#5753 of 8199 A-pillar squeaks re Cindy et. al.
Oct 30, 2001 (11:33 am)
Our 2001 ML430 had the same symptoms. A high pitched short duration squeak... somthing like a mouse but almost a chirp. The dealership re-seated the dashboard several times without finding the squeak. Finally, the shop received a newly released TSB for A-pillar frame weld breakage for the ML430. That's what it turned out to be. The welding repair is extensive requiring fender/light/liner removal, dashboard removal, and breaking out and replacing the front windshield. Our car was in the shop for almost three weeks. I have yet to see the Mercedes TSB on the subject but am trying to get it from the dealer. It should be dated early September. Hope this is helpful.

#5756 of 8199 I just got one!!!!
Oct 31, 2001 (7:13 am)
I just picked up my 2002 ML320 on Monday. It is Black Opal Metallic with Charcoal leather, Bose, and sunroof. I obviously haven't had it long enough to know of any problems, but it sure does drive great. I had a good buying experience at the dealership (RBM of Atlanta). There was no pressure and I got it for about $750 over invoice and they threw in a couple little accessories. I thought that was a fair deal for all involved.
Over the past couple months I have been reading this message board and there has been a lot of useful information. Since Drew left, there doesn't seem to be a lot of good information about the vehicles at this site. I hope we get back to the subject matter soon because it really does help a lot of people.
#5760 of 8199 Boy...I leave for a short while and things...

I've been a member of the Edmund's ML forum since 1998...I have never seen a more helpful, thoughtful, intellegent, "fact full" member as Drew. Even prior to him becoming a Host he was what held the board together...not to mention other forums that he participated here on Edmund's.
This is a place to discuss the ML and why we own them...I know for a fact that Drew is directly responsible for providing the facts and leading edge knowledge database that has helped numerous readers in making an educated purchase.
He will be missed deeply : (
#5761 of 8199 Extended Warranty
Nov 01, 2001 (3:11 am)
Need some advice on shopping/buying an extended warranty. How does one go about getting the least expensive one.. Can one buy from any MB dealer in the U.S?. If so, can anyone share their info. on the least expensive dealer with me. What is the price for such a warranty. Usually, Drew was the "go-to" guy but I understand that he has left and so have some of the regulars from the old days... sad.
Thanks for your help ... Raj
