RE: Low-quality Mercedes
Consumer Reports, when they reviewed the new E Class, gave it a good review but reported worse than average reliability. Not good since this is their bread and butter line.
The review went on to say that when most German manufacturers increased their production, they took quality for granted w/o taking into effect the reality of greatly increased mass production on vehicle quality. They think this is why technically equal Japanese cars have better quality than their German counterparts. They made the effort to assure quality and didn't simply assume it.
