Never heard of a brand new car spending 2 months in a workshop and a month on the road. Amazing! Only the all new mercedes benz S300 can do that.
Our previous car was a Landrover Discovery, so we are able to compare. The 6 year old Discovery was more silent and we cannot hear the on coming vehicle sound at high speed.
When a car spends more time in a workshop and when you have to make numerous trips to the dealer which is located an hour away, it gets annoying. We went for a Mercedes for reliablity and safety. We were just looking forward to visit the dealer like our other 6 cars that we have here now for regular servicing at every 10'000 kilometers.
Today we have taken back the car and they have sweeten the deal with some compensation. We are still hopeful that the car will serve its purpose.
Sorry to hear about your experience. My hope is that your misfortunes will serve to teach others the lesson that when researching a car, it also behooves to research the support structure (or lack thereof, as appears to be the case with Siam) for same.
Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.
