Charges for FREE Roadside Assistance.
If your ML is under the normal warranty (< 50,000 miles and 4-5 years?), there will be no charge for the battery or labor.. I tipped the roadside assistant very good though..
This year my 2005 ML 500 died on my driveway because of a dead battery (only 1.5 years old). Roadside assistance came, and at the beginning, he wanted to charge around $180.00 or so, I mentioned that the battery, as a part, was under the general warranty and he did not charge anything..
I guess maybe when it is out of warranty ("non-warranty Roadside Assistance repairs"), then parts/labor is not completely free..?
2005 ML 500
Black, 18" AMG Wheels, 285/60R18 Yokohama Geolander HTS + Bi-Xenons(+ Drew's e-code mod, though the reflectors rusted off and do not give out much light anymore), Yakima roof bars, Akebono pads all around. Former vehicle 2001 ML 320 with 108K miles, when traded, and a large repair/defect history. After all these years of owning my current 2005 ML 500, it is a major unreliable vehicle with a very large/expensive repair/defect history and has been like this since brand new.
