2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Has been in the shop for mulitple
malfunctions all addressed by
dealership on SEVERAL visits and Park
Place's Road Side Repair service. Brake
pads stink!! I am at 27,500 and told
the brake pads have 10% left? Set
number 3. 2nd set at 12,500 miles. Told
by dealership it is due to AWD and
common with their brake pads? This is
my first Mercedes. Never had an issue
with Japanese and US autos with AWD. To
spend 50K+ on an auto and having to
replace ONLY REAR pads for $311.00?
That is crap!! Designers, take
notice of the issues to keep Mercedes
image and return buyer.

Best Features

Interior package.

Worst Features

UPGRADE THE BRAKE PADS!!Competitors of luxury model SUV's don't have this issue. Although it has quirks, I have enjoyed it. Questionable that I will purchase another Mercedes due to my experience of continued high maintenance required to remain flawless. Manufacturer PLEASE listen
