#506 of 742 2012 ML350
Nov 10, 2011 (5:56 am)
Just bought a 2012 ML350, msrp 53,530, bought at 46,500 (applied 3000 fleet employee program incentive). Used Mercedes finance, for Nov. mercedes has 1500 finance credit supposed to applied to first two payment. Need to wait till my first bill to confirm whether it's true.
Dealer has another car with beige inside color, but they want 1000 more for that car, finally decided to save the 1000 and live with the black inside.
There is 2000 conquest incentive if you're eligible.

Bought 7y/75k mercedes extended warranty for 2899 when I bought the ml350. Is this a good price? Dealer said the price for mercedes warranty is not negotiable, is that true? Thanks.
#510 of 742 ML 350 with OEM Towing Package, Need trailer light adapter
Nov 15, 2011 (11:54 am)
Has anyone had luck in finding an after market trailer light adapter for the MB OEM installed towing package? In specific a 7 to 4 pin adapter (7-4)
I've gone to countless U-hauls, and auto parts stores, but been unble to find a working trailer adapter for the lights. Called many MB dealers, no one sells any adapters. Seems lame that MB installs the towing package but does not provide, make or even supplies an after market adapter (whether it be a 7-5 or 7-4). I've tried adapters with no center/ground pin (no lights on trailer), and also with center/ground pin (only flashing lights, no turning or brake lights). Trailers are regular U-haul trailers. It's not the trailers, gone to over 6 U-hauls and tried over 7 adapters on over 20 trailers. So, it's not the trailers, nor the adapters. Adapters work great on rented pick-up.
Taken the ML 350 to two MB service stations, to check on the OEM lighting set up, they both say it's working properly (7-pin), but don't know which adapter would work. They offered to have their mechanics REWIRE an after market adapter, to work with the OEM towing package; of course for a 3-4 hour charge!
Right there, something tells me that they know that the MLs have a problem with the OEM towing package.
Any help on where to get a 7-4 adapter that works with the 2011 ML 350 is highly appreciated. In hindsight, should have not traded my Range Rover for this car. I do at least one towing every other month, and I'm S**t out of luck. Tired of renting pick-ups to do the trailering, when the ML 350 with OEM installed towing package should do.

zwy ok, I'm curious about the $1500 finance credit. Is that a credit you get if you don't use the Mercedes 1.9% financing deal, or is it a credit that you get in addition to the 1.9% ?
The reason I ask is some manufacturers offer either the low cost financing or a cash credit back.

A credit you get in addition to the 1.9%.

Thanks for the prompt response. It doesn't seem like Mercedes advertises the $1500, so I am guessing the dealers sometimes suck up the $1500 for themselves if the buyer doesn't know to ask for it.
