I bought 2012 ML and ...

HI,

I bought used 2012 ML 3 days ago. During test drive (4km) I didn't notice any problems but after I bought and drove 150km I found that it's very bumpy (I tried sport and comfort modes). In turns, even on small speed, all passengers are lean in opposite direction. One customer explained this experience in his post as "I felt like a cork bobbing on the surface of choppy water while driving the new ML on normal, slightly bumpy suburban roads."
Am I stuck with this experience forever? Can it be fixed or adjusted?

Please advise.
Thank you.

No I didn't. What should I feel? What changes between Sport and Comfort modes?

The sport should make the suspension stiffer as sport cars while the normal mode is more soft on the road.

Suggest you check the tire pressures. Go by the numbers on the fuel filler cap, not the door pillar ones which are too high, particularly for 20-inch wheels.
