2013 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Problems

Loss of Power Steering Due to Leaking Steering Rack

It is not uncommon for the power steering rack to develop a fluid leak requiring replacement of the rack assembly. Loss of power steering fluid may also cause an abnormal noise and damage to the power steering pump.

Delay before crank start and no starting.

When turning the ignition key there is either a several second wait, or will have to retry.
Car has left me stranded, where key is in the on position but nothing registers and only auxiliary electrical works (stuff that works when no key in ignition.)
This problem started occurring after a service interval where half a dozen error messages required some steering parts to be replaced.
Knauz Mercedes kept the car for a week and could find no fa...

2013 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Reviews

I bought a 2012 ML350 bluetec in 2015 with 38,000 miles. The driver's side seat belt does not always work and the cigarette lighter does not work at all. The rear brakes had to be replaced at 52,000 miles at a cost of $800. Now, at 68,000 miles, the oil cooler is leaking and will cost over $5,000 to repair. The vehicle is out of warranty and the extended warranty I purchased will not cover th...
Overall I really liked this 2013 ML 350. Mine was loaded with xenon lights, Harmon Kardon sound system, and keyless go. Definite musts.

BTW, my 2008 CL65 with 21,000 miles needed front brakes and rotors and a ...
