"With over 81000 miles on this 2001 ML 430, I can't think of something that has not broken almost from the start. Navigation system, fuel tank line wire went, sound proofing came off onto all windows, moon roof, built in phone system, engine wouldn't turn over, engine belt snaped at low mileage, heated seated function twice, plastic around base of driver seat, running board lights, 6 disk CD player, brake system in rear had to be replaced, and on and on. Even with extended warranty, many things are not covered. Even the dealership couldnt figure out how to fix some of it and we were just stuck with the problem. I read and article that stated that 2001 was one of the worse years to purchase a MB because of manufacturing issues, and well, that is very true. Many of my family has had similiar issues with their MB (later years) but I noticed that the brand is so powerful, the fact that they "own" a MB outweighs the probem with the car. Not for me, I was foolish and made a big mistake by buying the car, something I will never ever do again."
