Not that it has to be high cost on all models, but the "fame" spreads and affect whole brand.
W211 and some S class - in some model years require replacement of SBC pump and airmatic bags what at dealer can cost 6-8 grands with additional jobs.
Those things happen about every 10 years and are luxury items, so should be expected, but too often "bottom feeders" who don't do their homework will buy 10 years old car for $3000 and then bitch on forum how the MB screw up the car that require parts replacement.
Yes, you should change oil on Mercedes too.
Not that I complain about the trend. Thanks to that I can treat my whole family to Mercedes and have very cheap transportation thanks to DIY
