I bought a 2002 Mercedes Benz ML270 diesel 4WD for $11,500 in September 2014, from a Brisbane used car dealer (around eight months ago) The vehicle seemed to be in good condition and the dealer did not say the vehicle had any issues. The following is a summary of the problems and costs to repair to date. February 2015: Diesel fumes into cabin, leaking injectors - Repair cost: $1,225 (paid) March 2015: Low power, auto gear select not working properly, air mass sensor failed: Repair Cost: $436 (paid) March 2015: Similar problems to above, low power etc. Induction pipe failed. Repair cost: $566 (paid) March 2015: Air conditioning system failed. Cost of system test & quote: $299 (paid) Cost to replace Compressor: $1,165 (paid) June 2015: Heater circulation pump failed. Estimate to repair: $1,000 (currently seeking a cheaper alternative.) June 2015: Engine performance diagnosis revealed excessive oil circulating through engine and building up due to failed rings or cylinder sleeve. This could result in complete engine failure. Estimate to repair: $6,000 (Cannot afford to undertake this repair) June 2016: Steering failed while driving. High pressure steering fluid hose failed. Replacement cost quoted: $1,800. Repair (to existing hose) cost: $563 (paid) Total cost of repairs paid to date: $3,955 Cost of repairs yet to be done: $7,000 None of these issues have been the result of poor vehicle maintenance or maltreatment of the vehicle. I now expect something else to fail each day and wonder what will be next. I would like to know if I have a case for any sort of compensation from the dealer. Your advice would be very much appreciated.
