Interesting concept

http://www.forbes.com/sites/frederic...twice-as-much/


I feel better knowing my W204 was made in Germany and not the US, Mexico, or god knows where else. I heard that BMW 3 series are built here. How long until 3 series build quality drops?

Emotionally detached, no stake in the outcome auto workers are the LAST people I want assembling my 60-100k Benz.

Just a thought..

It was US-assembled ML320 that was the best Mercedes we ever own.
12 years in the family and only about $300 in parts that broke or wear out (not counting brakes and tires)

I sure admire their team concept and engineering skills. I hope they somehow maintain their QC measures here in the states. I guess time will tell.

The way many talk about Mercedes Benz of America, I can't help but be a tad pessimistic though.
We will soon find out.

It is going tough choice.
Have a car assembled by Turkish and Ukrainians in Germany, or by Mexicans and Chinese in USA.

I must have missed that part...lol. Perhaps MB factories aren't filled with tinkering Germans in a spotless factory of blissful ordnung. They certainly depicted that...
