Hi from Switzerland. My unreliable ML430 brought me here.

I have owned a couple of Mercs. An S320 (2001) which I sold due to continued electrical problems and ML430 (2000) which amazes me when it actually has nothing wrong! I've enjoyed:
-Failed window lifts
-Failed fuel door lock
-Power steering leaks and failure
-Squeeling brakes requiring regular replacement
-Rust galore (and returning rust to the repaired areas
-Water sloshing under the door sills
-Horn stopped working
-Warning lights that won't go out
-Power seat failures
-Fail rear door struts

That said, it's a good looking car and the engine always starts, though nothing else does. Oh - and it loves a drink. I have managed to cheaply repair many of these faults by consulting BenzWorld. Thank you. It was time to register.
