ML goes up in smokes
By dyoon001 on
Vehicle
2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Review
My daugther spilled some water in the back seat and within minutes, the wipers went wild (couldn't turn it off), the windows rolled down by themselves and various warnings signs came up on the dashboard (i.e. brake fluids malfunction). Then, smoke started to rise from the passenger side. This all happened while driving. How do you design a vehicle that malfunctions like that with a little bit of water spill? Why is the electrical panel located underneath the passenger side seat? What is the electrical system better protected? I think this should be a design defect and warrants a recall.
Suggested Improvements
The electrical system on the floor needs to be water-proof. The newer 2012 ML has a better panel covering with white foam to absorb liquids but this was that the case with 2006 model. This should have been recalled and fixed because they replaced the cover without letting me know.
