"Blame it all on Chrysler" I disagree. This all started long before Chrysler came into the picture. It really started when Mercedes had a serious challenge from Lexus. When they first came out, the LS 400 was a fresh design that was smoother, quieter and required less maintainance. The real kicker was the LS 400 was $5-$7K less than a 300E and had a V-8 vs. a straight 6. After that, Mercedes had to find a way to be competetive. They strayed from their strengths, thus the slide.
