I guess that's a relative statement, correct? We have a 2000 ML320 and a 2003 C230 6spd sedan. We haven't had any problems with our ML at all. Maybe when the vehicle gets older, we'll start seeing problems, but as long as you get the StarMark extended warranty, you'll be good for a long time!!!Lynn said:They are supposed to be good at off road, but they are the most unreliable Mercedes.
