This is one example where "they don't
make them like they used to." Mercedes
has clearly discredited their name and
reputation with this SUV. Clearly not
assembled in Germany; more likely in a
Chrysler plant. Reliability and
maintenance costs clearly the biggest
draw-back to this car. Resale value is
also very poor as not many people
interested in buying these cars back,
including the Mercedes dealerships. My
recommendation is buy a Lexus.
The interior space as well as excellent
handling in the snow are two of my few
favorite features of this SUV.
Improve quality of hardware,assembly as
well as overall reliability.
