1998 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 4dr SUV AWD


Like many of the other reviews, so many
electrical issues, especially in the
cold weather. seat warmers take forever
vs other competitors. windows not
functioning (bad switch) was the
biggest pain in the a**. so many
interior noises (buzz, squeaks, rattles
& wind noise). VERY CHEAP looking
interior. also had transmission issues.
my job consists of entertaining and
driving customers around and i am
constantly embarassed with this
vehicle. never again. MB just lost
another customer.

Hello, I am responding to your review on Edmond.com on 03/24/04. I am having the exact same key, ignition, replacing the whole switch box 3 times in order to work the windows and electrical problems with the 1998 ml320. They are telling me than my problem is rare which I am finding out is not true. They are also trying to charge me storage fees and want to charge me $6,000 to change out the whole system, as well as, repurchase more keys in order to use the new system. If you could please contact me as soon as possible and perhaps give me copies of repair records if you can obtain them I will be very appreciative. Thank you for your time.
