Oklahoma City, OK

i was driving my ml430 on the highway when all of a sudden my power steering gave out and my car started to overheat. i managed to "strong arm" the car, (hopped a curb mid-turn) and pull over into a local grocery store. what my dealer had diagnosed was that the harmonic balancer was disconnected and the crankshaft pulley assembly came apart. i'm afraid that if my wife had been driving the car at the time the circumstances may have been more severe. since the pulley came apart at such force it also managed to rip a hole into my oil pan. all in all i'm looking at a $3000 repair to a potentially deadly problem. when i contacted the dealership they told me that this was a common problem and offered to present the issue to mb and request help for the repair. "common problem!" .. i thought to myself. mb came back with no assistance since the car was out of warranty. i don't understand the lack of responsibility and ownership mb is taking on their brand. the whole reason i purchased the car was for quality. i'm saddened to wonder how many lives are potentially in danger due to this common problem and what it would take for mb to become proactive and take responsibility. *la

the harmonic balancer on the crankshaft of my mercedes ml430 vin# 4jgab72e7xa09375 failed w/o warning causing the fan belt to fail and the balancer started cutting a hole in the oil pan. this failure just by "luck" did not cause a moving accident due to loss of electrical and power steering, or an under the hood fire. this cost me $500 to get fixed when a $70 part could have been replaced if i had only been notified of this frequent failure on mercedes models like mine. the dealer was little help in solving this problem.*ak

the harmonic balancer on my 1999 mercedes ml320 engine type m112 failed and resulted in $4,000 to repair. the part failed with no advanced warning. even the mercedes dealership who performed the power steering recall two weeks prior to the failure did not spot any problem and they knew to be looking. i was lucky the failure occurred in my driveway backing out of the garage in stead of on the freeway with an immediate loss of power steering or destruction of the engine.*ak
