Angry ml430 2000 extreme brake drag melts pads

we bought a new ml430, we seldom drive it, the brakes drag so much that metal melts out of the pads and sticks on the alloy wheels, what a mess! i called the loco benz dealer and he suggested driving forward and brake hard, backing up and brake hard. this does no good. any suggestions other than buying a Nissan Pathfinder?

Try different types of pads, post a question on the 164 forum;
