2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
An ML500 Insp.(03)loaded. At 1,500mi
the "check engine" light came on, I'm
told the gas cap was not tight. The
problem persits. Took it back wks.
later & dealer changed something. The
light went off & later came back on.
Called dealer & car kept for two days.
I picked it up & light was out. Two
days later on, take it back & it is
now the catalytic converter. (at
4000Mi). Ask dealer & MB rep.what about
when car is out of warranty? The MB rep
& MB service mgr. say they'll "monitor"
vehicle. I went home to find out next
a.m. in my garage a leak (washer fluid).
The engine ROCKS, growls. That is the
ONLY good thing about this car.
EVERYTHING: Reliability, build quality,
comfort, all with exception of
engine needs to be redone. I am sorry
and sad for Mercedes Benz.
