2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 5.0L from North America
Brakes, rotors, squeaking brakes, power steering pump, hanging shifting 1-2 gear, CD players, sunroof noise.
Those who are constantly replacing rotors/brakes at $700 up, purchase limited life time parts and find a MB certified mechanic. Parts $200 / Labor $170 = approx. $370.00!!!
After the initial parts purchase, your next parts replacement will cost ZERO DOLLARS!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Do your homework before you buy any M-Class Mercedes. Its reliability in many areas has been poor. The plant that builds them in Tuscaloosa Alabama, has had teething problems that need to be worked out.
Also, the same holds true with the R-Class model... If you find a good clean M-Class or R-Class vehicle, and your heart is set on it, make sure it has a good long warranty on it that covers everything... not just the powertrain...
