2013 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML350

Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.

The covering for the center console can bubble and discolor. Replacement of the affected part is most commonly only way to repair this concern.

If you own a 2013 ML350 and you have discovered hard shifting between gears when you took the car into MB Service Dept. did they know about the problem and just fix it or did you have to speak to the manager about the transmission problem. Did Mercedes Benz fix the problem.

Overall I really liked this 2013 ML 350. Mine was loaded with xenon lights, Harmon Kardon sound system, and keyless go. Definite musts. The only real gripe was the tendency of a smelly AC system due to bad design that permits mold to grow in the system. Changing the air filter is only a temporary and expensive fix. Only drove it 25000 miles so it was not too bad but actually got a 2015 mod...
