Gearbox / stearing problem

Hi there.
A...I never had a Merc before. When I bought the car I thought that is the best car in the world. However day by day I'm discovering new small and big problems. The gearbox (6 Manual)has a serious problem with the first and second gear. Somes times the gears refuse to work and I'm trying two and three times to get the gear done. In fact this problem exist from the very first day , when I collect the car from Sindenfilgen. After visiting the dealer in my home town Larisa Greece for six times (Thats another problem) he told me that there is propably a prodaction failure and the factory is ready to announce a technical guide in order to fix that. ( There are a lot of taxi's using the same gearbox with a lot of Km on the clock and the problem is biger to them). So, is there someone to confirm about the technical guide.

B... Every time I drive this car I have my arms painfull. This car never go sraight. I need to play with the stearing wheel all the time. I have the ''sport cassis'' option installed, and the 17'' wheels with tires 245/40-17 back, 225/45-17 front , and I 've been one time so far for wheel allignement but nothing has been change. Any idea for that. I'm relly displaisand from the car and beleive me or not I preffer to drive my old NISSAN GTI.
Sorry for my long msg, but I;m really need some help. Apreciate.
Sorry also for my english.

What do you mean when you say that the car does not go straight? Is there a drag or a pull effect in a particular direction?
