ML has a heavy and sticky gas pedal.

One very annoying problem that is
mentioned by many ML owners is the
heavy and sticky feel of the gas
It makes it difficult and uncomfortable
to drive smoothly.
MB service just says "that's the way it
is" there's no fix.
That is unfortunate because there is a
lot to like about the ML and this
problem is something that you
experience every single time you drive.
MB engineers need to drive a BMW and
experience the silky smooth progression
of the BMW throttle.
Interior comfort. Strong motor.
Fix the lousy gas pedal operation.
Make the A/C start blowing air
quicker. Put the radio volume nearer
the drive, it's a distracting reach to
get to it.
