Ml320 Problems

Hi there, I've just taken my 01 Ml320 for an "A" service and i was informed of a number of problems with it. It was making a whining noise when it started up, which got progressively louder if you turned the steering wheel, i kinda figured it was the power steering. MB dealer said i needed a power sterring reservoir cuz it was leaking,a serpentine belt. I also need to replace the "Torsion Bar Bearings" which were cracked and last but not the least the "airbag/off" n "SRS" light remains on which they said is the pax seat occupation sensor which needs to be replaced What i find incredulous is that the warranty expired in August and I took it in for them to see if anything needed to be replaced and they said everything is peachy.3 months later i get all this that needs to be replaced ...did i mention CDN $2300.oo for just the parts? Would appreciate any info if there are any factory recalls with these things. The reason i didn't get extended warranty is cuz i'm going to trade this with another vehicle next year. Wouldn't be too soon, just had so many irritating "small" things with this vehicle,

We got the extended warranty just before the original went out. We paid $4k for 4 years 48k miles extra warranty. We are at about $2.2k thus far and have 3 years and 32k miles left to go. I am damn sure we will get our $4k and then some out of the warranty. Damn ML.

Ask to see the service manager and calmly, politely ask him to consider a goodwill repair on some of the items as you are so fresh off warranty.
Worth a try
