Unsafe ML350 (2014)

Just had my 2014 ML350 towed to the dealer. Very scary situation---drove in very slushy/snowy conditions on the way home Wednesday. Thursday morning SRS system light came on, drove very short distance, parked until had time to deal with issue. Today, started to drive towards the dealer, literally every sensor light came on (SRS, parking brake, engine light, tire pressure, etc. Speedo/rpm's fluctuated wildly) transmission acted up, stayed in 1st gear, etc. Headed back home, got stuck in the car since it would not shift out of gear, so I sat there with my foot on the brake and could not turn the car off! Finally it engaged into Park, but still would not shut off! Eventually got it all shut down. This car is terrifying! $65K for an awful, awful over-engineered, under-performing vehicle. Bought this hulking beast specifically to drive in winter snows yet it seems it can't handle the environment. I have notified MB and the Feds since this is a potentially life threatening safety problem, so we'll see if anyone listens. I would like to hear from anyone with similar experiences...thank you.

How cold was it outside ? Did you park outside overnight ? Is this the gas version ? How many miles on your truck ?

Parked outside, 20 degrees, 20k miles, 1 year old. dealer has it now, awaiting a part...rear radar assembly(?) dealer said it was corroded causing all the electrical to go haywire. In my opinion this car is a train wreck...I would never, ever buy another MB

I used to live in an area where pot holes and roller coaster asphalt pavement was the usual course of "normal". I didn't know what a smooth street was until I moved to Texas. Seriously.????
