Not a valid poll
Like most polls, this one is not really valid. It offers you only one response and few people have only one reason for purchasing anything. It would be better to not have a list of answers, but let each person enter his/her reasons. Or be able to select all reasons, but poll does not have some of the ones I used.
For me, prestige is probably most important differention to select an M-B, but the improvement in reliability of the E class over the past couple of years, the quietness of the car and the comfort of the luxury version are almost as important. Without the other two, I would not have purchased the car.
You can also add in the exterior and interior styling and features of the 2010 model as deciding factors. I turned down a really good deal on a 2009 because I did not like styling and features were not up to this car's class.
BTW, I could have gotten a fully loaded, top of the line Genesis V-6 for $36,000 but turned it down. Very nicely equipped car at a very low price and M-B could learn a few things from them re: features, but in final analysis it is still a Hyundai and has not proven itself yet.
