Why would Mercedes engineers do such a *STUPID* thing as to put a plastic tank on a radiator? I could understand General motors doing such a stupid thing, but Mercedes Benz?
Any engineer worth 2 cents would know that putting a plastic tank on a radiator, no matter how good the quality of the plastic, is not as good as a brass tank that has proved it reliability over many years. Don't the people who design cars ever pay any attention to how much repairs cost when they redesign a part to save the manufacturer a few cents and cost their customers hundreds of dollars later?
