My ML350 kept blowing it's brake lights. After awhile of this I realized that something was obviously wrong. At this point both lights were out at the same time. I took it in to find that the sockets were burnt out and needed to be replaced. I was then told that the wiring also needed to be replaced and Mercedes Benz had a fix for it all but at a price. I was also told that the C series had a recall for the same problem. Why are there no recall for the ml or the M series?

Less than a year after I bought the car, during month of April 2014, different error messages started to appear on dash including ABS (brake system), SRS (air bags), and steering wheel vibrating, hard to turn wheel, a few tail/parking lights not working. At shop, they said sensors were bad, and due to my extended warranty they replaced the entire power steering system ($272) but said to repair the air bags would cost $800. A different mechanic said under $100 to fix air bag sensors. Now, August 2014, trunk lift motors are konking out and the lock is not latching, pops open while driving, have to pull over to shut before everything falls out. Also other motors for windows and sunroof work intermittently. When turning left the parking brake sensor light pops up on dash....also out of the blue one day the whole gps system was blank, totally wiped of all info destinations, history etc from past year, only a map shows now.

Atm at bank was not operating and was going inside bank, at regions bank in hendersonville tn. When car was shifted from park into drive the car took off at a high rate of speed, that could not be stopped by braking. The result being, hitting two cars, when trying to go between them, then still couldn't stop until nose dive in rock lined four foot ditch.
