I am just back from germany where I met with a very high ranking mb staff, and voiced our complaint about the b cars.
first, it is germany not new jersey who is the problem. and
next, the b car will come to the states in 2011.
I will be the first on my block to add this to my fleet!!!!

MBUSA didn't want a "cheap hatchback" when Paul Halata was in charge in 2004 and the decision to import the W245 or not had to be made. The present MBUSA chief is Ernst Lieb, who was the head of MB Canada when the decision was taken to import the car to Canada.

The super-weak US dollar didn't help.

The new B Class will be based on a Renault/Nissan platform and be built in eastern Europe, so I am not convinced - yet - that it's going to be worth a serious look.
