American cars have gone that way too. New chevys etc. But there are tons of people out there who will buy such products and continue to destroy their vehicles.

btw i rodded out this old radiator with a wiper blade spine, all the passages you see covered in the mud were fully clogged, along with a lot of others too - I think about half the radiator was clogged. and the total crap collected filled styrofoam cup.

good thing is that the radiator for this car is not pricey like a benz - an OEM repalcement is 70 dollars. - but its meant to be as its nowhere near a benz in driving.
