problem #4

Vehicle won't go into park, drive, neutral, or reverse when I push the button to tell it to. Vehicle's turn signals don't turn on when I move the handle up or down to try and turn them. It handle clicks as if it is turned on but blinkers do not turn on. Almost got hit by another car when this accrued because the blinkers didn't come on and the car didn't see that I was stopping. Very scary and dangerous since I have two small children.

2010 Mercedes ML350 led style brake lights fail gradually, one led or one row at a time, gradually diminishing the brake light intensity. Both the right and left brake lights are failing in the same manner. The hazard of losing vehicle brake lights is obvious.

The ignition switch needed to be replaced because the car was not able to identify the electronic key anymore to the tune of $1,300+ on a four year old car, at this price point is ridiculous! additionally, a new key was needed.

ML350 6-cyl Diesel

As described above. Instead of blowing a fuse, fuse housing melted from fire and heat requiring replacement of the entire housing with all fuses and relays. I brought it up to Mercedes Benz attention and their response was as the part got replaced at this point it is only an "alleged" problem. They do not want to accept their own service mechanic 's description of what happened. I am afraid this car has all the potential of bigger fire hazard and potential for accidents and deaths. I am bringing this to your attention only because you may have prior reports on this make and model and I am doing my civic responsibility it was unfortunate 14 people have to die with GM ignition switch problem.
