Quality guru with automotive experience.
I bought my first MB last October - a 2003 C240 4matic wagon. Love the car. Got a great price on the car at I bought it at a large dealer here in the middle of Michigan - Land of Chevy's! The car was on the lot for over 6 months!
The car has been fantastic! Owning VW's previously, I was happy with German engineering, but the MB - WOW! This car drives like a dream.
I worked for a supplier to Daimler-Chrysler and when I went to the plants for a visit, the employee parking lots are divided as follows: Front parking - American and Daimler makes, middle parking - other American makes, and the back 40 - all other foreign vehicles. It was interesting that at one of the facilities on the east coast had half Mercedes, and half domestic Chrysler products in the front lot!
Looking at a new CLS550. Should be buying mid August. Loved the car on the test drive. I won't be trading in the C240. My neighbors will be envious!
