RE: MB's Anemic Sales because of Quality Issues
First of all, my "faith" to the star, is they provide me with a living. i am a technician. although you see the problems that your car has everyday, i see the problems that everyones cars have, everyday. i must tell you that most of what i do everyday especially on the newer cars (which is what this thread is about) is electrical. i take it that you drive a 210 chassis? yes, the window regulators do break. every car ever made has some sort of chronic problem. not everyone experiences it, but they are out there. on to your transmission complaint. most transmissions that fail are not maintained properly. people extend service intervals, use the wrong fluid, dont fill them properly , or neglect to change the filter. but heres the bottom line to everyone who reads this, and has had problems with their vehicle. ITS MAN MADE, ITS GOING TO BREAK, ITS GOING TO BE SOONER OR LATER!! if whatever it is broke with 25000 miles on the car, think of it this way, it took you around the world... or close enough. oh and by the way, tiggerfink, i searched online with mercedes, and there is no bulletin out for 230 chassis sl's wheels, or problems with them. what kind of "overspray" i think you said, was it? if you could, can you post a pick of it? i would like to see it.
