I am now definitely the fool rushing in. I can hardly sit down today because of being very sore. I decided to let MB do the dirty deed to me again. Even though they ripped me off for the additional 20% savings that they now have because of the devaluated DMark, I bought a 2001 C Class six speed. It will be in Monday or Tuesday.
I couldn't be picky about options or color, but I believe I will be happy with it. I bought it from a different dealer than the one that burned me with the '96 E Class a few years back. Maybe I won't be the one with the lemon this time, and noone who cares that I have a lemon.
I would guess that MBUSA will be building a new sky scraper very soon with all the extra money they kept for themselves due the DMark evaluation.
Even though I could not keep from buying one of these cars, MBUSA is still, in my opinion, a bunch of money grubbing (*&%&*^)(*!!
You're right, the car ROCKS.
Have a great day,
