Mahindra and Daewoo better than Mercedes S Class

Mahindra and Daewoo better than Mercedes S Class

Yes, you read correctly, in my case any of these brands of India and Korea are better than Mercedes.

I have a brand new Mercedes S Class 350CDI one year old and with a price exceeding € 100,000 .- standing in the official garage for two weeks waiting for a simple front bumper. Yesterday, I called Mercedes care costumer to denounce this situation and say they're sorry, but i must wait two weeks more. It is incredible and I never thought that a brand like this will give this situation, also do not offer me another car or replacement. Costumer value is the same=0

From Spain

Look at the bright side.
Bicycles parts are just around the corner.
This thread is worthless without given location.

So drive it without the front bumper. It will still look better than a Daewoo.

Inventory and supply distribution can be a problem with any make. Since you mentioned Mahindra I'll assume that you're in India or maybe Southeast Asia somewhere.

It can be frustrating but I've been stuck before waiting for parts from a company that's headquartered in the same country as me with a factory next door.

You could have a Bentley or a Suzuki and it can happen. All companies operate with a JIT implementation. It's been like that since the 1970s actually. Supply shocks are common.

I suppose that from any part of Germany, in the worst cases, not take more than two days to reach Spain, where I live
