2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
My new ML 350 now has 1000 miles on the
clock. 600 of those miles came from
traveling to the dealer to have the "
check engine" trouble light checked out.
Apparently fuel management system and
the emissions control system contains
unreliable components.Presently I am
waiting for new parts.A factory recall
for exchange of power steering hose
clamps was installed also. I very much
looked forward to driving a Mercedes
again. I owned a 230 for 15 years and a
280E for 3 years. They were great cars.
Pity that the marque has fallen so
much.I am afraid that I will not have
any confidence that I can take this
truck on a long distance trip.Bloody
Low gear. All wheel drive. Handling in
tight spaces. Stereo. Seats are very
good,one needs to get used to the built
in lumbar support.
change cruise control to on wheel
controls, ditto stereo controls.Change
the air circulation control light from
red to green to indicate that outside
air is indeed cut off and air is being
recirculated in the truck.
