2000 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Problems

Welds May Crack on Front Catalytic Converter

An exhaust leak may develop due to cracked welds on the front catalytic converter. Replacement of the catalyst is recommended; re-welding of the catalyst is discouraged because it is an emissions device.

Brake Light Switch Failure May Cause ESP/BAS Warning Lights

The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern. A recall on certain 2000-2002 models have been recalled for a related issue - for more information please click here»

"No Start" Due to Drive Authorization's Failure to Recongnize Keys

A no start condition may develop due to an anti-theft system fault. If the drive authorization module fails to recognize the keys, the engine will not start. In many cases, a new module and keys will be needed to correct this problem.

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

We bought our ML brand new. Spent many weekends at dealer and TLC after warranty expired. First set of Dublop tires lasted 20K and driver seat heater overheated. I replaced windows switch twice, two door lock actuators, crank position sensor, transmission connector and power steering hose gasket. There seems to be a minor drain on the battery that I have to replace battery every three years...
Dont recommend buying one it's a money pit 3 fuel pumps installed problems with door locks,power window switches,had replace radiator due to cheap plastic part.ars,esp,and lights just came on problems with A/C.can't wait to dump this money pit.161,000 miles
320 k miles now!! ---good in snow and ice, nothing ever wrong, purchased with 40k, one sensor light always on but 22-23 mpg. it needs cat converter now, only work ever needed. interior has worn well. no head room if over 6ft 1 or so but a beast in the wet and snow. almost the match of chevy crew cab in snow.
