      Why dosen't Mercedes give their cars names instead of confusing alphamumeric designations? Just can't get the hang of that.Also if you study the history of Mercedes history in the US,you will see that in 1957, Mercedes basically replaced Packard in the Studebaker lineup.Therefore,Mercedes is the new Packard.

                  You go Scotty!!! I also heard that Mercedes Benz have a lot of suspension problems as well as electrical too!!! They are endless money pits!!! Plus most Mercedes actually have two batteries. . . . One under the hood and one more in the trunk!!!

                  Basically just buy Toyota or any Asian foreign car. European / American cars are not reliable

                                              Once you work on these cars enough, they are not difficult. Parts are inexpensive relative to what they used to be. All Asian cars are getting very technologically advanced too, so no longer are they the most simple, reliable cars. If you only want a car to get from A-B, get a cheap, older Asian car. If you want stylish, good interior materials, and love cars and how they drive, get a BMW/Mercedes/Audi, or any higher end car!

                                                This video makes me want to ask, are Volkswagens made in Germany better than ones made elsewhere?

                                                  I think they intentionally make premature failures because they are not selling as many cars as other manufacturers so they recoup their losses on the tail end of maintenance issues. The resale value is proof of the schemes undermining the overall quality craftsmanship!

Like all ranges, there are good combinations and bad ones. The 550 engine can have problems. But waving the scan tool around intimidating people isn't helpful. They are no more complex than any other modern vehicle. Then again I am in the UK and not so familiar with the American big iron you appear to favor so I don't have a comparison to fully argue with you.

It is also not much more expensive to buy as compared to other cars, but man, once you buy one of these, the maintenance is not cheap and you feel like as if you bought an elephant.

                                                                                I love your video, even when there was so much hate on Mercedes.
                                                                                I own 2 of them. an w124ce and an w210.
                                                                                i got to say the older models are way better.
                                                                                But finally an Mercedes again, pretty honnost again.

                                                                                  I was thinking about asking you this question but you had already covered it lol. I remember one of my aunts bought a Mercedes a while back & when she saw how much it cost her to replace the muffler she got rid of it lol. The beauty & tech is EXTREMELY tempting but it will break the pockets of a person who can't really afford that luxory. God bless what you do.

                                                                                            Our weekend getaway vehicle is a 06 Mercedes Sprinter van.

                                                                                            The good news is :it was completely built in Germany and shipped over😄
                                                                                            The second good news is it is the very last Sprinter van imported into the United States with the straight five diesel, tried-and-true design.😄
                                                                                            I bought it used 9 years ago but it's been running beautifully😄
                                                                                            I am able to do the routine maintenance myself and I keep up on it. Oil change, fuel filter, transmission fluid change, antifreeze change, even had to put on a new water pump. No problemo😄
                                                                                            BUT now after watching your video I am worried sick😷
                                                                                            Because I need brakes.😵🤤😣😭😞
