Can't vouch for rest, but we did buy 2nd year of ML320 that was manufactured in Alabama.
For first few years the car was bashed right to left, top to bottom. Mostly becouse nobody in USA had idea how to adjust, God forbid repair digital cars.
Yet after driving it for 1 year we could sell it for $10,000 profit (due to long waiting line for new ones sold at fixed price).
The car lasted 13 years in the family, got salvaged at the age of 7 and still sold for over 4 grands after our son trashed it.
Beside accident repair, the 13 years of driving cost us about $350 in broken parts. Try to match that Lexus!
I am pretty confident that 18 years old truck still makes present owner happy.

I got a kick out of #6 : "Another winner from Benz’s Alabama plant."

Stir trouble up

This is one of those articles that was created just to stir trouble up. But then again, someone had to go and do it right? They would have to find SOMETHING to get on this list too even if our worst car is better than some of the other manufactured cars in circulation out there so don't worry too much about it and lighten up guys!

Heh. True enough. Also, Heckflossen have an appealing honesty, even (or especially) in their most humble versions, and the W219 CLS is viewed as a style pioneer by a wide consensus of automotive experts.
