I'm glad to hear something good about MB quality. I was looking at the Consumer Reports car issue and MB was 3rd from the BOTTOM! Only Jag and Land Rover were worse.[xx(]

Here is the link to the PDF with the complete results. Perhaps someone that can read German can explain how the rankings were arrived at.

Here's something interesting

The bulk of the document lists common problems for each vehicle. For the SLK, lists the following:

Generator defekt (bis 2000) [Translation: faulty charging system in pre-faclift R170 SLKs]

Vereinzelt Störungen im Klappdachmachanismus (Baureihe 170) [Translation: Problems with folding roof mechanism, all R170 models]
