Chinese parts
By richgaz on


2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS550 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (4.7L 8cyl Turbo 7A)


Just had 6 essential relays replaced all from China.
The car has been in the MB shop for two weeks now trying to find other problems.
Never had a brand new car not start.
THis problem has brought to light that MB probably has chinese parts splattered all over.
So why does this car cost so much?
Germans think they can out engineer bad parts.
I will not but another MB.
Over priced for cheap parts - and they still fail no matter how well the design.

Best Features

look great

Worst Features

How about non chinese cheap labor parts. If MB must keep these parts - than drop the price.
