Modern Daimlerchrysler Products

what is wrong with this picture?

i think that the USA is the most lucrative market for daimlerchrysler. yet, those of us in this marketplace do not have the rights that a daimlerchrysler purchaser has in other markets[i.e., the right to tailor the vehicle].

for example, i think that in germany, you could delete that gd lcd screen. as well as a number of other electronic nonsense.


some time ago, in LA, i rented an ML. it had the COMAND[sic] system. SO HORRIBLE. i returned it and took a Lexus LS400 in exchange. it too had a LCD system. i lived with it for a day and a night. god help you if you wanted to change radio stations at night. you had to pull off the road.

i said, BASTA. and returned the Lexus. then i was offered a similar model year lexus without the LCD control system. it was simple and easy to operate archaic technology. what a pleasure.

some months later, returning to LA, i rented a GS400. it was all archaic. what a great car.

at that time, it appeared as if only daimlerchrylser was punishing its aficionados by offering no control option. why is it that i think daimlerchrysler customers of the comand system beg for a DELETE OPTION?

DAMN, but if i was going to be a purchaser of current dc autos, i would not be unless i could delete all the computerized ****.

you know, if dc offered such a delete system of options, i wonder if corporate wouldn't get a hard education.

well, as it is, here is how i vote my delete options key. i shall own and maintain only pre-comand benz products.

until daimlerchrysler gets wise, here is what i have to say....



so it goes.

Question RE: G-Class

How do you like your g-classes? How do they drive, handle, etc. How's the power, and how long do they last? Since it appears you owned an older one, you must have some experience with them. What is there to look for if i was to buy one (Problem areas), and what year should i buy if I don't want to spend a ton? I don't want to take it off road, and my current SUV is a Range Rover, which is very nice except for the mpg. How good are the diesels? I like my 1995 E320 so will consider the G-Class when upgrading the Rover. It will be either a G-Class or a
4.6 HSE RR.

I think its ok to have all these things standard but the owner should definately have a 'delete' option like they do in Europe. Especially for things like chrome fittings and such.
