The broken rear springs probably are my fault for using it as a tow vehicle for most of the 50k miles it has on it now. I fixed that problem by buying a real tow vehicle: a dually F350 Ford powered by a International/Navistar 7.3 diesel.

I do have some gripes however, the steering could use more caster to help it self center, visibilty when backing up is poor, and it's a real pain to get to the doughnut spare tire.

All in all, we got our money's worth, but the local dealer turned me off so much that I won't buy another new MB product again.
Absolutely none of this guy's post is true. Get off the internet.
