Got an e-mail today which I will insert below. I'm not sure what to make of it but I thought it might be of interest.
This has been copied and pasted from my mail inbox:
One year ago my Russian friend has bought the used car Mercedes-Benz ML270CDI from a serious German car-dealer.
He was very happy, because the car has many place and he could easily put inside of the car his mother togerther with her wheel-chair.
A few months later, the car has got some technical problems, which were solved, but recently thanks to GOD they did not participate in the car-crash on the federal road due to the not-reveal disrepair of the brake and the BAS/ESP system.
According to the information of the Russian car specialists, this kind of disrepair is hidden in the Mercedes-Benz ML270CDI, it is not possible to repair it and it is presented in numerous other cars of this model.
Now the brake and the BAS/ESP system in his car does not work correctly. He cannot use the car anymore because it is very dangerous and nobody can repair it in his region.
I decided to contact the owners of Mercedes-Benz cars, mass media agencies and auto-dealers from all over the world. I suppose that it is necessary for Daimler AG to immediately recall all the cars of ML class (W163) because I think that they can be very dangerous.
Mr. Aleksey Ivanov.
Not heard of a problem with these but, to be fair, I haven't seen many yet.
I would welcome your thoughts.
Cheers - Paul.

Either a hoax or someone with an unresolved grievance trying to make trouble. It's long on hype and short almost to the point of non-existence on substance.
