It's the cup holders! Mercedes started downhill when they put cupholders in their cars.

At this point, I wouldn't own a new Benz. I'll wait another 8-10 years and let some other unsuspecting poor slob replace all the hi-tech crap that's going to fail. Then I may snag one.

Mercedes used to run a body style 9-10 years, now it's 5-6. Mercedes also had a uniqe look to them. You wouldn't mistake one for any other make. The new C coupe looks like a Honda Civic and last years E class looked like a Geo from the rear and the new one ain't much better, IMO.

I think Mercedes big mistake was forgetting who and what they were and tried to out Japaneese the Japaneese.
