I currently own the 2007 ML350. When i drive it, i dont feel any problems at all. Every once in a while the car doesnt shift automatically to the next gear. It takes a couple seconds. But never felt any jerking or lunging.
lawing, you should not get the 2008 ML just yet. if possible, wait until may or until the 2009 ML Class is released. It looks sooooo much nicer. look it up or go to this link below for some pics of it.
The 2009 ML will receive a facelift as well as minor changes to the rear as you will see in these pictures.
#107 of 125 06 M 350: endless expensive repairs
Apr 15, 2008 (7:04 am)
April 15th, '08 QUESTION: IS THERE ANY HISTORY OF LAWSUITS AGAINST MB FOR POORLY MADE CARS? The latest update: dealer wants $4000 to DIAGNOSE problem noise, which seems to be in the transmission. That will make $10,000 in 12 months! Connnecticut car, purchased new. We've seen it all...thousands for brake rebuild, a rim and tire replaced ($1500) from turnpike hazard (non-warranty repair, which, dealer says, was changed in subsequent MB warranties because of OUR CAR! (Damaged rim has been on display at the dealership the last 2 years, to show buyers how great the warranty is on the new Benz!) There is much more, of course. An expensive car that promises plenty and doesn't deliver, and offers no dealer/MB support. So: anyone familiar with either lawsuit or a helpful ear at Benz? Any suggestions, aside from quiuckly getting a Lexus?

Is it possible to get an update from this fellow? Time has passed, and he may have perspectives which would be useful for me. Our cars were both purchased new, and he was already -then- having transmission problems. We also spent a fortune repairing power steering.

Some of the early 2006 ML's had tranny problems, but it seems they have fixed that problem... my 2006 ML350 tranny has been fine from day 1.
I had a power steering and suspension part replacement that was covered by a recall notice, but they were never problems.
Why was your power steering problems not covered by warranty?

I have a 2006 ML 350 and a couple of months ago I started to have the same problem with the transmission. The car is at the dealer at the moment and they will let me know an estimate tomorrow. Is this a normal wear&tear problem? My warranty is over.

your warranty should not be over, 4 years 50k miles - whichever comes first. Have you done 50k miles already?
#113 of 125 should I buy 2006 ML350 or 06 R350? what price
Mar 13, 2009 (10:25 am)
Trying to decide between R class with 9K miles or ML350 with 22K ...dealer wants 30,900 for both..I can't afford this much..do you think I could get either for 22K???? Also which car is better...seem to both be bad on gas?
I need help..I always leased but trying to be more frugal..what should I offer? I can provide more details if needed..thanks

Hey there, New to the forum. Looks like everyone is super helpful- so thanks for that upfront. I'm curious to see if anyone has any thoughts on the above models that I'm considering. I'm in the market for an SUV/Crossover- and have already ruled out the Lexus RX, Porche Cayenne, Range Rover and the BMW X5 due to personal taste. It's down to the above- and would love any insight/opinions from people who have gone down a similar comparison road. Thanks!
