ML has a heavy and sticky gas pedal.
By JBear on


2004 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


One very annoying problem that is
mentioned by many ML owners is the
heavy and sticky feel of the gas

It makes it difficult and uncomfortable
to drive smoothly.

MB service just says "that's the way it
is" there's no fix.

That is unfortunate because there is a
lot to like about the ML and this
problem is something that you
experience every single time you drive.

MB engineers need to drive a BMW and
experience the silky smooth progression
of the BMW throttle.

Best Features

Interior comfort. Strong motor.

Worst Features

Fix the lousy gas pedal operation. Make the A/C start blowing air quicker. Put the radio volume nearer the drive, it's a distracting reach to get to it.
