2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML 430 Designo 4.3L from North America
An over priced lemon
Rear brakes and rotors were required after just 18,000 miles at a cost of $800.
Front brakes and rotors were required after 28,000 at a cost of $800.
The entire rear view mirror assembly has dropped off the windshield twice while driving.
Rear hatch lock has been replaced twice.
Rear window wiper motor and washer has been replaced twice.
Drivers side and passenger side power window switches have failed and been replaced.
Heated seats will roast your rump to medium rare. This has been fixed once and will need to go back in once again.
Rear bumper came loose during a car wash.
Glove compartment broke and required replacement.
Drivers side cup holder broke and required replacement.
The annual brake and rotor maintenance bill will average nearly $800.00 yearly.
The quality of the car is horrible for the cost.
I should have bought a Lexus.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
