well....

I am not trying to say anything for Mercedes Benz. But just imagine MB manufacture so many cars every yr, no matter how good the quality control is, it is almost unaviodable that some of the cars may have defects.One thing I must admit is MB's technician is not as good as they're 5 yrs ago.<br> I think MB has already have one of the best warranty program in the market. Try getting a BMW or Jaguar, I heard that their cars are even worse.<br> Just try to be fair when making comments!<br> <br> <br> <br>

I sold my 96' M3 three month ago with 78,xxx miles. I have only only brought it to the dealer only..

<br> time for power seat problem. The rest of the time are just for service (maybe is just luck). Here is the Mercedes website that you might want to check it out. I know a lot of people don't know about this website. I for one also have alot of problem with my Slk 230 'sport'. I had almost all the problem with the slk they mentioned in the website. I should post my problem in there too but i noticed that there are enought people post the same problem that had already. Let me tell you one MAJOR problem that i had with the SLK red interior is 'paint peeling'. I don't expect that in a $45,000 plus car !!! Did you know that Mercedes used paint to painted the interior in the SLK? I have never seen 'paint peeling' in a Honda Civic my life !!! Here's the website. You should check it out yourself. <br> www.mercedesproblems.com

The car is shaking at stop light, that's not normal ! At least let them know about it the next .....

Tips to make yr CLK looks better

The very first thing that u should put is a Lorinser rear spoiler. A CLK looks WAY better with a rear spoiler. CEC has it.<br> The next thing u should do is to change a nice set of aftermarket wheels, such as Carlsson or Brabus. Personally I like Carlsson better cause too many ppl use Brabus. IF u're driving down the street & see 8 out of 10 ppl have Brabus wheels, why bother changing it? Mind as well keep yr factory wheels. If u're to change something, its better to change something unique. Agree?<br> The third thing u might consider is removing the star on the hood to a flat MB emblem like the SLK.<br> I think the car looks better without the MB star.<br> <br>

Linh...lucky u!

Imagine u're driving a VW or Audi, I doubt they'll change the interior completely!

definitely there is a problem....

my wild guess will be the fuel injection system...<br> but u should let them know, if yr car is shaking at traffic light, it will be shaking at the MB service too, right? Just show yr problem to the technician.<br> By the way, Shygurl, which city do u live?

Its a Thug Life

Oh yeah, and put some sweet purple neon underneath and one of those foot high bad boy stickers! And if you can swing it, snag an R type badge off an Integra and get a AMG badge and then you could have an AMG R Type!! Sweet!! I mean with the spoiler and the badges you could easily make it look like a Honda Civic no problem. Totally awesome in my opinion.
