new owner of 04 ML 500 sport with drivetrain questions

I bought this ML500 when I was owkring in Chicago. I had 72,000 miles on it and had always been dealer serviced. I have questions about general operation, like - is it supposed to rev high at freeway speeds ? I get a vibration, that comes and goes. I have 4 new tires and brakes appear to be good. The rear gate latch has a malfunctioning switch, i had to disconnect in order to get my compass back (I actually had to explaing this to the parts desk at the dealer and had to explain why I needed a new switch) My radio sometimes does not have sound. The rain sense wipers seems to have no clue when its raining My headlight filled with moisture after the first night of rain.

Otherwise, I really like this thing.
