I'm Glad I Own My Benz

Today while going thru the news I heard that GM recalled some 900,000 trucks. I would be scared to drive some of these new cars or trucks today because they might fall apart on you. Here's the link to the story:

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

I agree with you on the Benz angle, but this recall isn't scary. It's a common problem with pretty much all trucks that use a cable to restrain the tailgate.

RE: I'm Glad I Own My Benz

I remember the good old days when merc were mercs (W126/123 days) nowdays there isn't really that much which distinguishes our cars from others (often coppied and just as reliable).

I hope MB/DC get's their act together soon.
