I took my '08 ML63 to the dealership today to take advantage of the No Charge Tire Rotation before 6500 miles (my car detailer on Sunday pointed out how worn my front tires were compared to the rear!) My Service Advisor told me that Mercedes issued a recall for the 2008 ML (maybe it affects the 06 and/or 07 too, but since mine is an '08, he told me my car is affected). It has something to do with rear electrics (rear hatch, lights, interior lights, brake lamps....). Honestly, he didn't seem too informed on the matter, but did show me that my vehicle is affected. He said a part has to be replaced, and some sort of software upgrade will be done, and it takes at least 3 hours. I have an appt. to have it done on Friday. I've noticed NO problems at all, and he said that the majority of cars are not having the problems. I guess Mercedes has noticed it though, and wants to stay ahead of the problems. My SA said that Mercedes' big goal is to never live thru another dark reliability period like they had from 2000-2006, so they take no chances. Back to the tires...I was told that AMG models normally only get about 10k-12k miles on the tires, where a non-AMG model can get up to 30k miles (even more). Looks like in about 5000 miles, I'm going to have a VERY expensive tire bill. Sucks!!
