Unreliable overrated verhicle
By candiangold on


2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


- Balance Shaft replaced
- 8 sensors replaced in 8 month span
- 2 Ignition coils replaced
- MAF sensor replaced
- ECU Connector replaced
- Headlight wiring insulation cracked (and shortcut)
- The wheel wells are covered in some kind of fabric(?) which will come loose
- Rear bulbs keep burning out
- Subwoofer blown
- Rear windshield wiper does not complete cycle
- Interior vents adjusters falling apart (glued?)
- Ratting in left front door
- Rear hatch rattling
- Lots of rattling when interior is cold
- Seat Belt lock stops working
- Rear ashtray fell apart
- Idling erratic

I traded it in for an Acura MDX, what a breeze, no rattles, smooth ride, and all options standard

Best Features

this suv drives nice on winding roads between 80 and 120 km/h

Worst Features

- Too many to list - Most overrated and overpriced vehicle brand out there, if you only care to have the star on your hood go ahead! This car does not come close to a E-Class, it is not Mercedes, it is slammed together in the US with US supplied (subpar) parts.
