To my knowledge, Mercedes Banz does not exist as a registered Company anywhere in the world. I recommend that you sharpen your finger or gray cells. Mercedes Benz, if that is the question, is a registered trade mark of motor cars, trucks and other vehicles and products manufactured or marketed by Daimler AG, a German Corporation headquartered in the Stuttgart area.
Among the ventures sought by Daimler was the purchase of Chrysler. This was doomed to failure for maintaining the same management who was not apt to sell Mattel vehicles, less alone the more competitive cars and trucks of America's #3, due to poor design, bad quality standards and QC, and a chain of dealers who could not gain faithful customers with their shady ways without giving away the farm. Add to this the animosity of UAW to an European owner, and an owner who did not understand that making, marketing and selling American cars follow an entirely different set of parameters and public than MB and their customers. So after swallowing Chrysler, it had to be ejected like a hot potato.
Now with Renault-Nissan the playing field is more level, and who knows if the Alabama experiment will not get into this picture of cooperation.
A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.
Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
