ML Dude:

I hear ya, I've been around awhile, too. I don't think MB is trying for a money making event by owners not properly taking care of their cars, not in there own best interest. I trust MB, so sue me!!! I guess if you can't "buy into" driving a car with an engine that holds 4 or 5 quarts of oil 4 or 5000 miles between oil changes, you probably wouldn't consider driving an engine that holds 2 GALLONS of oil, plus a pint, 10000 miles or so between oil changes, even on Mobil 1 synthetic AND a oil level/quality sensor keeping track of it and calculating out the optimum interval. Oil is alot better now than back in the 60's and 70's, and the engines are alot cleaner too. Cleaner at the tailpipe, cleaner in the crank case I always say (well, I don't always say that, but maybe from now on I will).....Gilly
