Everyone has brought up good points as to why MB is losing ground in this survey, but when the time comes to replace their worn out Benz's, how many will actually buy a Honda or Lexus?
There are lots of MB owners that are not car enthusiasts like us. We're the minority, hate to say. My wife sold her 1998 E300 turbo out of frustration and bought the Subaru that now sits beside my C230. I doubt she'll ever have another Mercedes after the experience she had with that car. Not only was the car junk, but the dealer always acted like it was her fault somehow, and fixed it under warranty but griped the whole time.
She was shopping G35's/ES300's and the like when we stumbled upon the Subaru and the excellent deal it was.
