2007 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 from North America

Summary:

Not worth it, choose an RX350 instead

Faults:

Teeth on camshaft gears are falling, causing the timing chain to slip at 90 000 km. To repair, the 7000.00 engine must come out.

General Comments:

Looks good, but not worth it.

Over engineered, too costly to repair.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Ugh, I'm coming from the opposite direction... Transmission died on our RX350, and Lexus would not replace it, only rebuild, and after they gave it back, the transmission doesn't feel right at all. It's getting to the point now that I just want to get rid of it before the warranty expires, and the ML350 was on my list.
