They seem to have already started working on their quality issues. If the new S is an indication, material quality is back.

My concern for the future...looking at the current and next generation cars AFTER warranty is that many are going to become trash because we have seen that their value decreases after 8-10 years to a point where 2-3 owner buys the car but won't be able to maintain them. With current Benz, parts are still within reason, pricewise, for the 124, 202 and even 210 cars.

With the new cars and their $5-8K Comand Module, much more expensive electronics, computers, etc, all to be bought sans warranty, many folks will just not get the cars repaired, further depreciating their value as they are traded in to get rid of the problems. Add in proprietary parts, which will leave out third party parts suppliers, and their ability to keep prices down and the formula is right to take most of the cars we follow and make them nothing more than disposable commodity


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
