remediation possible; climate control fan system which randomly sends air to areas of its own choosing (noisy as well). Dealer resists repairing despite informing me these are "common problems" on ML 500's.

Favorite Features

Stereo system is wonderful. Vehicle handles quite well. 8-cylinder has great acceleration.

Suggested Improvements

Improve quality control on parts/systems mentioned above
