Hello All,

I know two people who are having problems after problems with their ML's. Does anyone have any problem with MY06? If so, please let me know what they are so I can bring this issue to my GM.

Thank you,

Have had my 06 ML500 since Sept. It has been flawless with zero problems. This is my 3rd ML and by far the best one. I would rate it better than my 05 E320 4M or the 01 E320 4M that I once had.

The only problem that I have is with the Power Liftgate closing, which will finally be corrected on the 17th. Other than that I haven't had any major issues that haven't been corrected.

Haven't heard of any headlight issues. Mine has been flawless for 9 months and 9.5k miles.

Had my ML500 since feb 8th and its been fine. One thing is the electric liftgate not always latching properly. You can tell from the lit interior lights. Only 2500 miles but nothing else but praise for the handling and power.

ML500 won't start

I've had an '06 ML500 since September of last year. I've also had the liftgate problem which has been resolved. The current issue began about a month ago. The vehicle out of nowhere won't start. It has happened three times over the last month. It has been in service for a week this time waiting for a part from Germany. This is really frustrating. The dealer is on a deadline to get it fixed by tomorrow or replace with a new one but I'm not sure I want to jump into another one that might have some other problems.

I have had my 06' ML500 for just over 1 year and it has 11,000 on it. It has been in the shop 7 times for various problems, most recently the catalytic converters were both replaced. This is my second ML and my last.

It's difficult to troubleshoot when you don't post details of the failures. Some tips which apply to the older W163 ML are collected here:

If it wont start only when the engine is hot, then it's often the CPS:

Sorry - the biggest problem I have in my first 3000 miles of ownership is trying to talk my wife into letting me drive it (we bought it for her) and seriously entertaining thoughts of replacing my 95 E320 with a new one. It's just an awesome vehicle and we have had zero problems with it.

Thanks wolfgang


Mercedes is in the process of replacing the car. Basically the car was not hot when it wouldn't start. When you turned the key there was no sound whatsoever (e.g. no clicking) - radio etc. would light up but no warning lights. They had already replaced a mehanism within the starter and the same thing happened a week later. They then claimed something else showed up in the computer diagnostics and had to order something from Germany. A week later the piece they were waiting for had not yet cleared customs so they threw in the towel. Am no waiting for the replacement you would like to hope the problems wouldn't be repeated but we will see.

In my 06 ML350, I have had a problem with my CD player.....the volume would be muffled and then go back to normal, and then muffle.....they reinstalled the software. It's starting to act up again!
I have also had some sensor problems....damn airbags....I get that error message "SRS Restrain system malfunctioning. Drive to dealer". I'm bringing it in tomorrow.

Have an '06 ML350 since Novemeber with only 6,000 miles but repeated problems with the Light Senso, Been to the dealer 3 times and parts sent from Germany to fix it. Had the problem last week, been at the dealer since then. They say they cannot figure out what the promlem is and have even replaced the windshield! It is really frustrating.

What is the process to have them replace the darn thing! Other problems we have had include SRS malfunction the NAV display....grrrrrrr
