I am glad I searched this forum for "build quality" and saw this thread. In my entire extended family, no one owns a German car and everyone either drives a Honda or Toyota. Before I ever wanted an MB, I was in love with the Acura Legend (1995 was the last year for it).
But I've always admired an MB and this year finally have accumulated the funds to purchase one. However, I am uncertain if MB continues to build a quality product. I am mainly interested in the W164 or W212, but then heard of the balance shaft issues with the W212. Out of all the German cars on the road, I like MB's style and footprint on the road.
But I would hate to purchase a late model at a substantial cost only to have paint peeling, loss of power and camshaft magnet issues.
