This is what statisticians call a "self-selecting sample" and it can't be used to gauge the average.

If you didn't know anything about people and you decided to learn by hanging out in the emergency room, you'd probably decide that most people went from one calamity to the next with barely enough time to get their breath between. Same kind of thing here. Read a thread about collapsing spring towers on the 210 body style and you'd probably decide every E320 out there was just an accident waiting to happen, but there's a lot of them out there and most will never have a problem.
