Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 282008


  • 105,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Mercedes Benz ML320. For the past two years, the contact has taken her vehicle to the dealer to have the brake light switch repaired. When the brake light switch failed, the esp and ABS indicators illuminated. The vehicle would stop and the gear would have to be placed into park to manually override the warnings. Once the vehicle was placed into park, it would not move. The brakes lights do not illuminate, which is a hazard to the vehicles in the rear of the contact. The switch has been changed at least eight times, but the failure still occurs. The dealer stated that they sent an email to the Mercedes Benz manufacturer at least twice, but have not received a response. The dealer informed the contact that the regional manager would inspect the vehicle, but this has not yet taken place. The failure mileage was 105,000.

The exterior headlights on our Mercedes ml 320E have become very cloudy and rough to the touch. This is now a problem because they do not emit enough light to safely drive at night.

This vehicle has numerous defects, and has been in for service countless amounts of times. Mb promised to replace the vehicle if their factory representative could verify my complaints. They absolutely found numerous, redundant defects and now only want to fix the vehicle, rather that replace the vehicle. What a bunch of liars. The vehicle has issues with the steering system, the wheel rubs and the power steering fades out, the radio and cd changer malfunction constantly, fumes from the ventilation system, and when you hit a bump, the car almost goes out of control, even the esp light comes on.
