SIMILAR MODELS TO MERCEDES-BENZ ML

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MERCEDES-BENZ ML (2012 TO 2015)

Diesel engine in the BlueTec version of the ML may suffer from a stretched timing chain as the vehicle covers higher mileages.

So, check any high-miler carefully as the timing chain is at the back of the engine, making replacement fiddly, time consuming and, therefore, costly.

The timing-chain tensioner on diesel models could also create an oil leak where it entered the engine. An O-ring was blamed for this. Diesel MLs with a 2014 build-date were the affected cars.

This model was also caught up in the Takata airbag recall, so check with a Mercedes dealer to confirm a particular car's status.

Despite the prestige Euro badge, these vehicles were actually built in the US and quality wasn't always uniform. So check that all the electrical gear works properly.
