Only MB not built in Germany!
By AlexSeng on


2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I've had my ML320 for 6 months and it's
been at the shop for 4 times. The
problems were 1. Gear shift Stuck, 2.
Back seat could not unfolded. 3. Low
range malfunction. 4. strange siren
sound from under the foot well (MB
dealer could not find the cause). I
just got a letter from MB that there is
a recall so I need to take my car in
for the fifth time. The service
advisor at the dealer told me she's
seen a lot of ML320s with poor quality
and said it might be because they are
built in Alabama instead of Germany to
cut cost. One of my friend bought a
Acura MDX at around the same time and
used to envy my MB, but now I regret
that I bought my ML320.
