This is my first foray into this forum, while looking for information on the reliability on MB.

I saw that we have some lively discussions, and started to jump into the fray.

Forgive me for not properly introducing myself so no one thought I was some other person.

So tell us what kind of car(s) you have and where you live!

We promise not to pry, after that. Not much

So the board room makes all the decisions and apparently 99% of their decisions are wrong. To top it off, this reinforces my opinion all along that the bailout must stop and the Big 3 must go. Not to mention they are also the biggest road block to small start ups with alternative fuel vehicles that many inventors have been struggling to put to market.

Nothing personal--just facts as I see them...
That would be because I truly dislike what Bushie has done to this country for the past eight years. His ineptness has cost more in terms of money and lives and credibility than ANY Administration in the history of this Republic.


Watching this country come off the rails for the past three years because of Bush Economic Doctrine decisions is just plain sad. Too many people got hurt for folks to support that Bushit.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
