I drove one in Germany when I was here last time in July. Yes, it's a fantastic car. But I'm not going to stand still for them to take a free 12% gain and not share it with me.
I had a nightmare with my last new Benz, four years ago, and much of the nightmare was the Dallas based dealer. I won't mention their name here. If your car never gives trouble, you'll be okay, but if it does, you live in the wrong city in which you can manage to get it fixed.
By running to the dealer to line up and give MBUSA a free 12% to put in their fat wallet, you're throwing gasoline on the fire.
And, by the way, I don't do drugs.
Have a great day,
