Americans don't still believe that Chrysler owns Mercedes do you?

RE: Favorite/Most hated Feature on any Benz?

Hate - The 12 volt cig lighter in the dash does not have enough juice to power our cheese fondue pot. We have to drain additional electricity from one of the rear seat cig lighters to ensure that the cheese remains bubbly and that a nice crust forms on the pot.

Love - However, when we are cooking Suki the one outlet is enough. And, the cup holders operate as excellent fondue fork recepticals.

Love- champagne just tastes better in a 1955 300SLR, the car does something magic to texture of the bubbles.
Hate- dealerships always assume you're a millionaire; almost anything you need done can be done elsewhere for less.

Please don't spill Champagne in the Mercedes.

99 ML320


Love: Solid ride at any speed. Bose sound system. Seat warmers (my old car was a 90's accord, so that means a lot), silky smooth powertrain with tons of power. Great 4wd in snow and mud. The fact that I'm driving a Mercedes at 17. The affordable mods.

Hate: Cheap door clips make panels vibrate. Rear hatch lock doesnt work. Burns oil. NO FOG LIGHTS!!! (IDK why, i just hate cars without them factory installed). Gas Mileage. Repair Expenses.



Overall, I absolutely love this truck! It has its quirks, and can easily cost me a lot of money, but right now I would do just about anything to keep driving this instead of the old 96 accord 4 cyl.

Its a bit petty, but I really dont like that if the fact the headlight wipers only come on when the headlights are on. I know....what difference does it make anyways. Pretty much everything else, I love about my benz.
