Cruise Control May Not Disengage as Expected

It has been determined that, under certain circumstances, use of the brake pedal may not disengage the cruise control as expected. All other means of disengaging the cruise control should remain effective. If the driver were to "pump" the brake pedal instead of applying consistent force, the level of force necessary to disengage the cruise control may be unusually high. Dealers will perform the repairs necessary to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin September of 2011.

2000 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Reviews

I love my ML320! First of all the leather interior is beautiful and has held up nicely with kids and dogs :). Secondly it has never broken down on me. I have had to do some minor but expected repairs, and its been a great car. It does take synthetic oil but you only have to change the oil every 12,000 miles so it doesn't cost any more than changing a regular car every 3,000-5,000, andf it saves...
You have no business buying a vehicle like this unless you have a lot of extr4a cash. It's a bouncy ride. The dealership is a rip off, as they all are. Parts are exorbitant. The need for hi test negates any cost-saving measures. And there are so maNY better vehicles you can get for much less money.
This is a great car. But there is a little problem with the AC and we have to recharge it. Where is the ac gauge so i can recharge it?
