RE: Why so Many new models lately ?
I am tired of hearing how all the new models are overcoming quality control issues. Such a farce!
Mercedes has been saying their new models were far better in this regard for several years. Maybe even the past decade!
They lie, and lie and lie some more. "The newer Mercedes-Benz models are better, because great pains were taken to achieve a high quality vehicle".
That's always their claim. They said that about the 211.
I was complaining about how unnecessary the SBC system was, and knowing Mercedes' reputation, how it would likely fail and cause a dangerous situation.
My crystal ball was clear that day, a year before the 211 debuted.
Admittedly, I was unfair back in 2002. But amazingly enough, and to my disgust, I happened to be right. I was chewed out by many Mercedes enthusiasts those few days I spent bickering back and forth about new-age vs old-age technology. But in the end....I rested my case with dignity.
Know that as long as Mercedes keeps introducing new models, and bastardizing their brand by sharing major parts with Chrysler, they will never care. For you, or anyone else.
