It's a cool commercial. Realistically though, most modern cars should be able to flip without killing everyone. Except maybe a Chevy Tahoe:

And yet you have not utilized the internet in citing your claim that MB needs to 'sort out its manufacturing quality'. You were boasting about acura, the new TL msrp's for $33-43k and the new c class msrp is $31-41k. and us news rated the c class higher

My sister-in-law has am '06 honda pilot that's always been dealer services and I was looking the her service records the other day. Would've never expected parts/labor rates to be so excessive My '99 Slk had terrible ratings from multiple sources when new and only $2300 has been spent in 'unexpected' repairs in 12years and almost 80k miles.
