Mercedes reliability truely bites -->
I will never forget this past sunday, we had a big northeaster on sunday , 3 ft of rain and my freak e500 (w211 '05) had an electric issue, alternator or the electronics just stopped working , car just stopped working (while driving) nearly 25 miles away from home. Lucky for me I jumped off the major highway 10 seconds before it blew, then
I used to read others complain about reliability, and I used to brush it off as 'not a big deal' , but until you've actually had to live through this experience with an unreliable car, You won't be making that mistake again.
I got a ride from my family member at 1 in the morning.... the repair bill was in the thousands as the warranty just expired..
so far the new X5 , 3 , cayenne have the greatest customer rating.. after this experience, I can see why sales have fallen like a ski slope from 2003 onwards at MB....and frankly they deserve whats happening to them...poor product = your going to get slapped.
