Long Live the Mercedes Brand....Not!!

2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
Nice looking SUV w/great power and handling. Quality leather interior and sound system. Plenty of room for SUV's in this class. Goes downhill from here. Squeaky brakes that dealer says is s MB problem and they put on free lubricant for 1 yr then you are on your own. Dunlop tires are inferior for a 50k SUV. After 20k miles and a loud ride, dealer says you need new tires and not to replace w/Dunlop. Stiff gas pedal takes a lot to get used to, dealer says they made the cable to short. Dealer nor MB Client Services will stand behind brake/tire issue. Agree with another reivew that MB will be dead in 5 years unless radical changes are made
Color, heated seats, power, rainsensing wipers.
Squeaky brakes, poor tires, stiff gas pedal, paying for service intervals and a manufacturer that will not stand behind its product.
