problem #3

While driving in heavy traffic at 45mph, the brakes automatically engaged and the electronic stability program and yaw rate sensor failed. I was narrowly able to avoid a serious accident. After searching many online Mercedes forums, this seems to be a recurring problem for 2000-2001 ml models and is related to NHTSA campaign PE07007 that was closed in 2007. However, the problem seems to be occurring more and more frequently now and grounds for a recall. The car is not safe to drive until fixed.

My ML320 has 101,260 miles on it and I have had to replace the center support bearing 4 times for this vehicle. I keep it garaged, service it regularly, and drive between 10K and 12K a year. I feel this is a safety issue and an issue with this vehicle and would like to know if there are any other complaints regarding this.
