Mercedes-Benz ML500 recalls

 

For Models: Mercedes-Benz ML320, Mercedes-Benz ML430, Mercedes-Benz ML500, Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG

Engine, March 31, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz ML320, Mercedes-Benz ML350, Mercedes-Benz ML430, Mercedes-Benz ML500, Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The hose clamp used to secure the power steering fluid hose at the cooler may not provide sufficient clamping force, resulting in a power steering fluid leak. Loss of power steering fluid can damage the power steering pump and may result in diminished power steering assist, which could lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering hose clamp to correct this concern. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2005 050004.
